Sold Over the Years
The following is a small sample of the horses we have sold over the
years. We place great importance on a proper match that will bring joy to both owner and horse
for years to come. The horses we have imported and bred have gone on to be foundation breeding horses,
performance horses, pleasure trail horses, and treasured companions to their new owners. Placement is always more
important to us than profit.
Fenja from Rocking R
Fenja is a fun, forward five gaited mare with personality plus. So, she needed an owner just as spunky and full
of life as she – and Fenja found her match in Deb Callaway of Naples, NY! Deb has been and admirer of the breed for
some time and was looking for just the right trail partner to zip around the many area trails. We’re sure these two
will have lots of fun together for many years to come. Congratulations Deb!
Freyja from Sand Meadow
Freyja was the first foal to be born on our Mendon, NY farm. We are extremely proud of how this cute Kalman
daughter grew up to be such a beautiful and elegant mare. With an excellent calm and steady character, great work
ethic, and 4 clear gaits, Freyja is the total package. Congratulations to Doug and Alisha Schwarz of Glastonbury,
CT on their purchase of this stunning mare!
Kvistur from Blasted Rock
Kvistur was made to be a great trail horse. Dependable from the start, Kvistur is a rock on the trails and
enjoys working hard for his rider. He is also keen on ponying younger horses and showing them the ropes. He is
already so solid that we can only imagine what a superstar he will be as he continues to mature. Congratulations
to Nancy Green of South Hill, VA for adding Kvistur to her growing herd of Icelandics!
Sailor from Rhythmhill

Sailor is an absolutely adorable chestnut gelding with a star and a bright flaxen mane and tail. He is trained to
both ride and drive and is a super smooth ride. Though small in stature Sailor is the type of horse that really grows
with a rider on board and gives a very proud appearance. He has had a lot of experience with all levels of riders,
including small children and timid adults, and is an excellent confidence builder. 100% safe and unflappable, Sailor
still has plenty of pep and loves to head out on the trails. Congratulations to Kerri Sher of Bloomfield, NY. Happy
trails to you both!
Múfasa frá Saurbæ
The largest Icelandic horse in the world, Múfasa also has a giant heart to match. Rarely have we
come across such a sweet and polite horse as he. He gave everything his all and was a super fun ride out on the trail.
He was a pleasure to have in the stable and is already missed. Congratulations to a wonderful owner in NC for her purchase of this very special horse!
Kitla from Rhythmhill & Aska from Sand Meadow
It’s always nice when two of our horses can go to one great home. A five gaited school master
and pace Queen, Kitla brings joy to all that ride her with her exceptional work ethic and good humor. Aska, an
extremely promising black filly out of Gima frá Ytra-Dalsgerði by
Kalman frá Lækjamóti – two exceptional first prize horses – hopes to follow in her “hoofsteps”.
Congratulations to Nancy Green of South Hill, VA on her purchase of both these lovely girls!
Dagný frá Árbakka
Dagný is a stunningly beautiful silver dapple mare that is trained to both ride and drive. As bombproof as they
come, she is a fantastic trail horse. Congratulations to Annie Shields and Pat York of Rome, Georgia on their
purchase of Dagný! As Annie has been involved with Icelandics for over 50 years we know Dagný will be in excellent
hands in a wonderful home.
Sóla from Sand Meadow
Sóla is an extremely beautiful young mare the daughter of our stallion, Kalman frá
Lækjamóti out of the 1st prize mare Hera frá Hofi. Even at a young age Sóla turned heads for her elegant
and correct conformation. Not only is she pretty on the outside, but she has an amazing friendly and bold
character. Her large gaits also do not disappoint. This talented young mare clearly has exciting achievements
ahead of her as a performance horse and breeding mare. Congratulations to Christopher and Nathaly Jones of
Tuskast Icelandic Horse Farm located in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada!
Roðadís from Sand Meadow

Roðadís was the first foal born at Sand Meadow Farm and we could not be more proud of her. She was
conceived in Iceland, imported in utero, and born at Sand Meadow farm in 2001. A daughter of the 1st prize
powerhouse Garpur frá Auðsholtshjáleigu (1st prize for offspring) out of the 1st prize mare Hera frá Hofi. Roðadís
has it in her genes to be a great mare and she did not disappoint. At a young age she achieved a 1st prize score
for conformation and a solid 2nd prize overall. She was also successful in the show ring. On the trail she is
all fire and energy - the ultimate ride for the experienced rider. The sky is really the limit for this ultra
talented mare. Congratulations to Lisi Ohm of Vindsdalur
Icelandic Horse Farm on her purchase of Roðadís. We feel this combination is a dynamic team that has great
things ahead of them and we can’t wait to hear of their accomplishments.
Perla frá Melabergi
Perla came to us late in life, but we were very lucky to have enjoyed her company. Confident and wise,
Perla was a joy to have around. A strongly five gaited mare Perla had the stamina and energy to take you on
the trails all day, up the mountain and back. Perla is the very first Icelandic horse for her new owner Juli
Cole of Meant to be Farm in New Castle, PA.

Blær is a charming chestnut with a star colt born in 2008. His dam is Birna frá Akureyri and his sire
the wonderful first prize Stígandi frá Leysingjastödum II. Already at a young age he showed remarkable
charisma, a bold and easy character, and good movements. He continues to develop into a strong young stallion
with a sweet character. Congratulations to Lisi Ohm of
Vindsdalur Icelandic Horse Farm! We hope Blær will be a fine addition to her farm and breeding program.
Skáti from Sand Meadow
"Remi" and Sandy
Skáti is a beautiful dark bay naturally tolting colt born in 2007. His
sire his our own Kalman frá Lækjamóti and his dam, Fluga frá Blönduósi. He is a
cheerful guy that has a very bright future as a exceptional trail horse like both his parents. Congratulations to
Sandy Plumb of Pittsford, NY on her purchase of Skáti - her very first Icelandic horse!
Fluga frá Blönduósi
Fluga was a very difficult one to let go. A beautiful and sweet naturally tolting mare she was easy and
open to all riders. Fluga’s kind and gentle nature made her a favorite around the farm. She also gave us two
beautiful foals, Freyja from Sand Meadow and Skáti from Sand Meadow. Freyja, in fact,
is being retained by us to serve in her mother’s place - so she has some pretty big shoes to fill. We will miss
Fluga terribly, but we feel she will be happy and well cared for in her new home - Azur Farm in Beaver, PA.
Hrímnir the huggable!
Hrímnir came to us in his late teens. Once a beloved family horse, his children had grown and he found
himself without a real job, bored and lonely. He needed to find his calling in life and we found it for him as a
therapeutic riding horse. As a pure tolter with a bold personality and real love for people and attention, Hrímnir
became a natural at his new home, Atlantic Riding Center for the Handicapped located in Egg Harbor, NJ. At ARCH Hrímnir will spend the rest of his life bringing
lots of joy to people who need his gifts the most.
Hera frá Hofi
Hera is a first prize chestnut mare imported by Sand Meadow Farm. This daughter of the honorary prize stallion
Hervar 963 frá Sauðárkróki is one of the highest evaluated mares in North America for ridability. She is as
beautiful as she is talented. For several years she served as a performance and breeding horse for Sand Meadow
Farm, giving birth to two very promising fillies for us, Roðadís from Sand Meadow
and Sóla from Sand Meadow.
Hera was sold to established breeders of Icelandic
horses in California.
Gumi frá Barkarstöðum
Gumi and new owner Sue
Gumi is a beautiful silver dapple gelding. Five gaited, Gumi has taught many the thrill of the flying
pace – but his tolt is still always smooth and clear. He is safe, reliable, and fun for beginners and
more advanced riders.
With his intelligence and mischievous character we really miss having Gumi around. He is now happily
living in Michigan and much loved by his new “mom” Sue Staggemeier.
Jóa frá Langárfossi
This beautiful and kind blue dun daughter of honor prize stallion Stígur frá Kjartansstöðum was sold to a
breeder/trainer of Icelandic horses in Canada.
Although Amma was rescued, not sold, we decided to include her. On Christmas
Eve 2001 we rescued Amma, an approximately 20 year old red dun flaxen
Icelandic mare from a sleazy back yard barn here on Long Island.
Amma was born on Long Island and a descendant of imported horses known as
the "Long Island Herd". Like the herd she came from Amma had
quite a rough life. We felt that she deserved a better life and
brought her home. Her original name, Taffy, just was not a proper
Icelandic name. So, we renamed her Amma, which means
"grandmother" which seemed to suit her generous nature and aged
appearance. She may not have been treated well in the past, but that
didn’t dampen her sprits any. Always full off good cheer Amma was
a pleasure to be around.
In January of 2002 we found Amma a great home in Pennsylvania with Lynne
Alfonsi. Finally she had a home that loved and appreciated her the way she should have been all these years.
Sadly, in January of 2003 Amma passed away from a sudden illness despite valiant
attempts to save her. It was just her time. Amma’s "mom" Lynne was at her side and comforted her in her
last moments. She was a special girl and will be missed greatly by all that knew her.
