OFI Thorsten is the only son of Torsetblakken (15hh) in North America! His dam, Thilde (evaluated 82.5, 14.2hh), is a granddaughter of Pluto and comes from a VERY strong dam line. Thorsten has size, substance, and athleticism. He is easy to work with, is very curious, and has the kind, friendly disposition we seek in fjords. Thorsten has been raised in a natural herd environment. He is turned out with mares and foals, respects a single strand of hotwire fencing, and leads with just a rope around his neck. He behaves like a respectable equine citizen and is a wonderfully well-mannered stallion. His pairings should improve upon most mares. Thorsten was started under saddle in 2019; we look forward to a successful dressage career for him!
Thosten will be standing at Olivia Farms from April - June 2020. This will be his final season as a stallion. When he returns from his breeding season, he and Isabella have a date planned and then he will be gelded in the fall. While I considered selling Thorsten as he and his genetics are exceptional, he is worth more as a a dressage prospect than what I can replace him for so unless an amazing offer comes along (and I am not marketing him), I plan to make him my primary dressage horse starting in 2021.
As a breeder, foals by our stallion aren't a good fit for our program! If you are interested in a foal, we have one 2020 colt available by Ale Maribel x Ironwood Lordalen.
