About: We bought Strákur in january 2011. His parents both have first price and his full brother, Sjarmi, has been evaluated in a breeding show with 9 for tölt and trot, and 8,5 for general impression and willingness. Sjarmi was only 5 years old when he got his first 9,0 in a breeding show.
Another full brother, Seðill frá Vatnsleysu, is also a splashed white and has been evaluated with 8,30 for rideabilities.
Strákur has a unique and kind character and is easy to ride. His gaits are well seperated and clear with a great speed range. His movements are high and soft.
The colour splashed white does not inherit like "normal" pintos. Both parents have to have the gene so the offspring can have this colour. You can read more about how the colour does inherit here.
His first offsprings are born in 2012. They have been very easy to work with, and usually all gaits open right from the beginning with high movements.
Pictures of his offsprings are below on this page.
Strákur left to the USA in june 2019.
