Spuni frá Vesturkoti received by far the highest assessment of 5 year old stallions at the Sörlastaðir county show. He received a total score of 8.66 for conformation 8.43 and presence and a score of 8.82 for capacity, 9.5 for pace, spirit and temperament.
This assessment is the third highest one received by a 5 year old stallion, the two higher ones received by Þóroddur frá Þóroddsstöðum from the year 2004 and Oliver frá Kvistum from 2009. There is no surprice that requests for usage for mares comes as no surprice and the demand is enormous. And indeed, as Hulda Finnsdóttir in Vesturkot says that the telephone has not stopped ringing since the horse was shown last week.
“As a foal, already Spuni´s conduct was very special. He was never afraid of anything, on the contrary, he was curious and came to us in the pasture and seemed to be wondering about things" says Hulda Finnsdóttir inVesturkot. This special temperament of him as a foal was how Spuni received the surname "Specialist".
“His temperament is still fantastic. When he was being trained he was quick to learn. His gaits are very good and he started tölting immediately and just did whatever he was asked to do. In fact is totally is a specialist!" says Hulda, but Ólafur Brynjar Ásgeirsson horse trainer in Vesturkot has been the caretaker of the horse from the beginning of his traning.
Already a total of thirteen offspring have been born from Spuni and another twenty are being expected this spring. “For example one of our best mares, Líf frá Þúfu, is expecting his foal this spring and we are really excited to see what comes out of this copulation" says Hulda.
Spuni will be in Sandhólaferja in service for mares. The first period is from June 1st to June 15th and the next on is from July 12th to August 20th.
The prize for the mares is Ikr 50.000 including tax. As the horse will be situated in Sandhólaferja the owner of the mare has to pay a total of Ikr 50.000 for the insimination to the vet in Sandhólaferja and included in the fee is the insemination, the maintenance of the mare and unlimited sonar scna for the mare. This means that the owners of the mares do not have to have their mares sconar scaned before they come to Sandhólaferj as they are offered a sonar scan there. Th emares will then be taken care of the Sandhólaferja staff.
