Faksi is an absolutely beautiful grey dun mare, bred by my friend Debbie Benson and purchased from Longview Grange in 2016. She is DIF Megan's aunt. Genetically, Faski is a great combination of lines we already have and love with Prydarson, Felix and Flotren in a beautiful grey package.
Faksi had her first foal in 2019, a beautiful filly by Thorsten (Torsetblakken x Thilde by Plutonikk). I bred Thorsten via imported frozen semen from Norway and have loved his mother Thilde, who is much missed. We are happy to have DD Flora remain in our program and see these genetics get bred forward.
Faksi foaled a stunning grey dun colt by Tsjalle in January 2021. DD Totilas has an exquisite conformation and first-class disposition.
In May 2022, Faksi foaled our dream filly, DD Finja, sired by Tsjalle. Finja will be staying in our program and are excited what the future holds for her.
In late April 2023, Faksi and Tsjalle produced a very handsome and tall red dun colt in DD Tjasse. Besides being and looking like a red dun, Tjasse is also full grey.
We have been debating whether to breed Faksi back to Tsjalle since we just LOVE this cross; or do breed her as planned to Siljar for 2024. In the end we decided to try breeding her to DD Malibu, who will only be here for this breeding season.
Faksi is confirmed in foal to Malibu for an early April 2024 foal!
For us, Faksi is simply gorgeous inside and out. She is probably our best mare in respect to breed character, has very distinctive primitive markings and correct conformation. Faksi has a beautiful shaped and long neck with a clean throat latch, making it easy for her to round. She is a very smooth ride with lots of knee action to make it look impressive, but her trot rather feels like sitting on a couch!
Faksi loves to get entertained and if not then she is just going to entertain herself! This form of curiosity can be annoying, but also makes incredible smart and willing riding horses, who just soak up every lesson.
We are very excited to see how she will develop as a riding horse and how she will cross with our stallions in the future.
