Warm, inviting, and beautiful colours of the Norwegian Fjord Horse. There is a horn on the forehead, which is yellow and has a few short lines. The typical size of horses is about 75-100 cm tall.
The Norwegian fjord horse is unique. It comes in various colours, from white to black, to shades of brown, brown, grey and a few other colours like a person with albinism. They are usually anything but docile and calm, but they are beautiful because they are strong.
People always loved watching the Norwegian Fjord Horses grazing in the archipelago of Sogn and Bjortolandet, an island group off the southern coast of Norway.
These beautiful animals are native only to the area and are thought to have descended from the horses that brought the Vikings to Norway. Few people know, however, that these horses also make for incredible artwork in the form of stained glass windows.
More and more people now choose to own, ride and show Fjord horses. Through these and other people, we feel connected to these special animals.
Fjord horses live worldwide, and there’s still so much to learn about them! They are stunning, unique and stunningly unique. From their long, flowing manes and tails to their humps on their backs, Fjords are some of the most beautiful horses on the planet. All about Fjords is dedicated to showcasing all things fjord, from the horses to the people who love them.
Since the age of the Vikings, people have looked to the colours of the Norwegian fjord horse as a symbol of hope. The colours red, white, and black symbolise both the horse’s coat and the colours of the cross.
The Norwegian Pilgrim’s Cross is a reminder of hope and all that’s been achieved and a symbol of the ever-increasing struggle for all who follow in Christ’s steps.
There are no prancing thoroughbreds in the Norwegian fjord horse. A strong, swift, fat-bellied animal wades and slogs its way through dense, ice-cold water and rough, snow-capped beaches.
It’s an equal-opportunity workhorse that helps haul some of the cargo aboard an ocean-going ship. But this workhorse is also a beauty. Gorgeous.
