Here we are, at long last, introducing….
Sóley from Thordale
Out of Hetja frá Skeiðháholti (IS2002287901)
By Taktur frá Velli II (IS2009180242)
Colour: Chestnut with a blaze (Rauðblesótt) or maybe red dun – we shall see.
Sóley means meadow buttercup or sunflower in Icelandic and she most definitely is a little yellow flower.
There are also quite a few Sóley’s registered in WorldFengur so I think we are fairly safe with this name and it will be accepted.
Sóley the Foalie!
We all love her very much (and she is beginning to show a toof – I saw it today).
Lilja remains Sóley’s greatest fan.
They spend most of their day together.
I saw them both sleeping in a heap at Hetja’s feet this morning which was beyond delicious.
Surely Hetja knows these are her two daughters.
So there we are. Finally a name and we think it is the perfect name for such a lovely addition to our herd.
What I am looking forward to most (in maybe a few year’s time) is lining up Hetja with Sóley and Hjalti – they will be three peas in the pod. Mum with son and daughter. Lilja be in a different family photo.
I have a feeling, though, Moonpie will be Sóley’s nickname.
And Sóley will be her posh Sunday name which we will call her when she’s done some heinous crime.
Sóley the Foalie. Awwww
