u. Iðunn från Fagerland

A black gelding with a small snip and star. Moved here in the autumn of 2015. He’s a five-gaited horse still is under training, but doesn’t necessarily like to hurry anywhere.

u. Lísa frá Þorlákshöfn

Piebald gelding who came here from Iceland in 2017. A beautiful fivegaited horse with good gaits and great spirit. Does well with most things and can be ridden by most people. In the summer he does a lot of the longer tours.

Þórgnýr frá Ytri-Skógum

Gelding born 2009
a. Þóroddur frá Þóroddsstöðum
u. Gná frá Ytri-Skógum

A very sensitive guy who came to us from Island in 2019. Solely worked by us but has splendid movements and is both willing and happy to work. He much prefer things to stay the same as they have always been, change and new people and scenarios are no hits in his book.

Týr frá Litla-Moshvoli

Gelding born 2012
a. Ás frá Ármóti
u. Tign frá Litla-Moshvoli

A big bay laphorse. Tyr came to us in the beginning of 2019. At that time he had not been introduced to a rider, nor had he been handled much. But during the summer of 2020 he tagged along on a few tours. He likes being involved and cuddling, perhaps more with humans than with other horses. 

Ira

Jenny’s dog, Finnish Sami dog born in 2013. A calm and nice dog who usually follows Jenny on riding tours.

Smilla

Lunar

King of the stable. Quite social but disappears when it’s to much people. Keeps the mice away with some help from the dogs. Born in 2004.

Skáidi och Rippe

Two African dwarf goats who moved here in the summer 2010. Tough, funny animals who do whatever they like. Live in the stable and have taken over there. 

Reindeer

Both Kerstin and Matti own reindeer, but they are in the mountains in the summer and wander down to the forest land in the winter time. For us, the reindeer is a really important animal and a big part of the Sami culture.

Moose

During winter timer we usually have as much moose as horses at the farm. They come here to steal hay from the horses and walk around however they like.
