Have you ever seen a Norwegian Fjord horse? We were lucky enough to puchase our first Fjord two years ago. I have been around horses all my life and now have become a huge fan of the Norwegian Fjord.
Our first Fjord (Elise) has been breed twice and now we have two more. One is a two year old colt and the other is a year old filly. They are more like family pets than just horses. Just like the family dog, they love attention and have a calm and peaceful manner about them. As you can see in the picture at right they love to help out around the house and offer a watchful eye whenever there is work to be done. Tallak is 2yrs and Nina is the one year old. Sometimes they act so much like pets, I think maybe if I threw a stick they might go fetch it.
My wife has always been a Quater horse lover, but even she admits that there is something about those Fjords that make you want to go give them a big hug.(Just like a Teddy Bear).
