Svipur, aka Blondie, was born on 26 August 2007 in the UK. He is a palomino, and has one white foot, a faint star and a snip on his nose. He also has a white spot on his rump which isn’t mentioned in his passport – because his didn’t have it until a certain Big Fat Cob bit him on the bum when he first arrived!
Fleygur, also known as Little Viking Horse, was born on 21 June 1999 in the UK. He is black with a crescent moon shaped star and a snip on the end of his nose that looks like a fork of lightening.
Fleygur means ‘flying one’.
Fleygur is five gaited, meaning he can tölt and pace, in addition to the usual gaits of walk, trot and canter/gallop.
His parents names were Móna frá Sandhólaferju (mare) and Falur frá Gíslhoti (stallion). You can read more about the naming of Icelandic horses on this website.
