About Jutland Horses
Jutland horses originate from Denmark. They have beenrnrumored to have given the English Suffolk Punch horses their own history, butrnmany feel it may be the other way around. The Suffolk breed is considered thernlatter of the two, but also a more refined version. One stallion in particularrnnamed Oppenheim LXII was one of the Suffolk Punch variations that went on to bernimported to Denmark. Just six generations later down the line, the horse AldruprnMenkedal was given the label as being the founder of the breed. Virtually allrnJutland horses can be linked to the Hovding and the Prins of Jylland and theirrntwo sons. In 1928, Jutland horses were traded to buy the Copenhagen area breweryrncalled Carlsberg. During those times, the brewery had a stock of around twornhundred Jutland horses. However, as much as the breed was beloved in theirrntime, currently they are few and far between. The mere twenty or so that arernleft behind have been used for horse shows, in fairs and in demonstrationsrnaround Europe.
