Fjords love winter!
Sunset over the Bay of Fundy...
Our horses are bred from the best examples of fjords in history. This quality shows in intelligence and temperament of our Fjord foals.
This special location makes a definite difference in the hardiness & 'shore footedness' of Blue Raven horses.
All of our horses are athletic, with spectacular movement. We're proud that our offspring do extremely well in Dressage, excel in Jumping, and they all have a LOVELY temperament!
Birth Announcement - March 31, 2020 - A spectacular new foal has recently arrived, Blue Raven's Superman, son of our new herd stud, Orka's Spirit. He is a Red Dun, but his soft fluffy coat is mostly white with flashy red dorsal markings, and his irresistible eye is grey-blue (for the moment).
His dam is our Lilli, a Brown Dun, while his sire Spirit is a Cream Diluted Red Dun (resembling palomino colouring).
This newcomer is now our official Farm 'Spokesfoal'
and will be learning about life & love at Blue Raven
Farm as spring advances; we'll be posting the
stories of his wide-eyed adventures as time goes by.
He is just one day old in this photo, but already
perky and ready for trouble! Like our new Facebook
Page to see his adventures...
Superman Speaks - May 9, 2020 - 'this is me at only one day old (above) - I was born March 31st, so I'm no April Fool, I'm smart. soooo smart. They tell me my Auntie Maxi is about to give birth, MAYBE to a filly. But I want a baby brother to play with and boss around - girls are no good! and no way would a girl be prettier than me either. Here are some more 'glam shots' of me below...'
Birth Announcement - May 11, 2020 - Superman Speaks - 'Oh poo, my silly Auntie Maxi had a filly last night! And I wanted a baby brother to play & run with. This little Maisie mooch is sooo focused on food - typical! She'll never be as fast as I am either!'
Maisie - 'Hey, a girl's gotta eat! You should talk piggie!'
Superman - 'Well I gotta keep up my strength - 'cos I'm faster than a bolt of lightning! You're nowhere near as fast as Super-Me!"
Maisie - 'am too, am too! See? so there!'

About Blue Raven Farm -
Blue Raven Farm is nestled in a beautiful valley with rolling hills and pastures overlooking the ever-changing moods and dramatic tides of the world-famous Bay of Fundy.
Moving from Germany in 1999, Inge started breeding Norwegian Fjord Horses in Nova Scotia.
Where the Fjord Horses live - Nova Scotia is one of Maritime Provinces of Canada (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island) and is well known for it's beautiful "Indian Summer", the Cabot Trail, lobsters, scallops, cold water shrimp and so on.
The very end of the Bay of Fundy, the Minas Basin, has the world's highest recorded tides. The tidal measuring point is just five minutes by car far from our farm and we live with the constant in-coming and out-going of the tide.
We have beautiful walks or rides on the shore by the sea, but have to take care when the tide is coming in. The level of the rising water is normally between 12 – 16 metres and even higher in stormy weather. Just imagine this!!! Nova Scotia is a world renowned tourist destination, and our area in particular makes a wonderful vacation spot.
All our horses from the very beginning are respectful and confident and feel comfortable with humans, and so they will do what you ask for. Learn more about our 'Fjord Fjhilosophy'
Fjord Horses are the most smart, calm and human kindly horses we have discovered. They are also the most willing and working horses but they will ask you "why". Just explain and they will do it all for you!
