The Norwegian Fjord pony is an ancient breed, which look similar to, the primitive wild horses of Asia. They are 13 to 14 hands high. This pony has a very sturdy body type with little to no withers, a high crested neck and is dun in color. They have a two-tone mane which is dark in the center and light cream on the outside, that sticks up straight, and short legs with feathering. The Fjords were once ridden by the Vikings and now can be found many places around the world. They have a good work ethic, make suitable mounts for riding as well as working in the fields.

Years ago before texting, Facebook, and Twitter - people would communicate with a friend by writing letters back and forth. By becoming a “Pen Pal” you could learn about someone’s life in a different country or in the next state. It was fun to look forward to receiving letters in the mail with a stamp from a far way place. Many people started collecting these stamps, which then turned into a life long hobby. A person who collects stamps is known as a “Philatelist”.
You could become a “Pony Pal” with someone who loves horses as much as you do. Maybe you know someone who does not have a horse, and you could share your adventures with him or her. Or maybe you and your “Pal” could talk about the day when you will become horse owners and what life would be like then. Reach out and connect with another person and share your love and knowledge of horses.
