Feelings Malfournier FJ, by Edwin (NL) FJ and Klosterhof’s Wilhelmine (DE) FJ by Stedjeblakken FJ, is born on May 17, 2015.

She is the first filly of our breeding program.

Feelings is an adorable filly, very close to humans, willingly joking which earned her the nickname little “Feelou” – “filou” is trickster in french.

Feelings measures 1.45m and if it takes a few more centimeters it will remain smaller than its mother, of which it nevertheless has the model.

Presented at one year in Leisure Label and then in two years in Leisure qualification, she is not afraid of anything, performs all the exercises with curiosity and happiness – She is “Selection” in Leisure label (and even Elite in Friendly Leisure Label).

Feelings measures 1.46m and if she really started work the year she was 6 years old, she shows great predispositions in dressage.

Her first amateur competitions are intresting and she never ceases to amaze us. She has the potential and the character to perform in the future !

JustForYu – 2019

JustForYu is born on April 19, 2019 by Fjellkaisar (NO) FJ and Chloé d’Ober FJ by Merlin (DE) FJ.

JustForYu will be tall – he seems to be following in the footsteps of his half-brother Hercule for the moment.

Very curious, he is always in the front row, whatever happens and if he does not push the others, he always comes back calmly without being impressed by the speed of the other foals.

He is calm and thoughfull, which does not prevent him from having character – rarely the first to do an exercise, he prefers to observe what is happening with others, while being glued to us …

JustForYu has grown a lot, which makes difficult to assess its future model. He has pretty gaits and lots of potential for this so nice colt who never ceases to amaze us.

JustForYu is the first Fjord horse to have participated in the French 3-year-old Sport Championship organized by the FPPCF (Federation of Ponies & Small Horses of France) during the Sologn’Pony 2022 in Lamotte Beuvron.

JustForYu did us so proud and, if he misses the podium by a hair, finishing 4th out of seven ponies in section E, he obtains superb results with:

  • The SECOND NOTE at the RIDIND GAIT: 15/20

Idyllix is ​​a promising filly, which should be tall, and we are waiting a lot from her.

What she shows us since she has been broken in confirms our hopes: gaits, balance, dynamism, and as a bonus a golden character.
