Fjord stallion, Cadeau Halsnæs. The website translation did not make it clear to me what his color is. My best guess is a dark buckskin dun; called white dun or ulsblaak.

Norweigian Fjords are considered to be "Light Draft" horses.

Fjord Horses are one of the oldest domesticated breeds around, and have retained many of the same characteristics held by the Horses that roamed about Scandinavia after the last Ice Age.

All Fjordhorses retain the primitive markings, which include a dark dorsal stripe; and zebra striping on the legs and, occasionally, across the withers. White markings, with the exception of a small white star, are neither typical nor desirable

The mission of the CFHA shall be to preserve the genetic purity of the breed through the registration of animals and the keeping of pedigrees.
