What is a Fjord horse?

I feel like introducing some breeds, and I'm going to start with the very distinctive Fjord horse.

The Fjord horse is a draft pony that originates in Europe. It's known for its color - all Fjord horses are dun and have a mane that is black in the center and white on the outside. The bicolored mane is normally hogged or roached to show off the coloring.

Fjord horses are great driving horses and very, as you can see, cute. They're an old breed (like most of the draft/heavy ponies in Europe).

Look at that spiky mane-hawk.
