Venn (Norwegian for Friend) was born on Saturday,
June 30th, 2001 at about 1:30 am.
At at 12:30am Saturday morning when I got up to check on Viktoria she was
pacing and pacing. She was also very sweaty, so I sat down in the paddock
to watch and wait. Finally at about 1:10 she lay down beside me and her
water broke. It was textbook from there. Venn was imprinted while Viktoria
Viktoria has been a great mother, good with her son, and
generously lets people visit with him. Venn has inherited his mother's
friendly demeanor and his father's great movement! He looks like he'll
be a darker golden brown dun (like both his mother and father) and should
grow to 14' or 14'1 hands.
Venn has been a joy to handle and train. He has a
very quiet, cooperative demeanour which makes training easy. The farrier
loves him! He has been handled daily, including picking up his feet, giving
to pressure, leading, standing tied, turns on the forehand and haunches,
plastic bags, ropes around his body and legs, Mom's saddle and bridle.
Nothing phases this guy! We feel that he will be a great family horse.
