The search for the right stallion of any breed can be a lengthy process. In our case, many hours were spent analyzing bloodlines and progeny of existing Icelandic stallions in North America, Germany & Denmark; at the same time, researching the foundation bloodlines in Iceland. In April 2020, we found our beautiful Skuggi.

Framför fra Arbakka
In 2018, we chose to import a beautiful grey mare from Iceland.
Hulda Gústafsdóttir of the Arbakka breeding farm in Hella, Iceland was kind enough to sell us her born and bred mare Framför. Framförs’ gaits are lovely. She shows effortless tolt. Indeed! Floating above the ground much to our pleasure, offering Piaffe at walk.
