Do you have a Fjord, but just don’t think you can sell it?
We accept consignment sales Fjord horses at Ironwood Farm. Consignment arrangements are based on the condition of the horse -- training, behavior, and suitability for the market are primary considerations. Our consignment arrangements include keeping the horse in regular work, taking the horse to shows as appropriate, and marketing the horse through electronic media. We make videos and handle all buyer requests. We only take a limited number of consignment horses at any time because we want to concentrate our efforts on getting specific horses sold.
Selling a horse is not simple. The Fjord market is a NATIONAL one. It requires the availability to answer questions and requests, the appropriate setting to showcase the horse, and experience with sales contracts. As one of the largest Fjord breeders in the mid-Atlantic region, Ironwood Farm has the facility, the experience, the market recognition and the skill at selling Fjords.
We know Fjords and that’s the only breed we will sell. In 2011, we sold 10 Fjords. Seven were consignments and 3 were our own horses. As of February, 2012 we have sold one Fjord and are working on sales for 2 other Fjords.
We treat our consignment horses as if they were our own. We look for an appropriate home that meets the seller’s requirements. No consignment horse is ever sold without the seller’s prior approval.
