We started our breeding program with Warmbloods but after finding my first fjord gelding as a "fun horse" I was hooked. We imported several fjords from Germany in 2009, two pramienstute mares in foal in 2016, and now again, in 2019 we have several on the way! We have frozen semen from 3 stallions: Vajeur, Dylan, and Pirke. AND Njord Halsnaes has arrived! We have fjords placed in loving homes in BC, WA, OR, and CA! We have several fjords and other breeds available each year as well as 2-4 foals.
Footnote Farm began in 2004 in CA and moved to BC, Canada in 2011. Being a certified instructor with Equine Canada since 1994 and having completed a graduate degree in Psychology Jenny created the name as a play on words as hoofbeats are music to her and to acknowledge the importance of explaining the how and why of animal training. Jenny's focus on the science of learning and animal behaviour creates the training foundation for all the animals at Footnote Farm from birth through life.
