Vídalín is such a good father ...

Vídalín was at Stóra-Vatnsskarði in the north of Iceland serving mares when he was 3 years old in 2007. The outcome of this 2008 were 11 in total, 7 girls and 4 guys, and without hesitation they showed us what they're made of: pretty (and) powerful. The latest video footage of them has been filmed in late June of 2010 when they were 2 years old. Now they are 3y and I am starting to ride the first couple of them. It is a privilege to have owned and trained a stallion such as Vídalín and even more exiting to start with his first offspring now. Besides their elegant and beautiful appearance: long legs, very good neck and proportions, they have lots of energy. Big movements mostly five-gaited with endless tölt, good elastic trot and very good hindquarter movements. They use their neck really well and are quite something for the eye. Very polite and sensitive they learn fast and are very cooperative. On this page you will also find some pictures of the 2010 offspring - sit back and enjoy the ride!


Tónn frá Stora-Vatnsskarði IS2008157651

Tónn is a 4 year old son of Vídalín who is owned by Katrin Sheehan and currently in training in Iceland. He is adorable with lots of natural tolt with high movements and a strongly built confirmation. His charakter is flawless and he is eager to do everything for the rider. We are exited how Tónn will develop this year with his trainer Christina Lund.

 

 

 

Hnota frá Stóra-Vatnsskarði - only 3 years old!

Elegance and flow, lots of forward motion - a true Gæðingur. Words are not enough to describe the joy and pride we felt when we discovered how beautifully this yellow dun mare, born in 2008, has turned out to be. Hnota is amazing and any further description in writing would only take away from the pleasure of watching her "perform". Take a closer look! Hnota will be in the care and training of her owner Nicki Pfau in Iceland this winter and we are very exited how things will turn out with her next spring.

Vídalín: Offspring for sale

Our stallion has truly blessed us with a great variety of foals which he "created" with those precious mares at Stóra-Vatnsskarð. Only a few of the young horses of 2008 and 2011 are still available ... they are going fast and are really popular e.g. in Denmark, Germany and the United States. You might want to check out the following video clip(s) of our prospective sports and breeding horses and then get in touch with us. Now is a fabulous time to claim your part of breeding history!

The two-year-olds: June, 2010

Just to share with you some vivid impressions of why exactly we love to heap so much praise on Vídalin, here is a clip shot in late June of 2010 during our visit to Stóra-Vatnsskarð. Of course, it's relatively easy to talk highly about "Viddi" himself with all those great marks he has received. As far as breeding is concerned, though, we firmly believe that the value of a stallion can only be proven through his offspring. You be the judge!

Encore une fois ...

Oops, we did it again! Indeed, we have brought Vídalín back to his homely Skagafjörður surroundings, and with some help from Mother Nature and the Nordic Gods, the "class of 2011" will once again be a success for the stallion and for us who care so much. Here's some exciting footage of Viddi's homecoming ...

Please meet Hnota!

One of the most spectacular among Vídalín's offspring, as you may already have witnessed in her video above ...

And if you still can't get enough of her ...

... here she goes again. As stated before, please do not hesitate to contact us for your own piece of "Viddi's legacy".

"V" as in ... Valentina frá Selfossi

Here's another excellent sample of Vídalín's strength as a stallion alongside Valentina's mother, Viska frá Holtsmúla. This young mare is 3 years old now, and she already shows us every single day what great promise lies within her spirit and gaits. Valentína will be trained by her owner Nicki Pfau in Iceland this winter.

More impressions from 2010

All these current pictures were taken at Stóra-Vatnsskarð in June of 2010, and we couldn't have been happier with our "folöld"!

Swingin' along ...

... all these Viddi kids are simply stunning when it comes to their suppleness, agility and willingness to express their immense potential when it comes to their gaits. Impressive from A-Z.

Offspring from 2008

What catches the eye right away is the beautiful color variety the group has to offer as may be seen in the video and the pictures below. They all have a lot of clear and fluent natural tolt, good trot and once in a while they´ll already let you know "what they are made of", speeding up in a powerful pace. The foals are all blessed with a pretty stature and they carry themselves very well.

We were so happy ...

... to see that Vídalín is apparantly delivering what we had hoped for to his offspring and because we were so thrilled with the result we decided right away to have the stallion at Stóra-Vatnsskarð once again for the second half of the summer 2010. All of Vídalín's foals are already registered in WorldFengur and can be found under his offspring. Most of them are also for sale - please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

Please scroll down for a great variety of current photographs from July, 2009. Interested in any of the horses in those pics? Just get in touch with us, and we'll see what we can do ...!

Hnota - one of Vídalín's Finest!

Once again: just click away and let your imagination guide you with the great potential of what could very soon be your own "Mini-Vídalín"!

Enjoy the pics ... July, 2009
