So if I'm doing the math correctly he is 15 hands. That is perfect!
LOL thinking about shipping costs from Norway to mid south US!!!
He is so lovely. You should be terribly proud!

Borkus,

Have you heard anything about the trotters being exported to the US much? I have never seen a single one over here, and I've been looking. The Fjords and Icelandics are both pretty popular in the US. I think the Fjords are because of their sweet temperament and unique coloration, and the Icelandics are just cool in their own right. But the coldblooded trotter is a much more comfortable ride, it's bigger, and is usually nice and spirited, so I'm very surprised that they haven't become popular in the US. Have I been looking for the wrong breed? I've been looking for the Døle Gudbrandsdal, and the coldblooded trotter is another name for it, or an offshoot from it, is it not? Please correct me if I've been looking for the wrong horse, as I would really like to find one in the US.

And I think we'd call Borken a Buckskin:

Think you are right on that, and yes it’s a perfect size!
Thank you, I am very proud of him and think he is the perfect horse for me. Although I never wanted a “hairy beast” I have felt in love with the hair and the attitude in these horses.

Never heard of it, sorry. But I would not be surprised if someone started to ship them over, and I think they would be very popular. It’s a great breed and makes nice horses if trained right; they have a lot of motor and love to work. Borken seems to be happier the heavier the work is and never gives up, and the way he lights up when I tell him he’s done well!
Another good thing with this breed is their short back; this makes it easier for them to put the weight on the hind legs, and it makes a pretty strong horse that can carry even bigger riders.
The Coldblooded trotter is not the same as the Døle, it’s the lighter version. It started out as the same breed, but some individuals were breed to trot faster (this became the Coldblooded trotter), while the other horses were kept the same way as before (the Døle Gudbrandsdal or Døl like we call them), to work on the farms. You can cross these two horses, but it’s not normally done. So, nearly the same horse, but one is heavier than the other.

I love learning about breeds that I am unfamiliar with. Thanks for posting. He is a very attractive guy and I would love to see more photos, not only of you two, but all about riding in your country.

I have a student from Norway. I'll have to ask her about this breed.

Just so you can see some other horses of the same breed:
This is the father of my horse, Bork Rigel. He did 345 races in his career, of which he won 168. And the total sum of money he won was 2 362 789,949 USD, which is the highest sum in Norway, trough all time.

And… No, not everyone is Buckskin- they do come in a lot of colors. (But personally I love this color!)



This is the lovely Vinterrappa. She has one of the most amazing personalities I have ever met in my 14year with horses. She would try to jump the moon if you asked her!
Uh.. I only have pictures of horses in this color, but they do come in other colors too, honest.
