Our first Icelandic Horses were imported from Denmark in the mid 1990's
They were bought from Gudanadalen Stud. Clyde selected 6 seperate pairs related by their fathers plus one unrelated filly.
Galdur the foundation stallion and 4 mares are still part of our breeding program.
We'll be adding more about each horse, offspring and legacy in the future.

Geira fra Gudenadalen:
She wasn't a highly fertile mare so only a few horses in Australia alive related to her. She did give a lot of tolt.
OTHER IMPORTED HORSES
Uncle Clyde imported a young stallion Tandri Von Roetgen from Germany in 2005. His 1/2 brother Gneisti Von Roetgen was imported to NZ at the same time by the Vinbrux family of Vindholar Southern Icelandics. He has since moved to Australia and is standing at stud at Narrawin. Tandri has been a very good stallion for us here with many lovely offspring.

Haukur fra Studlum
To further improve our herd we bought in palmino stallion Haukur fra Studlum from Iceland in 2009. He's a wonderful ambassador for the breed, with his easy going personality, ability to take him out and about and be ridden by many abilities of rider, showing off the ease of tolt.
Haukurs offspring and grandbabies are really lovely and we are so pleased to have found such an amazing boy.
Many thanks to Karen Woodrow for helping Amy to find Haukur when she visited Iceland in 2009.
He was well trained in Iceland and judged first prize.
