Kjalar received his scores as a 5 year old in Iceland.  He has a groundcovering smooth Tolt,  fluid Trot and powerful Pace. He is  tall  with elegant conformation and throws his size and conformation very strongly to his offspring, along with his natural Tolt and  the great temperament.

His parents are both outstanding horses - the 1. prize sire is famous  as one of the most popular breeding stallions in Germany; he is out of the legendary Ofeigur 882 fra Flugumyri.  Hilmir has proven himself already as a young stallion, producing a number of prize horses. The Ofeigur line has produced many horses that have great work ethics and are superior gaedingur. The mother is evaluated 1. prize with a high  percentage of 1. and 2. prize offspring, see here.  Kjalar is intelligent, unafraid and wants to please. He has a high energy level with impressive stamina and willingness.

Sire: Hilmir fra Saudarkroki 1. prize stallion w. 8.41 for talents
Dam: Sunna fra Akranesi    1. prize mare w. 8.52 for talents

Kjalar has been gelded in Oct 2007, because we decided to limit our operation to one stallion on the premises. We think his genetic potential is valuable for the future, thus we decided to collected and frozen Semen. It is stored with JCS Vet Repro Services in Langley, BC and is available for purebred Icelandic Mares.

We would recommend Kjalar  for most Mares if you want fivegaited, tall horses with brave and willing temperament.  He passes on his incredible temperament, smooth gaits and good work ethics. The possibility for Pinto color is just the icing on the cake!
