FeNomen project

The three national Norwegian horse breeds, the Dole horse, the Fjord horse, and the Nordland/Lyngen horse are all listed on the FAOs list of endangered breeds.

In 2019 the available breeding populations consisted of ~2500 Dole horses, ~2800 Fjord horses (in Norway) and ~1600 Nordland/Lyngen horses, respectively (Norsk Hestesenter, 2020). However, only ~15% of the available mares are covered each year.

The Swedish-Norwegian Foundation for Equine Research have funded the project FeNomen: Fertility in native Norwegian horse breeds.

The project is explaned in an article, written by :
