Höfði frá Húsavík

IS2014166640

Höfði is after Hrauna Orri-daughter and the great Korgur frá Ingólfshvoli that Artemisia Bertus has been competing on for the last years. Korgur is a great horse with even and good gates. Korgur is shown without pace in a breeding assessment, with highest mark 9,5 for general impression and slow gallop; 9 for all other abilities. Korgur’s conformation is also without a weakness; 9 for hooves; 8,5 for neck-withers-shoulders and proportions; 8 for other qualities.

In recent years Korgur has proven to be a great sport horse. 2017 Korgur and Artemisia won the Icelandic Championship in V1 and from there they went to the World Championships in Oirschot Netherlands and finished 4th in same competition. Here to the side you can see a nice video of Korgur and Artemisia in the summer 2016.

First offsprings of Korgur are starting to appear on the track and when this is written two of three offsprings shown have first price in a breeding assessment. One, Grani frá Torfunesi (8.58), became World Champion at the same tournament in Oirschot in 5 years old class in breeding assessment.

Höfði’s pedigree is from strong breeding lines in Skagafjörður. Mother of Korgur, Korga frá Ingólfshvoli, was after half siblings after Ófeigur frá Flugumýri, Geysi and Golu frá Gerðum. Father of Korgur, Leiknir frá Vakursstöðum, is after Safír frá Viðvík (Hrafn frá Holtsmúla-son) and Lyftingu frá Ysta-Mó (Hervar frá Sauðárkróki daughter). Father of Hrauna is Orri frá Þúfu (Otur frá Sauðárkróki son) and mother is Urð frá Hvassafelli after Hraunar frá Sauðárkróki which died young but gave quality horses.

Höfði looks a lot like his father Korgur; has good mane and tail, long supple neck with high withers, light built with strong legs. Höfði trots mostly but we think the tölt is not far away. He will be trained this winter and we look forward to see what may become.

Here below are a few pictures of Höfði, you can click on them to view them larger.

Hersir is after Hrauna and the big and handsome stallion Vökull frá Efri-Brú. Vökull made his first appearance at a breeding assessment 2014, then 5 years old, and we saw him later at the Landsmót in Hella later that summer. Vökull is exceptionally big, 151 cm on withers, with good conformation; 9 for proportions, and 8,5 for neck-withers-shoulders, legs, joints and hooves. Vökull is shown without pace and for other riding qualities he has highest 9.5 for general impression and 9 for tölt, trot, spirit and slow canter.

Vökull is proving himself to be a top competition horse. At Landsmót in Hólar 2016 he was in 7th place in B flokkur gæðinga and in tölt he was in 12th place which is a great success for a then 7 year old stallion. Here on the side you can see a video of Vökull in his first competition at the Fákur Reykjavík Championship 2015.

Vökull is after the honorary price stallion for offsprings, Arður frá Brautarholti (Orri frá Þúfu son) and Kjalvöru frá Efri-Brú (Kolfinnur frá Kjarnholtum daughter). In Arður’s assessment for offsprings says that he gives big horses with good neck and high withers. Most offsprings are 5-gaiters with clear beat in tölt, trot with big movements and high leg action.

Hersir was impressive from the day he was born. He was big and with a raised neck. His first year he used mainly tölt and in spring he started to trot also. Hersir will be very big and when we measured him 2 years old (2017) he was about 143 cm on the withers. Hersir reminds us of his mother Hrauna when she was young, showing all gaits and standing out of the heard with his size and handsomeness. We look forward to see him progress.
