We realized a long time ago that this generously talented mare has extra ordinary breeding skills, but what we need to keep fokusing on, is the size and confirmation. Taking a closer look at Djörfung's breeding lines, what is special is that she is the third matrilineal mare to receive Honorary Price for off springs. Her mother Framkvæmd received the Honorary Price in 2012 and her grandmother Hugmynd frá Ketilsstöðum whom many remember for her outstanding performance in A-flokk ( icelandic 5 gate ) at Landsmót 1990, received her honorary award for offsprings at Landsmót in Reykjavik 2000.
Father of Djörfung, Álfasteinn frá Selfossi, reached the requirements for Honorary Prize only 10 years old, his father Keilir frá Miðsitju, received The Honorary Price at Landsmót 2006 and Álfastein's mother, Álfadís frá Selfossi ,received The Honorary Price for offspring in 2011.
