KidMag Fact Page! This Month’s Theme Is… North Swedish Horses!

This article was written by eleven-year-old Katie D. from Calgary, who found her love of horses from an online game called Star Stables. 

North Swedish Horses are an agile, easy to train horse that can weigh up to 750 kilograms and can be as tall as 158 cm. They come in all colours, shapes and sizes but the most common size will bigger in weight than in height. These horses are in the draft horse category that also includes Clydesdale Horses as well as Shires.

North Swedish horses have very big hoofs, but the foals, which are baby horses, are very little and don’t have a lot of fur. These horses are also working horses for pulling many different things, such as hay and people.
