Now we offer two pinto young mares for sale ! Both of these mares have good pedigree and of course nice color. First we introduce we Kría. She is only 4 years old but she is 144cm stick measure ! She has strong looking legs with massive hoof hair. Kría is easy in every handle and she has already gotten shoes. She is halter trained and shows good leg action. These photos were taken yesterday. Great price and opportunity ! Also possible to put her to a stallion both here at home or of your own choice. We have young Spuni son here which is very promising and would make a perfect match for her !
Than there is Blóma born 2009 ridden. Most likely 5 gated but chooses trot but knows tölt. She has a 1.prize father and her mother was trained a bit under the saddle. Blóma might also give only pinto offspring’s because of her spceial dots all over her body. Both eyes are blue.
Last Saturday our breeding/horse club, Framfari held his yearly fun competition we call now Bjargarleikarnir. Anna Kristín and Auður Karen competed in children’s class on Bleikur and Hróðný and Anna came in second place and Auður Karen in third place. Auðbjörn did not make it in the top five with Djarfur and Móna. Auður Karen than decided to try out 100m pace with Maren and that was great first try for them but they were in second place with the time 10.79 and she was competing with quite many with a lot of experience and much older as well, her father was in 5th place with my Aría.

Finally the last foal is born and it was a stallion foal from Meiriháttar and Kjarkur from Skriða. María is the breeder and owner and his name is Kjarni.
So 10 foals ( we sold one pregnant mare ) were born here this year and 7 mares and 2 stallion foals. Eight of the foals belong to us. All of our mares are now with stallion and we are expecting 7 foals next year if all goes as planned. Magdalena went to Konsert from Hofi and has been sonar tested pregnant and than the other mares are with the young Spuni son, Bátur from Brúnum.
Last Wednesday we drove to Egilsstaðir and staid there until yesterday. Anna Kristín were competing at Fjórðungsmót Austurlands in Tölt ( children’s class ) and gæðingakeppni ( children’s class ) and she did well with her horse Bleikur which she has taken care of training all by herself for few years now. They can do better with more practice in competitions. Anna is also very shy and with more experience we hope that it will boost up her confidence. I took some photos of her and here are some.
Check out this great mare Snörp from Hólakoti. She is turning 6 years old now in July. Snörp was shown in breeding show in June and got 8.03 for confirmation and 7.77 for riding ( 4 gated ) and total 7.88. she got for example 8.5 for neck, tölt, spirit, gallop and walk. If you click on her name you can see video of her at the breeding show.
Now I have added out few new riding photos of young Dáð. She is turning 5 years old and is after Hófur from Varmalæk and Stilling from Sölvholt. If you click on her name you can see few more photos.
The weather was quite fantastic today and has been really nice this past week. I visited the young Spuni son we have here with our mares and I could not resist taking photos of these two, Hátíð and her daughter Hugmynd after Kjarkur from Skriða.
Næla and her daughter Fylking also after Kjarkur wanted some as well and than one of the stallion had to follow.
Both París and Sóldís are sold now ! They will leave Iceland in September or so. We wish the new owner all the best.
Than we found out two days ago that Vala were not pregnant but she was sonar tested in September with small fetus and we were not expecting foal from her before August but than there is no foal, so she is now with the Spuni son Bátur from Brúnum. We have now castrated few of our stallions for example Vala son Vandi.
IF YOU WANT YOUR OWN MOLI DAUGHTER, LINSA IS NEW ON OUR SALE LIST ! CONTACT US FOR FURTHER INFO.
Last weekend Anna Kristín took part in gæðingakeppni Léttis at Akureyri on her horse Bleikur. They came in 3rd place before the finals and did better than and ended in second place. Here are some photos taken in the finals.
Our newest foal is the mare foal Hugmynd after the amazing stallion Kjarkur from Skriða 8.30 and Hátíð from Hóli 7.95
Than last but not least Vaka is sold and will go to Germany in September. We wish the new owner all the best.
Early in June Snörp from Hólakot was shown in a breeding show at Akureyri. Jón Björn bpught Snörp when she was 3 years old and he is very happy with his mare. Snörp got 8.03 for confirmation and 7.77 for riding as a 4 gaiter and 7.88 in total score. Snörp is a very good mare for sport competitions with her equally good gates. The photos are taken at the breeding show and the rider was Agnar Þór and than yesterday when Anna Kristín was having fun with her.
Last night Eva gave birth to this lovely mare after Markús from Langholtspartur, breeder and owner is Natalie.
The name is Eydís from Gásum. Magdalena is now with Konsert from Hofi and Sveifla, Næla, Þrístikla and París are all with the Spuni son Bátur from Brúnum. Bátur is here at Gásum and will meet few other mares belonging to us and others.
I have no words for the amazing welcoming and hospitality Nadine and her husband Michael showed us at their home for one week in Switzerland. They drove us around and invited us for lunch on different restaurant and as well at their home. We saw horses and rode few as well. We visited Europa Park in Germany for one day and the weather was amazing the whole time as well. We just hope that when they visit us we can do the same for them. Than of course our dear friend Natalie and her boyfriend were also super nice and spend time with us and invited us for dinner and trip to the mountain. Here are photos that Nadine took and send me.
Yes 3 more foals are born now and two of them belongs to us. Magdalena gave us a black stallion foal which has gotten the name Markús and Næla gave us black mare foal yesterday morning whom Auðbjörn named Fylking. I haven’t taken any photos of Fylking yet but soon.
I took new photos of Sigurdís the other day and also Brá.
And one of the two sisters Þrístikla and Sveifla with their sisters Brá and Sigurdís.
And this owl was outside Auður bedroom window one evening when she was going to bed.
We are soon going to Switzerland to visit our dear friends Natalie, Nadine and families and we will stay for 1 week. Three sheep’s are still left to give birth and 5 mares. Next one in line will most likely be Hátíð and than Rut. This mare her below is Líf from Sandá. Auðbjörn gave her to me at my last birthday ( august 2014 ) and she arrived to us only few days ago. Love her and her color !
Now most of our horses are from Gásir ! We have moved and changed our breeding name into Gásir from Hólakot but our page is still holakot.net It will take me some time to change it on our page but all in good time right will be right.
