Any horses currently for sale are listed below
• To reserve a foal (or any horse that is not ready to leave, such as a lactating mare or a young colt awaiting castration), we require a 25% deposit. Once a foal is fully weaned (or an older horse becomes ready to leave), we require a minimum of an additional 25%.
• To reserve a weanling or older horse ready to leave except for any interstate travel paperwork, we require a minimum 50% deposit.
• Full payment is required before any horse leaves Lost Creek Fjord Horses.
Horses are family to us and to many others; it's important that we place each individual leaving our family into another situation that is a good and long-term match. As such, we do not sell newborn foals nor do we "pre-sell" foals in utero.
Once a foal has established themselves enough to let us know who they are, and once they are able to show us what they are best suited for, we will attempt to match that foal with any pending requests in our current "waiting pool" as well as listing them for sale here and elsewhere. The supply of purebred Fjords on the market is currently minimal, so if you are seriously interested in buying one, don't wait too long to contact us! Be sure to tell us about your situation, what you are looking for, and if you have a budget you need to stick to.
All of our foals are microchipped, DNA tested, and registered with CFHA prior to departure (exception — registrations for colts being sold with a geld clause will be not be submitted until proof of castration is received). In the interest of assisting other breeders with the important task of rare color preservation and type improvement of the rare colors, fillies will also have a DNA color test if the results are not already obvious based on parental color genome.
We never intend to sell our adult horses, but there are times we discover that a better-fit partner or career is their best choice. If you are looking for a Fjord horse older than a weanling, it's a good idea to contact us with your "wish list" (and your budget, if applicable) ... just in case we (or someone we know) is thinking of parting with a horse that could be your Fjunicorn.
Please remember — our horses are handled and trained to be partners and respectful friends, using natural horsemanship methods. They are kept together as a herd in a bare-ground track paddock with daily turnout time for grazing and cavorting in larger pastures. This upbringing has consequences, and as such, our foals will not fit into all situations:
• Our foals grow up expecting to be handled often and at an individualized pace. They will not be happy in a regimented or "traditional" environment; they also won't understand being "turned out to grow up".
• Our foals grow up within a herd where adult horses are in the majority; those adults constantly teach and reinforce cooperative and respectful equine social skills within the herd. Our foals will not be happy nor do well if turned out primarily or entirely with competitive agemates.
• Although our foals are stalled periodically from a young age to prepare them for the high likelihood of short-term stalling in their future, they definitely will not anticipate nor appreciate living in a box full time.
• Our fillies learn that humans are good as friends and fun as activity partners; they won't anticipate nor will they be happy being considered walking-incubators-with-a-pedigree.
