Norwegian Fjordhorses - what do you think?

I'm from Norway and grown up with this fantastic breed. The fjordhorse. I've seen a lot of fjord in other countries, but it's not the same. They are just odd. They look and act different.





This is the brown dun stallion Fattnes Jonas. He is gorgeous!

In Norway they are either small, lazy and CUTE, or they're tall and vigorous.

The brown dun colour is the most common one.



This is the grey fjord stallion, Lyngheims Grane.



This is the uls dun stallion, Herman. I just love this colour, and the horse of course




This is the rare colour Yellow dun. Only 1/2 % of the fjords are yellow dun. This is the gelding Myrfaks Nordgård. There's no one living yellow dun stallions in Europe.


Here is all the fjordhorse colours.

So, what do you think about fjords?

Never before have I seen a Norwegian fjord that wasn't dun.

I like their manes, but they kinda look all the same to me.

That is because you have seen so many of them. I have never even seen one in person. ;P

Do their manes ever fall over or do they have to be cut to keep it like that?

They are very pretty though

I have always adored these horses. My friend lived in FL for awhile and I went to visit her there. We went to the stable to see her horse and there was a Fjord there. Too cute! :)
