Now we are posting pictures of horses that are in the beginning of their winter training.
They were taken in january, but I never got around to post them. So now it is better late than never =) 

Let's start with Skarði. He will turn six years old next summer and is not much educated. This will be his first winter in training. 
Skarði is a son of Strákur frá Vatnsleysu and Skráma frá Viðey

Now we finally have some offsprings of Strákur in further training and are very happy with the outcome.

Skarði is a promising fourgaiter with very good basic gaits. We recently started to ride him in tölt and he is still getting stronger and shows very promising movements. It will be interesting to see how he will develope when he gathers more strength.

Last fall we had Skarðis full sister (Stelpa) in for a short training. She is one year younger and also very promising, but a completely different type of horse. A fivegaiter that we are planning to train more next summer.

Miðja is from the first year of Strákur offsprings (2012) and will turn 7 years old next summer. She is not much trained for her age. We broke her in shortly when she was 4 years old and when she was five she had a foal.

Miðja is a sweetheart that anyone can ride. She has a very long mane and is fivegaited.
She is a daughter of Strákur and Villimey (F: Orion frá Litla Bergi), who we got loaned for one time to get an offspring from Strákur.
We were so lucky to get Miðja out of that opportunity.

 Dáð is like Skarði born in 2013 and will turn six next summer. She had a foal when she was four years old and was broken in last summer. Then she got a fall vacation and is now getting into shape. 

Dáð is also a daughter of Strákur and her mother is Gríma frá Laugabóli 2.

She is big and shows all gaits with nice movements.
