I always feel bad about how seldom I have time to work on the website. But we have been very busy with the eider nesting in the spring and beginning of the summer, and now I (Heiða) am working on another farm, so I don't have so much time to take photographs. 
There is also very little happening with our horses at the moment and we can almost say that we have holiday in our horsemanship. 
Almost all of our ridden horses are sold (except ofcourse our breeding mares and stallions) and now we only have 4 horses in training. There of is one sold and will leave the country next winter. 
Now we are just waiting (with excitement!) for our "big" group of youngsters who will get old enough to be started this fall/winter. Those are the first offsprings of our Vatnsleysa stallions, Akkur and Strákur, so we are pretty excited (understatement) about how they will turn out ! :)

The following pictures have been taken in july.

Frigg is a daughter of Frá frá Hindisvík and Akkur frá Vatnsleysu. In this visit we noticed that she has a white snip on her nose. We could not see it when she was new born, only now after she has begun to change her coat.

vhringur13

Miðja frá Dynjanda, a 3 year old daughter of Strákur. Her mother was sired by Orion frá Litla-Bergi.

vhringur14

Dáð is turning 2 years old in the end of august. Big and handsome mare.

vhringur15

Skarði is a 2 year old gelding. In the background you can see the huge Kolviður, who is only 3 years old. Skarði is a son of Strákur and Kolviður is a son of Akkur.

vhringur17

It is pretty obvious who her father is ;)

vhringur18

Melkorka and Dalía, 3 year old mares.

vhringur19

3 year old mares. Munda and Melkorka are both daughters of Akkur and Hornafjörður mares from Miðfell and Dalía is a daughter of Strákur and Skráma.

vhringur21

Munda frá Miðfelli

vhringur23

Munda again

vhringur25

Our beautiful Miðja. She is unbelieveably un-photogenic. I have never got to know any horse that is as difficult to get a good shot of like she is. Which is pretty weird because she is very nice to look at when you see her "live".

vhringur28

Kolviður 3 year old son of Akkur and the Hornafjörður bloodlined Kolbrá frá Miðfelli, who is a sister to Dimma frá Miðfelli (the mother of Díva (10 for tölt) and Dimmir frá Álfhólum)

vhringur29

Hæra, has the same mother as Kolviður. Her father is Skuggi frá Dynjanda. She is one of the most pure bred Hornafjörður horses with Nökkvi frá Hólmi about 40 times in her pedigree.
Hæra is now on summer vacation and will be in training again next winter. She is a big and powerful mare and we are looking forward to start working with her again.

Kolviður

vhringur33

Hanný frá Þúfu is a inbred ancestor of Gustur frá Grund and his father Flosi frá Brunnum. Her mother and father are both sired by Gustur frá Grund and her MM is a daughter of Flosi (Gustur's father). 
Hanný was shortly broken in last winter. She is small so we decided to give her time to grow and develope until next summer. She shows very high leg action and chooses to trot.

vhringur34

Dáð daughter of Strákur and Gríma.

vhringur35

Frigg frá Hindisvík

vhringur36

Hugrún, 4 year old mare sired by Huginn frá Haga and Glæring. She was shortly broken in this winter and turned out to be a very nice and easy youngster with all gaits open.
