    Norwegian names
    • ‘Brunblakk’ = Bay Dun, more than 90% of all fjords show this colour
    • ‘Rødblakk’ = Chestnut Dun
    • ‘Grå’ = Grullo/a, and/or grullo + 1 cream allele
    • ‘Ulsblakk’ = Bay Dun with 1 cream allele
    • ‘Gulblakk’ = Chestnut Dun with 1 cream allele
    • ‘Kvit’ = Any of the top three with two cream alleles. These nearly white horses with blue eyes are often not desired.
    Gra then I guess? From the pics I have seen this looks to be the most similiar..
    Thank you for taking them in!
    He looks like a little tank already..

    Ough, I like that color name “Ulsblakk“ that ginster posted.
    Such a cute word for a name. “Uly“ for short~!!

    Thanks all! It was something I really wanted to do. I've always adored fjords ever since I leased one , and my mother has always wanted one. I know it's not quite on the reined cow horse path, but I figure when leif (I call him leaf, it's pronounced layf) is a bit older, he will be my moms riding horse, and he can baby sit the young stock once they are weaned. For now he gets to be a baby! I will be picking him up in the next few weeks hopefully.

    @turnnburnlynx I'm not in a position to own, unfortunately! If I was, though...oh, so fuzzy! *_*

    The colt is most probably not purebred Fjord. Maybe Fjord QH cross?

    Anyway, very nice looking colt.

    He is not purebred. His momma is a fjord, and the believe dad to be a percheron who also went through the sale, but we will see. For funsies when he gets here, I am going to genetic test him.

    I believe we will be picking him in 2 ish weeks!
