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?

That is one BEAUTIFUL horse. <3

You can cross these two horses, but itís not normally done. So, nearly the same horse, but one is heavier than the other.
Aha. Yes, that makes perfect sense. It's the trotter I want (but can't find). For those unfamiliar with the breed, here's a picture of a DÝle (DÝlagamp) on a farm. This one is a working farm horse. I see now in comparison that it's definitley much heavier and wider than Borken. The Coldblooded Trotter would make for a much more fun and agile ride. I always thought the dÝle just came in a lighter and heavier version. I didn't realize they were different breeds.
Unfortunately, I don't think knowing that will actually make my search for one any easier.

I'm just now realizing how many of my pictures of my kids on vacation in Norway involve Fjord and DÝle horses. There seems to be a recurring theme here. I'm beginning to think my kids have a plan...

Your Borken is absolutely gorgeous. I don't think he cares one bit about his age.
