Álfur exported to Norway

Next fall Álfur frá Selfossi will be residing in his new home pastures, namely the canton of Hedmarken, in Norway....

The great success of Álfur for the past few years has excelled way over and above the brightest hopes of his owner, Christinu Lund, according to the Norwegian horse magazine Islandshest forum. In spite of his current popularity here in Iceland, Álfur will be venturing towards new advendures, after the Reykjavik Landsmót in 2012. Understandably people are waiting for Álfur with great anticipation and the hearsay is that there is great demand for the usage of the horse both in Scandinavia as well as Germany.

Álfur is out of Orri frá Þúfu and Álfadís frá Selfossi who received the honor prize for offspring at the Council of horse breeding of 2011 fall meeting.  At the Landsmot last summer, Álfur was in second place in the class of stallions who have received first prize for offspring.

According to WorlFeng, there are a total of 366 registered offspring from Álfur. A total of 29 of his offspring have been assessed and eleven offspring have received 8.0 or higher as a total score.

The oldest offspring of Álfadís, Álfasteinn, traveled abroad in 2007 and has been very successful as a breeding horse there. It should be mentioned that he is the sire of Spuni frá Vesturkoti. Her offspring, who are two first prize winners, will be staying in Iceland, for a while at least. They are Gandálfur and Álfinnur.
