Langhús is a horse farm where horses are bred, trained, raised and traded. We have around 40 horses at all ages. Our stable can accomodate 16 horses. All our broodmares are trained, most of them are shown and evaluated. We breed about 6-8 mares per year. Our horses have the A-breeders certification, that is to say, the mares get full papers for the foals from the stallion caretakers after ultrasound, our foals are marked with microchips, and we are thorough about papers, animal health and welfare, and taking excellent care of our horses.
Horses, horse training, and loving animals in general, is a big interest for us all in the family.
We also have a dairy farm at Langhús, a typical family-size farm in Iceland, with around 40 Icelandic dairy cows and some young calves and cows being raised for the future. There are on the farm also 16 Icelandic sheep and their lambs, 2 Icelandic sheepdogs, a couple of bunnies, a budgie, and aquariums.
The farm is run with the goal of being very considerate to the nature, animal welfare, and for animals getting a life where they can have their behaviour needs fulfilled. We want to live with the nature, the farm animals and the wild animals, not exploit them. The farm animals stay outside on pasture for for 6-12 months per year and enjoy their freedom and natural behavior. We use no pesticides or insecticides, and have huge areas on our farm with open natural land where birds are protected, and can nest and raise their babies.
