Sales Policies

• 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 truly family to us, and that's not just some marketing buzz phrase we slapped up here.  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.  We will, however, pre-sell the outcome of custom breedings.  Part of the process of a custom breeding contract is ensuring the outcome will meet the primary needs and desires of a buyer, and also ensuring that buyer is truly committed to the resulting foal for the long haul.

All of our horses 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 and mares will also have a DNA color test if the results are not already obvious based on parental color genome.

The supply of purebred Fjords on the market is somewhat limited, so if you are seriously interested in buying one but don't see anything listed here, feel free to contact us anyway.  Be sure to tell us about your situation, what you are looking for, your timeline, and if you have a budget you need to stick to.  The more details you provide, the more nuanced our response can be.

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 own horses are handled and trained to be partners and respectful friends, using Horse Speak® and modified natural horsemanship methods. They are kept together as a herd in a bare-ground track paddock for weight control and hoof health with daily turnout time for grazing and cavorting in larger pastures.  This upbringing and management style has consequences, and as such, our horses and foals will not fit into all situations:

•  Our foals grow up expecting to be handled regularly and at an individualized (and age-appropriate) pace.  They DO love expanding their horizons and current limits with the guidance and support of a patient and protective human friend.  They will NOT be happy going straight into a regimented or "traditional" environment for adult horses; 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 from a variety of adult equine roles, not just "my tired mom" and "someone else's tired mom".  Experience has shown that 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 from us that humans are good as friends and fun as activity partners; they don't anticipate nor will they be happy being considered future walking incubators.
