Kolfinna frá Tvennu
Kolfinna is a beautiful young black mare with a cute star and snip. Currently in Iceland, she is waiting to be bred this summer before coming home to Sand Meadow. We very excited! Though we weren't looking for another mare, Kolfinna's super sweet and friendly character, combined with her talents, excellent training, and outstanding pedigree made her impossible to resist!
Kolfinna has strong, proven bloodlines behind her. Kolfinna is a daugher of the famous stallion, Krákur frá Blesastõðum 1A. Krákur was evaluated first prize overall, including a score of 9.5 for his stunning tolt. Krákur also has received the award of 1st prize for the quality of his offspring. Kolfinna's grandsire on her father's side is the famous Tõfri frá Kjartansstõðum, also evaluated first prize with a 9.5 for tolt. Both Krákur and Tõfri are well known for their beautiful elegance and high movements. Kolfinna's mother is the talented first prize mare, Hróðný frá Blesastõðum 1A. Her grandsire on her mother's side is the famous honor prize stallion, Hróður frá Refsstõðum. These are exciting genetics that make Kolfinna an interesting breeding mare.
Kolfinna was started by top trainer Sara Sigurbjörnsdóttir, who provided Kolfinna with an excellent foundation. Even after only a few months of training Kolfinna shows lots of tolt with good movements. But best of all she has an easy character and is very willing to please. We are looking forward to riding her once she arrives in the US!
But instead of bringing Kolfinna over right away, we have decided jump for the opportunity to breed her to a top stallion in Iceland. We have chosen the great five gaited stallion, Eldur frá Torfunesi. Eldur himself has been evaluated first prize with an amazing total score of 8.6 overall, which includes a 9 for tolt, 9.5 for trot, 9 for spirt, 9 for general impression, 9 for neck/withers/shoulders, 9 for legs, and a perfect 10 for mane and tail. He has also been awarded first prize for the quality of his offspring. Best of all he has an amazing character which is a requirement for all our breeding horses. We look forward to a great 2021 foal!
