Winter Is Over... Finally!
Winter in Northwest Illinois came in with a bang and decided to stay awhile. The Fjords felt right at home in the cold and wind. But spring has arrived and with its arrival we are expecting the birth of three foals.

A Kastanjegardens Fernando x Sandura foal due to arrive April 15th. A Tico x GVF Maja foal due to arrive April 23rd and a GVF Sjokolade x Sterda foal due May 5th.

These foals will be available for sale after weaning in about four months.

Custom Breeding Program
We provide one of our top-rated mares and either one of our champion stallions or another stallionís genetic make-up to deliver a foal with amazing potential. If you either do not own a mare of your own but wish to experience the joys of a foal this program is for you.We guarantee a live and healthy foal which will be released to you upon weaning around 4 months of age. At that point the foal will be halter broke, use to being clipped and capable of working with a farrier as well as loading in a trailer. All shots and health inspections will be up-to-date. As the new owner of the foal you are more than welcome (and encouraged) to visit the mare at any time prior to and after foaling. A strong bond can be achieved with many visits under your belt. Naming of the foal is strictly up to you.

Following is a listing of available Mares and Stallions. Some are available on the web site, all are available on the NFHR pedigree search. Click individual names to go directly to their pedigrees.
