Our Hindisvík breeding

    We have a strong connection to the Hindisvík bloodline.
    It was the brother of Tobbi’s grandfather, reverend Sigurður Norland, who proceeded with the breeding of the Hindisvík horses that originally started in 1873. After he passed away it were Tobbi and his father who carried on the breeding till 1995 and had about 40 breedingmares.
    The winter of 1995 had very heavy snow and bad weather conditions. Tobbi and his father were living in Reykjavík at that time but the horses were in Hindisvík and after this winter they decided to dramatically reduce the quantity of the horses. Most of them were sold to Germany and their owners had great success with their further breeding. (You can read about that here)

    After that a few mares were kept in the breeding, and now we still have two pure bred mares of this remarkable bloodline in our breeding.


    Below you can see the horses we have now.

    Mares

    Hetja frá Mið-Kárastöðum – Hetja is one of the most in- and pure-bred Hindisvík horses. (Or horse in general!) She is pure back till 1880 and has only horses from Hindisvík in her pedigree as far back as registered.
    She is a daughter of Glæsir frá Hindisvík and Hrund, who is a daughter of Hlöðvir frá Hindisvík.

    To take an example of how inbred she is (see below) I could mention that her father, Glæsir, is a son of Hjörtur. Hjörtur is a son of Hlöðvir (like Hetja’s mother). The mother of Hlöðvir (Ör frá Hindisvík) is a full sister to the mother of Hjörtur (Fjöður frá Hindisvík) and like said before is Hlöðvir the father of Hjörtur.

    Then also Hetja’s MM and FM are fullsisters.

    Glóblesi 700 can be found 5 times in Hetjas pedigree.

    It is worth mentioning that even though Hetja is this much inbred you can not see any signs of degeneracy.

    She is above average sized, has a stable and intelligent mind and good looks.

    Hetja is a fourgaiter with high leg action. She is now in breeding.


    Yngri-Rauðka frá Hindisvík – is pure bred from the old Hindisvík bloodline back to the year 1880.

    She is a daughter of Hjörtur, son of Hlöðvir and her mother is also a daughter of Hlöðvir.

    Yngri-Rauðka is a fourgaited mare with high movements, very good basic gaits and great hind leg activity.
    She is a unique and funny personality.

    Hildur is a daughter of Aðall frá Nýjabæ (not from the Hindisvík bloodline) and Hetja frá Mið-Kárastöðum (pure bred). That makes her 50% pure bred from the old line.
