Stallions with high assessments now abroad

Every year, many magnificent breeding horses with high assessment are shipped out of the country. Many of them we regret, but at the same time hoping that they will prove to be favorable to the Icelandic horse stock abroad. So far this year, a total of 55 first prize horses have been transported abroad.

Among those are young stars like Oliver frá Kvistum (overall score 8.67), Hnokki frá Fellskoti (overall score 8.52), Sæfari frá Hákoti (overall score 8.50) and Kjarni frá Auðsholtshjáleigu (overall score 8.50). Also there are some older breeding horses which have been transported to new areas on the mainland. Illingur frá Tóftum (overall score 8.73) is presently in Sweden, Keilir frá Miðsitju (overall score 8.63) has been transported to the Netherlands along with Lúðvík frá Feti (overall score 8.51). Straumur frá Sauðárkróki (overall score 8.37) has arrived to his new owners in Sweden, Suðri frá Holtsmúla 1 (overall score 8.31) has gone to Germany and Kjarkur frá Egilsstaðabæ (overall score 8.28) went to Sweden in the beginning of this year.

Also, the following horses have all been transported abroad: Tónn frá Ólafsbergi (overall score 8.55), Grásteinn frá Brekku, Fljótsdal (overall score 8.54) and Máttur frá Torfunesi (overall score 8.52) and Vár frá Vestra-Fíflholti (overall score 8.50). The highest assessed mare transported abroad is Trópí frá Hnjúki (overall score 8.37) which was sent to Switzerland last September. Gína frá Árbæ (overall score 8.33) went to Denmark in the beginning of the year and as most people are aware, Stakkavík frá Feti (overall score 8.31) stayed in Switzerland after the World Championship.

In the chart here below, twenty of the highest assessed breeding horses can be viewed. Those horses will be tested and checked out away from their original country in the future.
