The Foals: Áki, Brynja, Dvalinn, Efridís and Flikka frá Skógarrönd
All our foals are micro chipped, DNA tested on both parents and registered in the worldwide database for purebred Icelandic horses WorldFengur (www.worldfengur.com). They all have a FEIF passport and Certificate of Ownership from BÍ Iceland.
Áki, a colt, was born on 11 October 2008 out of our mare Hugför frá Kopavógi and our stallion Þótti frá Wetsinghe. He shows very nice movements, has an easy tölt and even showed a clear pace. He is brown black, like his mother. He has grown into a real nice teenager with lots of manes. In the mean time he has found a new home with Christine and her family near Hastings. We wish them a great time with Áki and will keep in touch!
Brynja was born on 4 December 2009 out of the same combination. Again this combination proves to be very successful! Brynja is an elegant and tall filly with nice high movements. Brynja is four gaited, brown-black and has a couple of white hairs on her head; a tiny little star. Brynja lives with her mum and her little sister Efridís; the girls group. In March 2013 Brynja moved to her new home in Christchurch and now shares the paddock with the Standard Bred and two Shetlands of Julia and Lizz. We wish her new owners all the best with beautiful Brynja and of course we will keep in touch!
On 11 December 2010 our third foal out of this combination was born; a beautiful brown-black colt with a clear star named Dvalinn. He is gelded in December 2011 and now shares the paddock with his mum and sister Efridís at the Water Gardens where we keep our mare and young horses.
Our New Years foal Efridís (a higher goddess) was born on Wednesday 4 January 2012. She is a beautiful and curious filly which shows a clear four beat tölt with very nice leg movements. Her colour is brown black with a tiny star. She loves racing around with her mum and big brother Dvalinn in the large paddock. Efridís has followed our first born Áki to live with Christine and her family in Hastings. She has just been started and doing Christine proud!
On 28 September our fifth foal out of the same combination was born; a filly which we named Flikka (Flihk-ka). Again a real beauty, brown black and this time with a big star. She happily tölts, walks and canters with her mum Hugför and now also has company of the new colt Dökkvi. Below a picture of Flikka showing off in tölt. Flikka now lives with Carolyn and family in Twizel and shares the paddock with half brother Reykir (same Sire, our stallionÞótti frá Wetsinghe).
Our 6th foal was born on 26 November 2014: Gandálfur. A very lively colt out of the new combination Dökkvi from Haldane Icelandic Horses and our mare Hugför. It is the first foal for young Dökkvi and we are very happy with this beautiful colt out of him! Below some pictures of Gandálfur. In the mean time he is gelded and grown into a handsome yearling. He grazes together with his mum in Otaua on a huge paddock with sea view. His mum is in foal again to Dökkvi and we expect the foal late 2016.
