Like has been mentioned before it was Álfur frá Selfossi who received this desirable recognition of Icelandic horse breeding here at LM2012.
As most people are aware of Álfur is the son of two honor prize winners, and those are Orri frá Þúfu and Álfadísar frá Selfossi. Already when he was 4 years old and shown by Erlinguri Erlingsson and this year he is not only receiving the Sleipnir trophy but he is also competing in the A-finals, B-class. The show with this offspring was very successful and spectators rose from their seats and cheered on this adventurous horse.
Earlier today the honor winning stallions were rewarded, and these were Markús frá Langholtsparti, Huginn frá Haga, Þóroddur frá Þóroddsstöðum and Þristur frá Feti. All of these were fantastic groups of stallions, although the group of Þóroddur received most attention. There were great anticipations for this great gæðingur, as a breeding horse, but at first many felt that there was not much to be fascinated about. Now at this tournament many of his offspring have caught attention and to mention a few one which is Hilda frá Kvistum, Lord frá Vatnsleysu and Hrynur frá Hrísdal.
