SPRING ISSUE HERALD
Dear NFHR members and fellow Fjord enthusiasts,
You will notice the Spring Herald is being published in a different format. The Herald Committee and the Board of Directors had strategic discussions about the current situation we are all experiencing and how to be viable for the future. After much deliberation and determining what is best for the Registry and our members, we decided to produce the Spring Herald in an online format. This is a one-time only change and we believe this will allow us to be financially responsible to support future Heralds.
Please enjoy the Spring issue! You will notice we can offer features, such as live hyperlinks, which we are not able to offer it in a printed version. A special thank you also goes out to all the ad supporters. You made this issue extra special with your support. We will return to the standard print format for the Summer issue.

NEW EVALUATION HANDBOOK NOW AVAILABLE
The improved Evaluation Program documents are now available. Sections 1-3 and 5-6 have been completed. Section 4 (performance) is still under review and will be posted in the coming months. The largest change is the linear scoring system which will allow a better understanding of each individual horse. The next step is for NFHR to hold or encourage clinics around the country to educate Fjord owners about the value of the new system. As soon as possible we will begin to hold official Evaluations again.

We had no new candidates step up for our 2020 Board of Directors election. All three board members whose terms are up have agreed to another term, so there will not be an election this year. The NFHR would like to thank returning members Curtis Pierce, Jessica Reuterskiold and Kay Schwink for their dedication to the NFHR.
