My New Fjord Mare!!!

I'm so excited!! Got myself a gorgeous Fjord mare yesterday
Her name was Chubby Checkers (for good reason) but we've been calling her Bella.
She's a 10-year-old but she's only green broke. WONDERFUL temperment though & she'll be awesome once she learns to turn!
Here are some pics from today..

Oh she's a real sweetie!
Not sure if she's registered but I think i'll get her checked for a chip anyhow just to find out.

Wow, she's cute, but definitely see where she got her name from. I know someone here who is BIG into Fjords, and honestly she hardly feeds them anything (it also doesn't get really cold here though), and they keep weight very very well. No alfalfa, because it apparently is very easy for them to get stones, and founder, no grains either, just bermuda and orchard I think. I've ridden a couple of her Fjords, and they were very fun rides. Not exactly my breed of choice, but definitely friendly, and sweet natured. Hope you have lots of fun with her.

Oh yes lol I learned to ride on my friend's parents' Fjord gelding when I was a kid & have always LOVED their looks & temperment I've always wanted one but have never had the chance to buy one over the years.
It was actually kind of a fluke that I got Bella at all, as I traded my Quarab mare for her & I had met her owner over the internet when I did a painting for her. Sometimes things work out funny like that though!
