The third foal of the year, was also the first stallion - a big beautiful chestnut dun tobiano. Kjarval is after Stáltá, who we brought down from Iceland in 2019 and who is after Stáli frá Kjarri, who is assessed with (Rid: 9,09 - Con: 8,26 - Tot: 8,76), and has honorprize for offsprings. Unfortunately, she lost the foal she was carrying back then, so therefore we are extra excited that everything went well now. Kjarval is after Örvar frá Efri-Hrepp, who is assessed with (Rid: 8,66 - Con: 8,54 - Tot: 8,61). We are very excited to follow his development.
14 days before time Sóllilja chose to deliver a beautiful bay mare foal, that we have named Sóley in honor of her grandmother, who was a great breeding mare. Sóley is after Ágústínus frá Melaleiti (Rid: 8,93 - Con: 8,13 - Tot: 8,61), and FF is Kolfinnur frá Kjarnholtum I (Rid: 8,84 - Con: 8,05 - Tot: 8,45), who has honorprize for offsprings. On the mothers side MF is our own Leiknir fra Søtofte (Rid: 8,57 - Con: 8,03 - Tot: 8,35). It will be exciting to work with her in some years time, when we have known so many of the horses in her family tree.
Eventhough it can be hard to sell horses, it is a part of life here at the farm. Over the last few months, we have sold beautiful Hannibal fra Kirstineholm from 2020 after Snotra frá Hellu and Ágústínus frá Melaleiti. Our trainer Mathilde, has chosen to buy Arion fra Kirstineholm after Kómeta frá Snjallsteinshöfða 2 and Ágústínus frá Melaleiti, and we are excited to follow them on their journey. Finally, we have sold the riding mare Frekja fra Kollerup. We wish the new owners all the best, and we look forward to follow them from a distance.
May 1st this long awaited mare foal was born. Maja is after Dísa frá Haukholtum (Rid: 8,10 - Con: 8,03 - Tot: 8,07), who we bred in Iceland, when we got the opportunity to use the super mare Elding frá Haukholtum (Rid: 8,77 - Con: 8,24 - Tot: 8,56), who has honorprize for offsprings. Her father is Ágústínus frá Melaleiti (Rid: 8,93 - Con: 8,13 -Tot: 8,61), who has 1. prize for offsprings.

Ágústínus has gone on a working holiday - this year he covers by hand at Jespersgaarde in Dronninglund all season from april 1st till october. You find all information about Ágústínus along with his contract right here - and you can see more of Jespesgaarde herr.

Now that Mathilde has started school again, it is great that all the young horses are in place. The next one in line will be Karl, who is after Kómeta frá Snjallsteinshöfða and Tónn fra Ólafsbergi (Rid: 8,83 - Con: 8,13 - Tot: 8,55). Thereby Karl is the full brother of Viktor fra Kirstineholm (Rid: 8,49 - Con: 8,16 - Tot: 8,36) and Kasper fra Kirstineholm, who scored 8,25 in conformation. Karl is like all the other foals after Kómeta incredible tall and has been so since he wal veryt young. We are very excited to see how he will develop.
