For years we have been breeding horses of the Hornafjörður bloodline.
We know the horses well and like their qualities.
It is also our belief that it will be good to have access to this bloodline later because the horses in Iceland are getting more and more related.

The main ancestors of our Hornafjörður breeding are; Ófeigur frá Hvanneyri, Flosi frá Brunnum and Gustur frá Grund.


 Our Hornafjörður mares:


Bára frá Miðfelli
F: Tígur frá Álfhólum
MF: Ófeigur frá Hvanneyri

Bára joined our herd in 2012. She was then 7 years old and not broken in, but big and handsome and shows very good trot. Because her pedigree, apperance and that we once owned her full brother, who was a very good horse, we decided to put her directly in our breeding.

Gargandi-Snilld frá Dynjanda

FF: Gustur frá Grund.
MFF: Flosi frá Brunnum.
MMF: Ófeigur frá Hvanneyri.

 

Gargandi Snilld is a high spirited fivegaited mare. She is bred by us and is a daughter of Muska frá Viðborðsseli who was a very good 5-gaited mare. Gargandi's father is Kolskeggur frá Oddhóli.
We put Gargandi in to breeding in 2014. Before that she had Ófeigur.

Gargandi's father, Kolskeggur, is a well known stallion. He is a son of Gustur frá Grund and was for years one of the best A-flokkur horses in Iceland.

 

Gargandi's mother, Muska, has a strong Hornafjörður bloodline. Her father is Kópur frá Mykjunesi, a son of Flosi frá Brunnum and her mother, Raun frá Flatey, was a sister of Skór and Fífill frá Flatey and her father was Ófeigur frá Hvanneyri.

Also worth mentioning is that Kolbrá, Hæra's mother, is a sister of Dimma frá Miðfelli, who has given great offsprings, including Díva (10 for tölt, total: 8,33) and Dimmir frá Álfhólum (total: 8,29). Kolbrá was sired by Flosi frá Brunnum.

 Breeding experiment 2011

In 2011 we rented the stallion, Akkur frá Vatnsleysu, (then only 3 years old) and bred him with Hornafjörður mares. The idea to use Akkur was born when we were looking at what stallions we could use on our Hornafjörður mares. We needed to have some new blood because they were getting to related and inbred. 
We wanted to use a stallion who had Hornafjörður blood behind him and his pedigree also had to fit well to the bloodline.
You can read more about this breeding experiment and why we chose Akkur here.
We are so satisfied with the results of this experiment that we are still breeding Akkur with mares from the Hornafjörður-bloodline.

F: Puntur frá Vatnsleysu
M: Bára frá Miðfelli

Beutiful and promising fivegaited mare.

hanna8Hanna frá Hindisvík 

Hanna is of a similar mixture as our Akkur offsprings above. Her mother is a Hornafjörður mare and her father is Puntur frá Vatnsleysu. When you look at Puntur's pedigree you can find much Hornafjörður blood. The more far you look the more you will find. For example: 
MMF Skór frá Flatey, MMMF: Nökkvi frá Hólmi, MFMMMF: Hóla Jarpur frá Hólum, MFMMMMF: Skuggi frá Bjarnanesi, MFFFMFF: Nökkvi frá Hólmi and FFFMFF: Nökkvi frá Hómi.
