The fjord or Norwegian fjord horse is really a pretty and one of my favorite breeds next to mustangs, rocky mountain horses and a few other breeds. (which I haven't talked about yet). One reason is for their looks, which is different from most horses. For example, their mane stands up like a zebra's mane and also (sometimes) has black and white stripes on their mane and tail or black mane with white mane hair on the outer side. Sometimes the outer lighter mane is cut into cubes for looks like this picture I drew here.
The 10% left is usually 'red dun' or 'gray dun' (rarely gray dun). They even come in a cream color that also comes with blue eyes! They could even have a stripe down the middle of their back. The horse I used to ride, Raleigh, is a darker colored dun, black main and tail with a stripe down his back. Although he's definitely not a fjord horse, he has a lot of the same colors. Fjord horses could have this stripe and rarely a stripe across the withers. Fjord horses could have small brown spots on their head and body.
This picture of a fjord horse is a gray dun. This horse is really pretty!
Fjord horses are heavy enough to plow, pull timber or drive. They are even light enough for different kinds of riding. They are very sure footed in mountains and could climb rocky places very well. They are mainly used for driving and they're entered in different driving sports as well. And sometimes are dressage horses.
