Mokkur Registered USIHC US2017105238 DOB 8/5/2017. He has microchip too. He is black but gets brown/golden tips from sun. He was chosen from an outstanding herd of youngsters at 3 years old. Partly because of his strong stocky build and partly because he is very friendly and loves attention. I have owned him for the past 2 years, he has is intelligent and has proven to learn fast with a good attitude. Alicia started him under saddle in 2021 then after a year to mature - 2022 his training was continued. He stands quietly for body clipping, for farrier and loads. He has a get in your pocket attitude. He is smooth gaited and athletic. His training has been more to develop his tolt for trails/not speed tolt on a track. If you are seeking the 'well separated trot" that is part of the icelandic show world, Mokkur can do it but his training has been concentrated for consistent 'gait' only. Alicia put a great 'handle' on him so he has a wonderful stop, neck reins, works off your leg -fore and hind (not so usual for an icelandic) and sidepasses - handy for trails. He has been ridden western so english is easy too. He will even pivot around to his rider on mounting block of whatever stump for mounting. He is fun to ride. It was a difficult decision to sell Mokkur as he is sooo good! He is only being sold because we can't ride all that we have and he deserves to be #1 hopefully in a forever home. 15k

#2 Nickname is Socks for translation 'long stockings'. He is USIHC IS201116414145 Registered Langsokkur Fra Steindyrum DOB 6/25/2011. Microchipped. Imported from Iceland in 2021. Socks was trained in Iceland and has the extended walk, a 'well separated trot' (that you often see on a dressage horse), an athletic hand gallop, and after that - you collect him down a bit into a very fast tolt. Fun to Ride!! He may be 5 gaited and an experienced rider could develop him for show if desired. This is the kind of horse you see on video's of icelandic shows. Alicia can send a link to his 2018 video done in Iceland - and it is impressive. With the right rider, he has a lot of potential. Socks was previously advertised to be 14.2h and the decision to buy him for a large man was based upon size. Socks arrived in Virginia and he is about 2 inches shorter. Of course, this still puts him in the tall category for an icelandic horse but not big enough for his current owner. If you are looking for an icelandic horse to experience the thrill of the tolt - you don't have to go to iceland! 18k
