Some pictures of Elin Holst and Frami frá Ketilsstöðum from the Icelandic Championship 2017. The results was far away from last years three victories but still very good. They ended on the second place in a very strong 4 gate and on the sixth pace in T2. Frami had a injury short time before the championships that we believe had a negative effect on the results.
Offsprings of Álfaklettur are beautiful, some pictures below.

I took these nice pictures within the herd the other day. Brynja and Álfhildur were having a moment of quality. Álfhildur is expecting a foal with Frami later this summer, we are very much looking forward to it.
Elin Holst riding Frami frá Ketilsstöðum won B class in the Icelandic 4 gate 8,92/9,11 in an open gæðinga class arranged by our club Sleipnir. From the pictures you can probably see why.
