Sóley from Thordale

Here we are, at long last, introducing….

Sóley from Thordale

Out of Hetja frá Skeiðháholti (IS2002287901)
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

    Aww, what a lovely name for a lovely little filly! She is unbearably adorable. Your pictures of her and her sister are just amazing. I won’t ever get tired of more shots of her! I can only imagine how sweet it is to spend time with her. You are so lucky and rich beyond measure!

    I have a special place in my heart for your little “sunflower,” having lived in Kansas (The Sunflower State) for nearly 60 years. She is beautiful! Looking forward to the family portraits.

    Such a cutie pie; Moonpie it is! (except in formal circumstances, of course).
    Love seeing that Mom and her daughters are getting along so well…
