They do have a primative look. The dun in the first picture looks a lot like a Prewalski's horse. I know that they are not descendants of them, they just have that same primative look.

The Norwegian Fjord Horse Registry

Possibly still my favorite pure breed. They are just such sweet hearts!

Thanks for reminding me! I need go contact the lady whose Fjord I'm supposed to be training. She called me the other day and I never got back to her....

I've already ridden the mare once. She's narrower than I'd imagined Fjords being, but supposedly she's well bred, so maybe that is the breed standard. Cute head, very sturdy legs...kind of an odd mover. Not bad, and not rough, just...mincing? The biggest problem I had is that with her being so short, at around 13.3 hands, her back and neck are short as well, and I feel like I'm practically sitting on her head.

I'd say she looks quite a bit like the mare in this picture:

I've got such a soft spot for them! I've got a Fjord breeder on my FB and she's got some AMAZING stallions. When I finally decide where I want to live I plan on buying one (or 4) from her because she really knows her stuff.

Thought this is interesting esp since we are on the subject of the history of the horse note it doesnt give an exact breed but it does give some cool info . Horses Domesticated 9,000 Years Ago in Saudi Arabia : Discovery News

You know, GH, 14th generation ancestor is practically the same as sire. You can really see the resemblence between the two. You are very lucky that your horse is related to such famous ancestors!

Haffies are a relatively recently developed breed.

I have you beat by a bunch. Appys are a very ancient breed. Here we have a depiction of the great broodmare Eohippadina. Note the reverse leopard pattern and the typical varnish marking at the hip...
