Hrima and Maistjarna in training

08/12/2008Hrima in training

This spring we have broken in two of our mares, Hrima from Lukka and Maistjarna fra Tornbjerg. Both of them have been a real pleasure to work with. Hrima is already 8 years old, but has not been ridden before, because she has been used for breeding. We decided it was about time to give her a break from breeding duties this year. This would give a chance to see her riding abilities and provide us with an idea about what she might pass on to her offsprings.

New filly at Nedri Bakki

28/05/2008One week old

On the 28th of May one of our imported mares from Denmark, Eldfim frá Narfastöðum delivered a chestnut filly. This is the second filly born on our farm. We named the new arrival Eldvaka from Nedri Bakka. In Icelandic language “eld” means “fire” and “vaka” means “awake”. The filly is very much awake and she decided to keep us awake too: the long way Eldfim had to undertake from Denmark to NZ resulted in her not being able to produce milk this time, so we are bottle-feeding Eldvaka.

In order to be absolutely sure, we have taken two blood samples
