Norwegian Coldblooded Trotter

Well, this is some pictures of my Norwegian Coldblooded Trotter. Itís a very common breed in Norway, and I think there is a similar breed in Sweden, but I donít think itís a well known breed for the rest of the world.
I have had my Borken (the name we give almost every horse of this color) for 9years now, so he is an elderly gentleman of 17years (of which he know nothing). Borken is a gelding, but he insist he isnít, so we donít talk about that a lot other than when he starts to mount the mares in the summer.
I mostly ride him, but I also take him out driving some times. Earlier it was dressage and jumping, but now itís mostly hobby-reining and trail.
What do you call his color in English? Dun? Buckskin?

A woman needs two animals - the horse of her dreams and a jackass to pay for it.

He is so cute! I want him. He kind of reminds me of my Haflinger but with different coloring.

I think my horse is so beautiful that I post some more pictures of him.

Last spring.

This Christmas, in -20 Celsius degrees (don't know what that is in Fahrenheit?) But it's pretty cold!

And he has the saddest eyes I know!

Wow, he is so handsome! :)

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Uhm.. He is 152cm at the withers. So he is not a big horse, but the perfect size for me!
