Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Dole Gudbrandsdal, D lahest or Dole is a draft-type horse from Norway. There are two subtypes of the breed, the Dole Gudbrandsdal and the Dole Trotter, with the former being used mainly for heavy draft and farm work and the latter for harness racing. The Dole is thought to have originated in the Gudbrandsdal Valley, an area connecting the Oslo region with the North Sea coast. It is likely that the Dole is in part a descendant of the Friesian, as the two breeds are similar in conformation, and the Frisian people were known traders in the area between 400 and 800 AD. The Dole Gudbrandsdal closely resembles the English Dales Pony and Fell Pony, and the two breeds probably share similar origins.show more
