Rory and Kristin Miller from Strawberry Hill Fjords will be showing their stately fjord horses. The Norwegian fjord horse is a relatively small, but very strong horse breed from the mountainous regions of western Norway. It is an agile breed of light draft horse build. All Fjord horses are dun in color, with five variations in shade. One of the world's oldest breeds, it has been used for hundreds of years as a farm horse in Norway, and in modern times is popular for its generally good temperament. It is used both as a harness horse and under saddle. These gentle horse love to pose for pictures!
