Here at Foxvangen Farm we take pride
in selectively breeding for specific uses. While all
our horses make terrific trail mounts we like them to
also have a little extra talent and ability. To that
end we breed two general conformational types.
The first type is built for free wheeling, enduring
motion and conformation suitable for sports such as
field trials, competitive trail, endurance or any other
sport requiring a modicum of speed and endurance.
The second type is bred for quick, athletic ability
common to ranch horses. These horses are designed for
sports such as gaming, cow penning, reining or any other
sport requiring a horse to be quick on it's feet and
be able to make split second turns when asked.
With all of them the same natural foxtrot gait is
bred in along with the lap dog personality and affectionate
nature that are the hallmarks of the original foundation
type Missouri Foxtrotter. Just don't forget there's
a real active brain in that pretty head because these
horses like to work and are exceptionally quick to learn.
To that end we selected mares for our breeding stock
that each had something special to offer. They are carefully
crossed to stallions we have chosen to be catalysts
for the desired quality and ability. Within a couple
generations our stock is well on the way to standardization.
We have kept back specific mares we bred from a carefully
chosen group of stallions to bring yet another generation
into the world
Our motto is: "if each generation is not better
than the last then we have not done our job properly"
While all our horses are outstanding representatives
of the breed, no horse is perfect so there is always
room for some improvement.
We and our clients are very pleased
with our product and it is largely due to the mares
on this page that we can be.
