[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: North Swedish Farm Horse   [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The North Swedish Farm Horse is a subtype of the North Swedish Horse breed, and can be regarded as the original form of this breed. It is bred for its ability to work as a draft horse, especially on farms and forests. As such, it is heavier and shorter, but also stronger, than the second subtype of the North Swedish Horse, the North Swedish Trotter.

North Swedish Farm Horses come primarily in the colors of brown, bay, and black, but in rare cases they can also be chestnut or grey. In addition, they often have a mealy coat. North Swedish Farm Horses can also be buckskin, palomino, or smoky-black. However, note that double-cream dilutes are not acceptable in this breed, because the North Swedish Association doesn't recognize them and doesn't approve such horses for breeding. Therefore, it is not recommended to cross two horses who are heterozygous for cream (Cc). North Swedish Farm Horses stand between 14.1hh and 15.3hh.
