Uh. So. I..um..bought a Fjord.

I went to an auction with my BO, trainer, and a couple of other coworker/friends from the barn on Friday. We went out back to check out the horses that were going to be ran through. I happened to see through one pen..a handful of Fjords. I'm not sure how much I've mentioned it on the forum, but I absolutely adore Fjords. I've been harassing my BO about bringing one back for me if there is one every time she goes to an auction for over a year and they tease me about it.

So I see these Fjords. I shriek and make a scene and people stare. I was beside myself. However, what the hell am I supposed to do with another horse? Really. So after the loose horses start, it turns out there are TWENTY SEVEN of these Fjords. All weanlingish age. The group of people I am surrounded by are all pushing me to get one because they know how much I want one and we'll figure out the logistics of it later.

Pretty soon they're going for $1 or $2 EACH. I end up throwing up my hand..I got one for $15. I think the most expensive went for about $40 and it was the biggest of the lot.

So uh yeah. I own a Fjord that I bought for $15. I've decided that even if I can't afford her, I could even just give her away and would only be losing $15.

Oh! And then my roommate (also a boarder at this barn) bought a grade QH weanling filly for $10. She's a little dun and has been named Java. Neither have been touched so we just kind of had to shoo them onto the trailer and back out. Roommate did get a halter on my Fjord at the barn because she's pretty derpy. We attempted to catch Java yesterday just to get a halter on her. Yeah. Didn't work at all.



My Fjord also doesn't have a name. I was really hoping for something Scandinavian, but I'm bad at this. In my name planning for ever having a Fjord, it was always a gelding so I had several in mind for that. Not for a filly.

Oh I know. We're working on fattening her up. The sad thing is..she was one of the more filled out ones. :/

Do I know what Uff da is? That would be a cute name if I didn't say it all the time about everything. Hahaha.

Wow! Congrats on fulfilling a dream & for so little (start-up) cost. Hard to believe weanlings go for so cheap. Is she about 6-7 months old? Nice filly your friend bought, too.

Congrats_ she sure is a cutie!

I'm really not sure about her age. For being as unhandled as she appears to be, she did allow us to pick up her feet (back feet required a leadrope though) and mess with her mouth. If I had had my camera, I would have taken a picture of her teeth to judge her age.

She is very pretty and I would call her Wher King Onit, good Scandanavian name that, but really she looks like a Flicka to me Yeah I know it is corny, but as soon as I saw this pic

It just shouted Flicka at me
