    Congrats! We have 5 Fjords in our barn, two of which are gray. If you are interested in more grays, or know someone who is, I'd like to sell mine. Henrivende our stallion is 15 and Juliette our mare is 9. They are both registered. Thanks

    You'll LOVE her!

    I have two - both ride, drive, and teach kids how to ride. You can see my two boys on my page.

    Keep us all posted! I can't wait for pics!

    Who is she? What's her story?

    Beautiful horses! I love the look of the braided manes on them. They look sharp with the shorter manes too! Thanks for the pics!

    She comes from Sorum Fjord Farm in Lebanon, Ohio. One of their horses was the Fjord poster child for the World Equestrian Games last year and one of their mares, Maarta is the only Fjord to win at a national eventing championship. She's only 13.3H! She is on the cover of the Fjord Herald.
    Sadly, Mr. Sorum passed away unexpectedly a few weeks ago and they are selling a lot of their stock. I think they currently have 30 or so Fjords. Thats how I came about getting SNF Jensi.
