Here is a little about us and our Norwegian Fjord love story. While there are plenty of "official" websites as well as websites that have the official Norwegian Fjord history on them, we thought we would share our personal history, journey & the reasons why we choose the Norwegian Fjord horse for our family.
My (Corinne) first encounter with a Norwegian Fjord horse was 1996 when a customer brought in to my work where I sold horse trailers. I was instantly captivated ... mesmerized by this amazing creature.
It had a quiet, calm demeanor that I had never seen before. Having been raised with Shetland & Welsh ponies, Arabians, Thoroughbreds, Saddlebreds & yes, even the occasional Quarter Horse, this was a new temperament.
This horse was stunning to look at, different than anything I'd ever seen before. It had the distinct "Mohawk" styled mane and an interesting dun stripe that ran from it's forelock all the way to it's tail. "Yes," was the answer to my questioning if this how they normally look.
In addition, it's gorgeous, big, brown Golden Retriever eyes drew me in and I instantly KNEW that someday I would own one of these beauties. I just knew someday that I wanted to have a beautiful farm, where people could come just to enjoy the surroundings. With a husband that was a landscaper (and now is an Architectural/Engineering Drafter), the landscape part was easy. How and when would my farm animals arrive...it became a time of waiting and preparation.
forward a few years & I started doing my research on the Norwegian
Fjord horse over the internet. I quickly came to realize that, "hey,
there aren't many of these around". After many years of research, I
finally ended up finding two sweet mares both in foal, and brought them
to the farm.
