I wanted a fjule but then I learned about fjord not being aloud to cross breed. I respect registered who do not allow cross breeding, and I will not buy a cross (ex fjord X or Friesian X). As much as I REALLY like them :(.

I believe they even will reject any more fjords you buy. They completely ban you yourself from their group.

I have to say I love my little fjordling. He's the best horse I've ever had.

Okay, I'm not even a mule person and I want this one! What a stout stocky looking guy/girl.


Anyway, OP, I also don't think that there is any fjord in your guy. The Appy color genes can do some really funky things to a horse coat color and their manes and tails. It looks like he's got varnish along with whichever blanket pattern he's got going on. Varnish can sometimes give enough "frosted" guard hairs on the mane/tail to give it a two-tone appearance similar to that of a fjord.

The fjord mule reminds me a lot of the przewalski horses.

He is a very adorable leopard appaloosa ;)
Fjords are bred for two different heights. The shorter ones , large pony small horse size , as in a horse is 14.2 hh. And some that are15 hh.
If you bred a fjord mare or stallion outside the registry than that mare or stallion can loose the registration
Papers, if a person is turned in. I tried to get the papers on my Fjord mare, and as she had been bred to horses that were not fjord her papers were 'destroyed' . Makes no sense , because the offspring cannot be registered, and it does not harm the mare ..

I just did a quick run-thro and found nothing about disqualifying a registered Fjord because of an outbreeding. Like all registries the off-spring cannot be registered unless there's a half registry floating around somewhere. DNA testing is required to validate that the foal is of registered stock before it is registered. I think someone has handed you a line. I can't see a registry acting on a tattle-tale without a proper investigation. Unfortunately too many owners don't transfer the papers and after a few changes of hands the stories get elaborate.

Personally, I don't see any Fjord in the OP's horse, either. Having a similar mane could be attributed to a whole bunch of things... like color xD

My word, that Fjule (teehee) is AWESOME. I want.

From NFHR itself.

D. In the interest of protecting the genetic purity and the highest standards of the Norwegian Fjord Horse, the NFHR Registrar will withdraw from the Norwegian Fjord Horse Registry any mare or stallion that is used for crossbreeding with another breed or species. Violators may have their membership suspended and may lose all membership privileges including registration, transfer of horses and any voting rights. The names of horses who have been crossbred and their owners will be placed on the suspended list.
E. The NFHR will not allow registration of any horse produced by cloning, gene splicing or other artificial enhancement or manipulation of the equine genome
