Winterhorse Park has also become an Icelandic Horse breeding facility with the acclimation of the first Prize Stallion, Fjalar fra Bjargsholi. While we feel Fjalar is an impeccable choice for breeding, we evaluate each of our personal mares and may choose to breed to an outside stallion when, after careful consideration, find a good match.

At this point in time we have a small number of youngsters on the farm. We emphasize quality in our breeding, rather than quantity. The group of offspring sired by Fjalar show natural tolt in the fields and seem to be maturing with beautiful head and high neck placement. We have very high expectations for these young horses and will not be putting them up for sale until they are trained. We feel it’s important to Fjalar’s future reputation, along with the reputation of our farm here in the United States that his offspring are trained by professionals who are familiar with how an Icelandic Horse should move.

On occasion, however, we will have a small number of untrained horses here for sale on consignment. Please check our list of horses for sale periodically.

We also have two extremely nice fillies sired by Throstur fra Innri-Skjaljabrekka. Thokadis, daughter of second prize mare Maer fra Grafarkoti is showing beautiful conformation and gaits and Theysa, daughter of our nicely bred Ovissa fra Grafarkoti looks to posses the capabilities of the strong gaits of both her parents.

Our brood mares and youngsters are provided with the best care possible by Icelandic standards. We want them to grow up happy and still insure that they keep a healthy respect for humans. The brood mares, foals and young untrained horses have hay or forage available to them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are allowed as much time as possible in large pastures to play and run and learn from their elders in their herd. The mares are pasture bred and give birth naturally in the pastures or paddocks along side their herd mates of all ages. They learn to socialize first with horses and only minimally with humans until they are between four and five years old.
