The first foal of the year


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.

Sold horses


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.

Foal nr. 4


We are very excited about this incredible guy. Sólstjarna is a very special mare after our previous breeding mare Sóley frá Snjallsteinshöfða 2  (Rid: 7,99 - Con: 8,01 - Tot: 8,00) and our Tónn frá Ólafsbergi (Rid: 8,83 - Con: 8,13 - Tot: 8,55). A mare with nice separeted gaits and a great temper, and a first class breeding assessment with (Rid: 8,00 - Con: 8,09 - Tot: 8,04) - and therefore, just the type of mare we wish to breed with. Henry is after Héðinn frá Feti, who is assessed with (Rid: 8,80 - Byg: 8,33 - Tot: 8,62) and has 1. prize for offsprings. FF is Klettur frá Hvammi (Rid: 8,54 - Con: 8,43 - Tot: 8,49). We hope that Henry will end up grey, and become just as beautiful as his father.

Foal nr. 2


She went a bit over time, but finally Aradís delivered her first  foal - a beautiful chestnut tobiano mare foal. Just like we dreamed about! The beautiful little lady has been named Astrid. She is after Kraftur fra Yggdrasil (Rid: 8,44 - Con: 7,96 - Tot: 8,25) and FF is Funi frá Vindási (Rid: 8,65 - Con: 8,08 - Tot: 8,42). We bought Aradís from Bergur Jónsson, when she was 3 years old, based on her family tree and a few photos. All the way through her training, breeding assessment and the few competitions she attended, she has been a pure joy to work with, and we are looking forward to even more offsprings from her and to start working with this lovely lady in a few years time.

Next young horse


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.
