We have been waiting for years to begin to train our Strákur offsprings. 
Now the oldest are getting old enough to get started and recently we got the opportunity to take home Dalía and Miðja. They were home for a few days and everything went very smoothly. The young mares chose both tölt and trot under the rider with nice movements and were very easy to ride. Now they have been released again and will get a break till this winter or next summer. 
In 2012 we got unusually many foals, and now we have 9 left that will start their training with us. What makes it even more exciting is that they are the first offsprings of our stallions, Strákur and Akkur. Three are after Strákur and the rest after Akkur.
It will be an interesting winter ! :)

The mane is growing back. Last year we had to cut most of it of because it was so tangled when she came back from her summer in the mountain.

Sæli has been a very handy assistant with starting the young horses.
