Glæsir frá Hindisvík is the last living pure bred stallion from the old Hindisvík bloodline. One can be pretty certain that no other Icelandic stallion has such long history of bloodline breeding behind him. Glæsir is pure bred from Hindisvík back to the 19th century (around 1880). This makes Glæsir very unrelated to most of the horses living in Iceland today.
Glæsir is a dark chestnut with blaze and one fetlock. He is born in 1996 and will turn 20 years old this summer.
Tobbi sold Glæsir's mother when she was pregant and Glæsir was born in the following summer. The buyer was Loftur in Ásbjarnarstaðir, who still owns Glæsir. 
Glæsir was ridden a little when he was young and got a lot of attention for his unusual movements.

The picture above is taken in early summer 2015 when Glæsir had recently been put to his mares. There he is 19 years old and we think he has an unusually thin neck and light & dry building for such a mature stallion.

For the last years (especially after moving to the north and being so close to him) we have used Glæsir quite much. We are very fond of our youngsters sired by him. The thing they all have in common is their unique trot. Big steps, high movements and well active hind legs.
Below you can see some pictures of his offsprings that we have owned.
