Gargandi-Snilld is back home after being with the stallion Nökkvi frá Syðra-Skörðugili. She had her sonar a few days ago and is pregnant ! :)
We chose to breed her with Nökkvi because he is one of few stallions with a rather strong Hornafjörður bloodline. And of course he is a great individual!

Nökkvi frá Syðra-Skörðugili. Knapi er Jakob Svavar Sigurðsson.

Nökkvi frá Syðra-Skörðugili, rider is Jakob Svavar Sigurðsson.

Nökkvi is a son of Aðall frá Nýjabæ who is a son of Adam frá Meðalfelli. Adam has Hornafjörður blood through his father, Hrafn frá Holtsmúla. 
The mother of Aðall frá Nýjabæ is Furða frá Nýjabæ, she is a daughter of Aldís frá Nýjabæ who is a daughter of Ófeigur frá Hvanneyri. 

Aðall frá Nýjabæ, knapi er Þórður Þorgeirsson.

Aðall frá Nýjabæ, father of Nökkvi. Rider is Þórður Þorgeirsson.

The mother of Nökkvi is Lára frá Syðra-Skörðugili. She is a daughter of Glampi frá Vatnsleysu (who is also very apprechiated on this farm =) ) and through him we get Hornafjörður blood because of his FF Hrafn frá Holtsmúla and his MMM Irpa frá Kyljuholti. In Lára's mothers pedigree you can also find a lot of Hornafjörður blood with names like Nökkvi frá Hólmi and Geysir frá Árnanesi as her great grandfathers.

Glampi frá Vatnsleysu, knapi og ræktandi er Björn Friðrik Jónsson

Nökkvi was evaluated on a breedingshow this spring with among others 9,5 for both tölt and trot and 9 for willingness and general impression. He has a riding ability score of 8,53 and conformation 8,40, which gives a total score of 8,48.

Below you can see a video of Nökkvi taken when he was compeeting in Svínavatn, only 5 years old (turning 6). That was the first time we saw him and liked it a lot. First there is a interview with his owners and the trainer and then after 2:16 you can see Nökkvi.

This spring Gargandi had a chestnut marefoal named Djörfung frá Hindisvík. Her father is our stallion Akkur frá Vatnsleysu. We had not seen her since she was rather newly born and had a nice surprise when we saw her again. She had grown and developed well and presented herself with high movements and a lot of charisma. 
The pictures below are taken of Gargandi and Djörfung during their stay here in Sæból. Now they have been released into the freedom of the Vatnsnes where they will stay with our herd till in the fall.
