It’s a girl! Spring Arrives with a Norwegian Fjord Filly
Spring has arrived in Indiana, and we are very happy to announce the arrival of a foal as well. The beautiful SDF Sirene arrived on the morning of March 7, 2013. ‘Siri’ is purebred brown dun Norwegian Fjord horse filly by our champion stallion PCF Vidar, out of SNF Ragin.
Although her dam was a maiden mother, her foaling went very smoothly – in fact, Ragin surprised us with a delivery in the half hour between breakfast and turnout time. Siri stood and nursed and passed her benchmarks with flying colors. While all Fjord babies are cute, it does take a bit of time for them to fluff up and achieve the full bloom of cute-ness, and within a few days she was fully ‘adorable’.
Siri, (named from the Old Norse name Sigríðr, which was derived from the elements sigr “victory” and fríðr “beautiful, fair”), has been revealed to be a very correct, handsome, and inquisitive Fjord. At seven weeks of age, she is filling out, shedding her foal coat to reveal a very feminine face, and enjoying the new pasture grass.
Siri has been socialized since her birth, and her basic de-sensitizing training is ongoing. She is friendly, curious, and fairly bold. Her sire, PCF Vidar, is an athletic, intelligent and very bold two-time Dressage Pony Cup champion by the 1998 and 1999 Horse of the Year (Denmark) Kastenjegardens Fernando. She is an extremely well-bred filly, with an unusual lineage in the United States, ideally suited to the adult-amateur rider or driver who wishes to develop her into a show prospect.
