Rock River Vilhelm (Billy-name pending)

$4000

Maribel and Thorsten's  second foal arrived on 4/22/2020.  This muscular, drafty colt has legs that go for miles.  He came out with his dam's massive muscling pattern and has the gorgeous head and neck of both his parents.  He is athletic, kind, and inquisitive colt that could make a nice stallion or a fabulous gelding.  We expect athleticism and calm from this pairing.   Maribel is a quiet, drafty "little big mare".  At only 5 years old, she is in a lesson program teaching kids the same age as her how to ride!  Her quiet, mellow but not lazy personality is just what fjord-seekers are looking for!  Based on her first foal, we expect this foal to mature around 14 hh.

Breeding

DAM:  Ale Maribel is sired by Ironwood Lordalen (14.1hh, 80 eval) our of Dunnganon's Mari with Rudaron and Gromar in her pedigree.   SIRE:  OFI Thorsten by Torsetblakken (15hh) out of Thilde by Plutonikk (14.2hh, 1kl, S4, 82.5 eval )

SOLD to Washington, 2020

 

A supermodel is in the barn!  Tordis is 14.1hh and a VERY sporty 2012 model.   Tordis is a mare I have coveted for a long time and when the opportunity came to add her to our herd, I couldn't pass it up!  We have had her for two years, when she came available following rehab from a bowed tendon as a 4 year old.  By the age of 6 years old, she had a successful and busy show career as a lower-level dressage horse and a beginner novice eventer.  She rides, she drives, she does fancy dressage movements, she jumps clean with tight knees, and, she is simply drop-dead gorgeous to boot.  She also was evaluated a 79 just before her 3rd birthday!   She is very ridable (but should never jump again) and has been ridden regularly following rehab.  She is short-strided on her left front which improves after she is warmed up but her show career is limited.  Her best use is as a broodmare but I feel confident she can easily be used for flat or trail riding on a regular basis.  

Tordis is bred to Thorsten for a July 2020 foal. 


 Tordis is bred for performance.  Tico is her sire; her grandsire on her dam's side is Flotren.   She is bred for athleticism and has an amazing motor and work ethic.

Born 4/2/2020 colt by TUF Anja X OFI Thorsten.  

 

Sandy is an amazing stallion prospect and, as with any good stallion, would make a great gelding!  Born April 2, 2020 by OFI Thorsten by TUF Anja, he offers a perfect blend of big, classic American lines and sporty European lines.  Sandy is a nice sized colt with substantial bone.  He is curious, friendly, and engaging.  He loves to move and has VERY uphill movement for a young guy.  Sandy should mature at 14.1+, have medium bone, and be very athletic.  We breed for intelligence, trainability, and athleticism and expect all this from him in spades!

Sandy will have age appropriate training, payments plans are acceptable, and he will be available at weaning--sometime between 4 and 8 months of age as indicated by mom and baby.

SOLD in 2020 


 TUF Anja is an absolutely gorgeous, 2003 brown dun mare.  I believe Anja is one of the nicest looking fjords mares in the US today.  Anja is the big, drafty mare everyone is looking for while also being a super athlete with a solid mind.  Anja rides and drives, has a beautiful extended trot that takes my breath away every day, and she loves to canter!  Anja stands at 14.1 hh, she has a small, refined head, a balanced body, and clean legs.  Anja is FORWARD--she outwalks everyone of all breeds and she has a go-button to die for!  Both of Anja's parents are evaluated blue.  Rokida's Haakon, her sire, earned an 83.75 for confirmation putting him in the top ten evaluated stallions as of 2003.  Her dam, TUF Reba, earned an 80.5 in confirmation and blues in draft, driving, and western riding earning her a S1, G1 rating.

SOLD in 2019 to Washington.  

Born 6/21/2018 gelding by TUF Anja X OFI Thorsten.  This boy is our dream cross!  Teddy is Mr. Personality.   NFHR Registration #: 18-7469-S  Microchipped

“Teddy” is a gorgeous colt.  He has a lovely head, a well-set neck, and forward, uphill movement.  Teddy should mature to a medium+type build with athleticism and train-ability.  Excellent prospect for dressage, CDE, working equitation, or extreme trail.  

Teddy is an in-your-pocket personality who whinnies at my arrival and is always seeking  affection.  He has a  naturally very curious personality.  Gelded 11/8/18 and weaned 11/18/18.  Teddy lives in a mixed heard of mares, broodmares, and a stallion and is well socialized to other horses.  Both parents are 14.1 (sire is 14.1+ and growing at 3 years).   His sire, OFI Thorsten, is by Norwegian imported semen (he is the ONLY son of Torsetblakken in North America!) and with Teddy you get bloodlines that are a mix of older established lines and unique imported lines.  All grandparents are blue-evaluated except Torsetblakken who is licensed in Norway. Teddy will continue with age-appropriate health care and training experiences until he leaves my farm.

Sold in 2018!  Pregnant mare!

 2-for-1 package!  Mari is in foal to OFI Thorsten!!  Due July 9, 2019! Dungannon's Mari is a 1999 Canadian-bred mare.  She rides and drives and completed a 30-day refresher in June with my dressage trainer. Mari was extremely easy to breed--taking in the first heat and very receptive to my stallion. Mari would be an excellent addition to a breeding program or someone looking to raise a fjord foal with a rideable, easy-going mare.  She is excellent with kids and would make a great beginners lesson pony.  She is 13.3hh with a big hip and a full-barrel. She takes up a lot of leg--aside from being close to the ground, this mare does not feel small at all (rider in photos is 5'9").  She is not mareish and is easy to be around.  Mari has a very smooth trot--easy to sit both at a jog and at a forward trot.  She has a nice pedigree that includes Gromar and Rudaren.

Sold in 2018!  Zoey is the fjord horse everyone wants.  She rides, she drives single and double, she does draft.  She's evaluated blue (80!).  She is 14hh, has a beautiful topline, and is a mellow, kind mare.  Zoey is on her third career:  she started with the Pace's at Fjordbergen Farm where she participated in building a log cabin in the Okanagan wilderness in addition to riding, driving, and making a beautiful baby.   Zoey then moved on to a theraputic riding career at Little Bit.  Zoey was put in the hippotherapy program because of her super smooth gaits.  Zoey is now primarily a broodmare and she is my go-to horse for new riders, friends, and kids.  Zoey is smart, sure-footed, and forward.  

Zoey's pedigee includes Ronaldo, Rei Halsnaes. and Myrstein.  She has a lot of Dutch and Norwegian breed horses in her lineage.  Zoey was imported from Canada.
