The last foal of the season has arrived! A chestnut colt with a blaze
3 foals in 3 days! (2 fillies and 1 colt)
Eldmist became a proud mum of a beautiful filly on the 28th October!
Heykir from Neđri Bakka is a relatively tall, brown-black gelding from 2011. He is a lightly-built horse, who is willing and usually seeks trot. Heykir has a very inquisitive nature and is very easy-going both when ridden, and in the stables. We wish Heykir and his new owner all the best!
All Black is a black gelding, born in spring 2011 at Neđri Bakki. He is a lightly built, medium sized horse. All Black has an easy to find, smooth and natural tölt. He has, like most Icelandic horses, an energetic walk, and his canter is strong and well defined. We wish All Black and his new owner all the best for the future!
Kvika is a forward going, chestnut mare with a star, from 2011. Kvika is a very well-mannered and willing riding horse with nerves of steel. She has an energetic walk, and is willing to work. She is displaying both tölt and trot when asked, and has developed an excellent balance and lightness on the reins. Kvika has a forward going and energetic tölt, as well as a smooth, flowing trot. Her canter is powerful and uplifted.
