Sporður frá Bergi – Icelandic Stallion
Many boast of being the complete package, but few can back it up like Sporður frá Bergi can! Pronounced, “Spor-dthur frow Bear-gee,” this Icelandic Stallion’s friends call him Sporður. Imported from Iceland in 2013, he now calls Kentucky’s Lettleiki Icelandics at Swallowtail Farm home. This five-gaited stallion has show-stopping gaits, incredible bloodlines, and a friendly personality to back it all up! Sporður also sports a flashy red dun pinto coat that makes his high-quality movements stand out even more in the show ring.
An athlete and breeding stallion, Sporður is passing on his unique coloring and powerful build to his offspring in the U.S. and Iceland. Like their sire, many of them have been rated “first prize” – the highest breed evaluation ranking available to the breed, which is based on conformation and movement.
With his winning ways and high-quality offspring, Sporður is leaving his colorful mark in the world of Icelandics!
