Raising Norwegian Fjord Horses Since 1973
"Disposition, Conformation, Versatility"
Saturday, August 18, Anita and Edward Goodfellow and their five daughters came from Victoria, BC to look at the Fjord mares. When they emailed and inquired about a bred mare suitable for their family I mentioned that Lisbet was the closest match to what they wanted even though she had not been rode or drove in six years. I had previously decided to bring Lisbet in and condition her with the idea of making her my personal riding horse. I have ridden very little the past 30 years and with my jaw surgery still healing I wanted a good quiet horse I could trust and decided Lisbet was my best choice to enjoy walking and trotting the trails with friends. Orville rode her for me and I got to ride her once before the Goodfellow family arrived. Lisbet had remembered everything about the bit and cues from when she was a three year old. Was incredible to be able to ride her after a six year lay off for raising foals.
Really enjoyed our time visiting and looking at horses with the Goodfellows. The five girls where fun to have around and two of the daughters had a ride on Lisbet while another one tried to catch the wild kittens. That evening, leaving Edward with the girls, Anita came back out by herself and we took Jussi and Josefa for a drive around the property and seen more of the horses. The outside bunch had been good enough to come home while the whole family was here in the afternoon and they did get to see all the Fjords in a loose herd.
The Goodfellows decided to buy Lisbet as well as Josefa. What a incredible pair of mares to start off a small breeding program with. Congratulations to The Goodfellows on their choice of mares.
