We are very happy and proud to anounce that we were able to buy the exceptional gæðingur, Nökkvi frá Syðra-Skörðugili.
He is well known to most horse people since he won the B-flokkur on Landsmót 2016 in Hólar and became second in B-flokkur on the next Landsmót in Reykjavík in 2018. He has been evaluated with 9,5 for tölt, trot and general impression and 9 for neck/shoulders/withers, back and croup, hooves, pace, gallop and spirit.
In his highest judgement (since 2019) he was evaluated with a total score of 8,66, including 9 for pace. No other horse that has won B-flokkur on Landsmót has achieved to score 9 for pace in a breedingshow.
Nökkvi has been trained and shown by Jakob Svavar Sigurðsson.
He is sired by Aðall frá Nýjabæ and his mother is Lára frá Syðra-Skörðugili, who is a daughter of Glampi frá Vatnsleysu.
Nökkvi has a strong Hornafjörður bloodline in his pedigree (Nökkvi 260 frá Hólmi can be found 18 times). In Nökkvi we find all the bloodlines, that we believe in for breeding them to the Hornafjörður horses. You can read more about that in the article "Breeding experiment 2011".
We are thrilled and really looking forward to welcome Nökkvi and give him the best home we can.
