We are proud to be able to offer three stallions that stand at stud. Lotto and Gneisti were imported from Germany (via New Zealand - Gneisti). Sjoli is a young Australian bred stallion out of imported parents.
We only accept pure bred Icelandic mares for breeding. Cross breeding with other breeds is not a common practice within the Icelandic Horse world and is not encouraged. Any cross breds cannot be registered. Usually the stallions run with the mares for around 6 weeks. In some cases we prefer to hand serve. Fresh chilled semen can be made available from Gneisti and Lotto. Please get in touch for more information about the stallions and stud services.

Gneisti is a chestnut (red) dun pinto stallion who was born in 2004 in Germany. He was imported to New Zealand as a yearling by the Vinbrux family from Oamaru. In August 2015 we purchased Gneisti in partnership with Narrawin stud and Alpine Icelandics.
Gneisti is five gaited and shows tölt and pace as well as the other three gaits in the paddock and under saddle. He has several offspring that are doing very well under saddle in New Zealand.
Gneisti's fantastic temperament is another thing that stands out when handling him. He is very well behaved and easy to handle from the ground and under saddle.
Gneisti is suitable for 4- and 5 gaited mares. He is standing at Narrawin stud in Dereel, Victoria (near Ballarat).

Lotto has been in active training in 2016 at Gestuet Lindenhof in Germany and was evaluated for conformation and rideability in June 2016. He has a very good and even gait distribution and a lot of very supple tolt. For breeding he will be suited for 4- and 5 gaited mares.
His first Australian foals were born in 2017 and are looking very promising.

The 5-gaited stallion Dagfari frá Clear Lake Farm, (born 2002, jet black with double mane, and a star) is a son of the First Prize stallion Náttfari vom Wiesenhof. Náttfari, a 5-gaited stallion with an overall evaluation score of 8.55, was awarded a 9 for tölt, pace and temperament (10 highest score possible). Most importantly Náttfari was a true natural tölter - a trait which he passed on consistently, along with his typical Icelandic looks.
Dagfari is an energetic horse with a fluent, supple tölt. All gaits are clearly separated with excellent movements. His pleasing temperament, honest character and willingness make him perfectly suitable for any rider.
Dagfari is expected to produce easy tölting offspring with breed typical looks, conformational strength and performance potential. He is a fitting match for both 4- and 5-gaited mares.
Canadian Icleandic Horse Federation, Newsletter 2007 October:
Clear Lake Farm in Magnetawan, ON hosted a seminar about the International Evaluation System for Icelandic Horses on behalf of CIHF during June 20 – 23, 2007.
The seminar started with a demonstration of judging the conformation of adult horses. The five year old stallion Dagfari frá Clear Lake Farm by Náttfari vom Wiesenhof served as demo horse. Barbara (*) was quite pleased with his conformation and assessed most of the individual sections with a score of 8. The back and croup were assessed at 8.5, and with more developed muscles she might even have given him a 9. His lush forelock, mane and tail would be certain to reach a 9.0.
