We have a small breeding of splashed white horses and are focusing on good riding abilities along with the colour.
Below you can read about how this breeding started, which individuals have been born and where we are today.
For those who want to learn more about this color you can read about it here.
How it all started
I want to start by mentioning Ómar Runólfsson. He is the key to our success in breeding those horses. Both through his good advice, education and for the great horses we got from his breeding and now build our breeding on.
From Ómar we got our first splashed white horse, when Hanný was looking for a conformation present for Heiða. That was Tengill frá Laugabóli, a red dun splashed white. More horses from Ómar followed and this collaboration has been very fortunate :)

Next came Birta frá Smyrlabjörgum. She came to our farm for her first training and we liked her so much that Heiða bought her. Birta is a red dun pinto with blue eyes (later it turned out that she is a homozygous pinto), and she has the splash gene from her mother Díana, who is a daughter of Þokki frá Bjarnanesi (he is a full brother to Snælda frá Bjarnanesi, who is among others the mother of Klerkur frá Bjarnanesi. Þokki himself was evaluated with a total score of 8,28. There of 8,46 for riding abilities as a fourgaiter including 9,5 for tölt and trot and 9 for galopp and general impression). Þokki had the splash gene.

Birta was later bred with Tengill and one year later our first splashed white foal was born. His name is Álfur frá Dynjanda. Because Álfur is both a splashed white AND a pinto he is very white. He only had one coloured spot in the end of his tail.

Gríma, is one of our splashed white breeding mares. She and her brother Tengill came to us together when they were foals. At that time she was only supposed to stay with us till she was 4 years old and we were supposed to start her first training. Things changed and she became ours. Which we are extremely happy about, since she had grown so much on us.
Gríma was very easy to start. She had very high leg action and was fivegaited with a great character.

Also from Ómar Runólfsson is Skrámur frá Hurðarbaki, a bay splashed white gelding. Skrámur turned out to be a very good horse. Hanný and Heiða took part in a few competitions on Skrámur with good results. He raised a lot of attention and was eventually sold to Switzerland, where he also was a successful competition horse. We owned his daughter Skráma, who had a few offsprings with Strákur frá Vatnsleysu before she was sold.

Strákur frá Vatnsleysu has had a big influence on our splashed white breeding. We were so lucky to get to buy him when he was 3 years old. He is a unique individual, through his joyful and kind character and is a big favorite of ours.
Fortunately we already got a few offsprings from him and would like to have many more.

Stallions and prospects:
Fönix frá Flugumýri is a bay splashed white stallion, born in 2017.
Gríma frá Laugabóli 2 has already been mentioned above. She has been a breeding mare for many years and is a delightful horse in every aspect.

Glenna frá Flugumýri (bay dun splashed white) joined our group in late february 2016. Heiða trained her for a few weeks and she turned out to be a fun and willing fivegaited mare with great tölt.
Glenna is now in our breeding.
Glenna frá Flugumýri
Auðbjörg frá Vatnsleysu is from the last year of Glampi frá Vatnsleysu offsprings, and has inherited her splash gene from him. She has the same mother as Alvör and Adda and is a full sister to Abel frá Vatnsleysu who got 9 for tölt, gallop & spirit and 8,5 for trot and form. Auðbjörg has a rather strong Hornafjörður-bloodline in her pedigree.
Flauta frá Vatnsleysu is born 2012 and a daughter of Sindri frá Vatnsleysu (F: Glampi frá Vatnsleysu) and has inherited the splashed white gene from him. She is good looking, powerful fivegaited mare. Flauta is from the old breed in Vatnsleysa and has a rather strong Hornafjörður bloodline in her pedigree.
Youngsters growing up
Þrenna shows very promising gaits and movements.
Sprengja is a chestnut splashed white mare born in 2019. She is well developed and shows tölt and trot with nice movements. Her father is Strákur frá Vatnsleysu and mother; Síðasta-Öld frá Melaleiti, who is a daughter of Glámur frá Hofsósi (7,98) and Vera frá Kópavogi (8,04)
Expected in 2021:
If all goes as planned we are expecting one splashed white foal and one with 1 spl gene in 2020.
Gríma was covered by Fönix frá Flugumýri. Because they are both splashed white we know for sure that the offspring will be too.
