Where are we!
Grafarkot is situated just between Reykjavík and Akureyri a few km from the village Hvammstangi. See here
At Grafakot we live, Indriđi Karlsson and Herdís Einarsdóttir with our daughters. Until few years ago we breed horses along with our sheep farming but since that time, we have only kept horses.
2001 was large and good stable built at the farm with space for 30 horse. There are only loose boxes in the stable, 20 for 1 horse each, and 5 for 2 horses each. Also a 30*12 m riding hall was built, which is very useful for starting horses.
Horses and evrything that goes with them has always been a big part of our live, all the girls are very interested in the horses, all of them have compete a lot, often with good results. We always try to go at least once over the summer time in a good horsetrip and then we also use our horses in the fall to get both horses and sheeps down from the mountains. So our horses get many different kind of training.
The fall 2002 we bought again 19 sheep just for fun, so the sheepfarming has start again though the herd is small. Now we have 44 sheeps.
