French Trotter mare Joie du Tremblay. French Trotter originates from the Norman and Anglo-Norman stock that was crossed with Norfolk Roadsters and TB's. It has been very popular in harness racing and still is very successful. French Trotters are bred also for monte, so they are sometimes bigger and stronger than Standardbreds. Chestnut is quite common color, but bays are frequent, too. Blacks are rare.
