Doesn’t look too good. :(

There are a few stallions that are not yet included in this statistic, but it’s quite accurate and clearly shows that the numbers are much lower than earlier.

The age class of 2014 will be the smallest in 40 years. For the last years there have been about 1300 foals born every year but next year there will be less than 1000. The trend is the same in every breed, but the situation of the Finn horse is especially worrying since there are practically no other populations besides this one – it’s all we have.

I'm a Finnish horse enthusiast. This blog is my tribute for the national horse of Finland. I started in 2009. My aim is to provide information about this multipurpose horse breed in English, in all its variety -as a historical and cultural figure, modern sport horse, friend and a companion.
