Ylur from Langhúsum.

Meaning of name: Warmth, cosy heat.
Age: 6 years old (born 2006)
Color: Black (svart/sort/brúnn).
Level: Intermediate / experienced riders, prospect for a very easy horse/beginner horse, for the family or a trekking farm.
Registration number: IS2006158036.
Size: 140 cm (between 13.3 and 14 hands).

Has been ridden for ca. 12 months on the trail.  Has been very easy to train.  He is willing to please, courageous and has easy gaits.  Used to being ridden alone and in company, has gone trekking in a huge group (40 riders and 170 horses) and behaved superbly.  Tolts and trots easily.  The trot is groundcovering and pretty.  The tolt is smooth, in clean beat and pretty.  Listens well, has learned some basic leg yielding and turning on the forehand.  Is likely to be 5-gaited when we think about the pedigree, the father is a 5-gait Landsmot (top competition) champion, and Ylur has flying pace, it is just not trained yet.  Trailer loads easily, good on the ground (calm and easy).    Easy to catch and friendly in pasture.   Ylur is an excellent family horse prospect, and can be trained as a 4-gaiter with easy tolt (that is how he has been ridden), or as a 5-gaiter if you want to have flying pace.  Strong, big, elegant, so an excellent prospect for a farm that does tours on horse back.  Used to dogs, children and more.  If he is ridden with horses that are his friends he is super courageous and a nice horse for a novice, if he is alone he is usually courageous but needs a bit more experience to be a beginner horse when alone.  This is a good time to buy him, it will be easy to give him more experienc, but when he is a bomb proof horse with trained flying pace, he will also become more expensive.  Can be ridden by most riders.  He is now simply one of our all-round working horses, goes for trekking, we pony horses from him, pony him when needed, we use him for guests, when the young horses need older relaxed company, etc., simply always when we need a steady hard working horse.

Meaning of name: Whirlwind.
Age: 8 (born 2003)
Color: Silver dapple + blue dun (silversvart + musblack/ vindott + musblak / móvindótt + móálótt).
Level: Intermediate / experienced riders, a beginner horse prospect.
Registration number: IS2003258778
Size: Ca. 138 cm.

Has been started under saddle in a paddock, and we liked her so well that we put her soon into our band of broodmares.  She has excellent temperament, was very quick to learn and willing to please.  Soft in the mouth, stops and goes easily.  Tolts and trots, has a nice speed range and average footlift.  The tolt is smooth with clean beat, the trot is smooth and ground covering.  She is very green, so she’s available for a bargain price, but it will be easy to continue with her training, or simply use her as an excellent broodmare for breeding very good and colorful riding horses.  She’s thrown very pretty offspring with nice talents, so she’s proven herself as a broodmare.  We’re very happy with her, but have to cut down the number of broodmares a bit, so she’s for sale.  She trailer loads easily, it’s easy to clip hooves and take care of her.  She didn’t learn to be caught as a baby by her breeder, so she’s a bit shy, but her offspring are very friendly, and she’s very easy to halter if she’s cornered, and then she’s so nice and calm.  She’s been very fertile, gets in foal very easily.  She is in foal but it’s too late to export her before the foaling, so the foal isn’t included, but we can include in the sale a breeding to two stallions that we have parts in, one of them is blue dun pinto (young but of very good pedigree, a 1. prize prospect), the other one is a super highly valuated chestnut.   Feykivinda’s color is very special, she has this silvery shine all over her body, that is because the silver dapple gene is making her mane and tail silvery white and the body light, but the blue dun gene is making her body silvery blue and her head a tiny bit darker.  This is very beautiful, but makes her also a wonderful mare to throw colorful foals, because she throws both silver dapples and blue duns.

Blákápa frá Ytra-Skörðugili

Meaning of name:  Blakapa, Blue Coat (it is a name from a wonderful and old Icelandic fairy tale, Himinbjargar saga).
Age: 9 (born 2002)
Color: Black pinto (svart skäck / sort broget / brunskjott).
Level: Novice / intermediate / experienced riders.
Registration number: IS2002257552.

Very courageous and safe, likes to go, has good energy, and thinks the most fun gait and speed at all are a brisk tolt.  Is ridden a lot by my 10 year old son, and has done well with inexperienced riders, that like a courageous horse with good speed, a fast horse that will not spook.  So, she is not for every novice rider, but many novice riders absolutely love her, because she is so safe, forgiving, and stops well too.  She has very good speed range in all gaits and moves easily in all 5 gaits.  She has been used a lot as a trekking horse and horse for novice rides (teenagers), with success, but she is a super horse for somebody that is a bit experienced, loves fast horses (especiall flying pace horses) with good temperament, but wants a horse that is as bomb proof as a horse can be.  The tolt is very easy to get, she likes tolting, has a good speed range, is pacy for inexperienced riders, but if you ask her to “give” (bend a bit in the poll) the tolt clears up, will tolt easily in slow tolt if she is not ridden in it all the time (as she prefers fasterer tolt), has medium foot lift in tolt, and it is average smooth to sit on.  The trot is easy to ask for, she has very good speed range, clear beat, average footlift, average smooth to sit on, simply a very good trot.    The walk is smooth and relaxed, good walk.   She has a nice canter/gallop, has not been trained much in slow canter.  Trailer loads perfectly.  Easy to catch, and friendly in pasture.  Good on the ground, loves grooming, is used to kids, dogs and everything running under her feet, very patient with kids crawling up, saddling her etc.  She has learned some basic flexion exersises (leg yielding and such), and they do her good, but she was not started well under saddle, has a tendency to stiffen in the poll against such exersises, so they are easy to get for an experienced rider, but she is not a good lesson horse to teach beginners flexion exersises, she will try to do the exersises wrong with them.  The color is excellent, black pinto with good markings and with a funny blaze, beautiful color.  This is a big mare too, strong and used to long trekkings and hard work, she just gets better from more work.  She is though always with similar temperament, does not mind getting some days off, or going into heat, she’s a good girl.  She has good pedigree, and with all her good qualities she is a great breeding prospect, to get athletic, talented, pretty, colorful and courageous horses.  She is experienced, has been ridden for a few years, in all sorts of environments, in an area with about 20 stables (where there is traffic, not fast, but lots of it, there are people and dogs and riders everywhere, and fast traffic on a road 20 meters from the riding trail), in clinics, and all sorts of nature areas.  She is not ridden on stiff reins, we ask her to bend in the poll (neck) and then ride her on almost loose reins after that.  Can be bred before export to any stallion of your choice (paid by buyer), and we can include a stud fee (for free) to a very highly evaluated stallion that we own a share in, or to a very colorful young stallion that we can breed to this summer.   Good club competition prospect.
