It is getting colder here in Iceland, the summer is over and soon the fall will step down for winter. I found this nice picture of Álfarinn frá Syðri-Gegnishólum in the herd. Very nice to watch pictures from summertime as it is getting closer to wintertime.

Two great mares from the Ketilsstaðir breed, Framkvæmd the black one 27 years old with Honorary price for offsprings, she gave birth to 16 foals.
Katla the bay is on this picture pregnant with her first offspring, a red dun stallion with a star, born 1st of August 2018, there is a picture of him on our website from that date.
On this picture the two queens are getting some well earned goodies from Bergur. They are like all horses from Ketilsstöðum related, theire foremother is Fála frá Ketilsstöðum born 1925

It's s pleasure to publish some pictures of this horse, Álfarinn frá Syðri-Gegnishólum. We weren't lucky in the competitions this year, all the finales went to the wrong direction. The aim was to score over 7,00 in the 5 gate preliminaries but we dídn't reach that goal. We got 6,98 and A finales at the Reykjavík Championship and 7,0 and the A finales at the South Championship. Great scores as 8,5 for walk and 3 x 8,0 for pace, I lost them all because he stepped on himself in the pace. Anyhow I adore this horse and I'm looking forward to keep on training him.

Some pictures from Suðurlandsmót, were Brynja Amble Gísladóttir participated riding Goði frá Ketilsstöðum. They got fifth place in Tölt T2 and 10th place in 4 gate V1. They are improving nicely, just need a little more trust on the long rain and a bit more tempo in trot and canter, which was really nice. Fast tempo was great and they received 7,5 from all judges in the finale.

Typical Icelandic weather, these two pictures were taken in the 5 gate finales last Sunday. Changed from beautiful and very nice summer weather between the pace strides.

We took part in the Suðurlandsmót 2018, the tournament was short with a steep program. The weather was good until the last two finals. Regrettably there was some mismatch in the judicatory, it would be great if together we could find a solution for that because each and every score bears a important message to the rider. 
Mostly we did well and all our horses got into finals except for one. Thank you Geysir club for a good tournament.

Dugur frá Ketilsstöðum was breeding evaluated this week, total score was 8,12. He received 8,00 for confirmation and 8,20 for ridden abilities including 8,5 for tölt, expression and spirit. Dugur is 4 years old, dam is Djörfung and sire is Ljóni frá Ketilsstöðum. He is his mothers fifth offspring to be breeding evaluated, and the third one the get first price only four years old. We have high expectations for this guy in the future. For information, his grand mothers both have 1st price of honour for off springs, Framkvæmd and Ljónslöpp frá Ketilsstöðum and Álfadís frá Selfossi is two times his great grand mother.

Here are some pictures taken of our 1 year old horses at Ketilsstaðir, were they stay until late autumn. They have a huge area, mostly with mountain land, with a lot of trees and grass.They are moving around a lot, climbing up and running, walking down. The first picture is taken from the place I first saw them this day and another one when I got there and they had gone down the hill as the picture shows.

We got up early this morning with a long travel ahead of us, we are bringing Álfhildur to a stallion. I took these nice pictures from out of the living room window, they are of Álfhildur and her new born daughter, waking up, the little one drinking when her mother still lies....and then she got to sleep more.

This filly was born yesterday morning when these pictures were taken of her newly born. Mother is Álfhildur frá Syðri-Gegnishólum and father is the palomino "gæðingur" Spaði frá Stuðlum. Can it be that this foal has the color smokey black?

I got this enjoyable email from Páll Imsland who is our greatest expert in horse colors, I'm publishing it here since I find it very educating:
Hi Olil.
If you have been hoping for a smokey black foal from Álfhildur I'm afraid I have to disappoint you. I came by this evening and went with Elin to look at the foal.
It is apparent the the foal has ordinary black color. It can be seen mostly on the skin, edge of the eye, her nostrils and her genitals. The skin there is black which is a characteristic for black and most other colors but those that bare the palomino gene. Their skin is pink, hazel-red dun or chocolate brown and tend to be a bit dappled. On smokey black, the typical skincolor is chocolate brown or coffe brown(with a spot of cream). It does not show on this little princess.
The gray color in the eyes which Kristinn Hugason mentioned on facebook was a phiz washer, that is a so called foal grayness which is characteristic for eyes of newborn foals and usually lasts for few weeks but then fades during that time when the coloring in the eyes produce a normal eye color. Fetus development is hardly finished in the eyes and the brightness the foals get at birth affects the final outcome. Then the grayness disappears and the eyes get amber, faded black or black.
Give greetings to my kinsman in the east.
Regards, Páll

We just received these pictures of Álfaklettur frá Syðri-Gegnishólum, dam is Álfadís frá Selfossi and sire is Stáli frá Kjarri. His total score at Landsmót was 8,53 and the fifth place in the group of 5 years old stallions. He received 8,65 for confirmation, highest score was 9,0 for head and back and croup and 9,5 for proportions.
Total score for ridden abilities was 8,45, including 9,0 for pace and 8,5 for tölt, spirit and expression. This beautiful lightly built, tall and talented stallion is now in the heard, breeding. We are looking forward to start the training again as we have great hopes and expectations for him in the future.

It is really good to see this great horse on the track again with his new owners.
Simbi frá Ketilsstöðum in fifth plase in tölt children class at the Icelandic tournament. Simbi was Berglind Rós, Berg's daughter, confirmation present, he has done great with her in competitions for many years. This winter Berglind wanted to sell him since she had decided to go to college. We were so lucky that Linda Helgadóttir and her family in Keflavík bought him but this time his rider was Glódís Líf Gunnarsdóttir. Simbi is 17 years old, son of Ljónslöpp frá Ketilsstöðum and sire is Kjarkur frá Egilsstaðabæ.

Elin Holst and Frami frá Ketilsstöðum just got the second place in 4 gate at the Icelandic Championship tournament. They were also on the sixth position in Tölt T1 after the preliminaries, a finale they decided not to ride.

For us these are great results, so soon after the difficult B class finals at Landsmót. Congratulations Elin and Frami, we are very proud of you two.
