Sofie and Dugur has had their competition debut at the christmas competition at Egegården on decemberr 4th, and did so well. Dugur was like always a pleasure to work with and they got first place in 4-gait, as well as a second place in tölt for the couple, who will definitely compete again in the future.
The first foal of the year was not the one we expected, since Sóllilja wasn't planned to be the first to give birth. But we are definitely not complaining, since she delivered a beautiful brown mare with a tiny star. We have named her Sólveig, and she is after fantastic Viti frá Kagaðarhóli (Rid: 8,29 - Con: 8,22 - Tot: 8,26), who has 1. prize for offsprings.
We always look forward to a new season of foals. Stáltá frá Miðhjáleigu, Herdís frá Lönguhlíð and Sóllilja fra Kirstineholm are all bred with Ágústínus. Aradís frá Ketilsstöðum and Dísa frá Haukholtum are both bred with Kveikur fra Stangarlæk 1. Senna fra Kirstineholm is bred with Styrkur frá Leysingjastöðum ll. Eyja frá Kjarnholtum I is bred with Luðvík fra Lian and finally, Sólstjarna fra Kirstineholm is bred with Örvar frá Efri-Hrepp.
It went quickly with foal number 2 and 3. First,
Stáltá delivered a gigantic and longlegged blue dun stallion after Tónn fra Ólafsbergi (Rid: 8,83 - Con: 8,13 - Tot: 8,55). He has been named Sebastían. Afterwards, Aradís delivered a beautiful brown tobiano mare, who is after the stunning
Kandís fra Teland (Rid: 7,93 - Con: 8,23 - Tot: 8,04). She has been named Klara.
Now that we have entered a new year, we are of course also looking forward to a new breeding season, where we are looking forward to welcomming a lot of mares. This year, Tónn will cover by hand at home all season, while Ágústínus will cover by hand all season at Gulla in Tim.
Last foal for this year, was yet another beautiful mare who just suddenly appeared in the field. It was Eyja, who had delivered a little copy of Emma from last year. Thereby, they are both after Tónn fra Ólafsbergi (Rid: 8,83 - Con: 8,13 - Tot: 8,55). Our litlle copy has been named Ester fra Kirstineholm.
