We have two litters planned for spring/summer 2016.
HP Nora (Fun Racing Brimi x Com) X Woody (Tøf x Vixen)
8 puppies born - Ask, Gran, Eik, Or, Lyng, Bjørk, Selje and Hassel
HP Nora from the very successful Brimi x Com-litter #1 (All siblings from the two repeat litters have made the team, more than 60% as main lead dogs! ) is bred to Woody (Tøf x Vixen) mid March, with delivery mid July. Nora is a small/mediumsized bitch, excellent lead dog and has been our key dog her whole life. The litter Nora is born in were good sled dogs from birth almost, and together with litter sister Idun, Nora has run the team into several important victories. Woody has been on the Lindahl main team for years, and he is a very good lead dog with a strong head. The greatest sled dogs combined in these two, and puppies will be superb family dogs as well.

HP Ice (HP Pund x Hexa (Lindahl)) X HP Tamada (HP Puma x HP Bruno)
From our joint litter with the Lindahls on their super bitch Hexa (Crazy Dog's B'Strong x Cera) with our HP Pund (Fun Racing Brimi x Com) we kept three puppies, and team Lindahl kept one and sold two. The season of 2015/2016, all dogs were on main teams, team Lindahl borrowing the two sold puppies to enhance their NT team.
HP Ice made her mark early as being a huge, early talent, and due to the high percentage of hound in her lineage we have decided to mate her a dog from our own breeding with a more distance profile pedigree. The father will be HP Tamada, litter brother to HP Irish who ran in lead two legs of the Norway Trail 2012. This litter was a very succesfull one, with almost 100% lead dog rate, which is quite remarkable. HP Rossi raced the 2016 Norway Trail on the team of Ørn Borgen, several legs in singel lead. HP Imola raced singel lead barely two years old!
Ice is a sweet, sweet soul, 100% quiet in the dog yard, super sweet with kids and other dogs, natural born lead dog with high intensity and very nice focus.
We are sure that this combination will produce some of the best lead dogs, early mature dogs with speed, endurance, power and focus. Intense sled dogs with the capacity and speed for sprint and mid distance racing. They will have some great sleddogs in their pedigree too!
5 puppies born: Clynelish, Dalwhinnie, Glen Grant, Glen Elgin, Glen Mitch.
We kept Clynelish (Kamilla), who was like her mother, running in lead from the start. Dalwhinnie and Glen Grant are also kept, but they have so far not been tested in front. Glen Mitch will also be a sled dog, while Glen Elgin is sold to a family who have had retided sled dogs from us previously and is an active family dog with kennel sister HP Anubis.
We have two litters planned for spring 2014.
Iduns litter sister HP Nora from the very successful Brimi x Com-litter #1 is bred to our amazing HP Sirius (HP Dawn x Pluto) week 7. Puppies expected week 16, mid April, with delivery mid June. Nora is a small/mediumsized bitch, excellent lead dog and has been our key dog her whole life. The litter Nora is born in were good sled dogs from birth almost, and together with litter sister Idun, Nora has run the team into several important victories. Sirius is one of our up and coming stars - sadly without race experience due to Bjørns illness 2013/2014, but he is G O O D. And l a r g e ;-) All legs! The sweetest souls combined these two, and puppies will be superb family dogs as well. Noras mother and sister already enjoying life in the couch...
HP Nora (Fun Racing Brimi x Com) X HP Sirius (Pluto x HP Dawn)
HP Myth litter: Puppies born April 18th, four bitches, two males.
HP "Dope" litter: Puppies born 10th of June, 2 males, 4 bitches
We have a litter from Hexa (Crazy Dog's B'Strong x Cera), this is a joint litter with Hans and Maren Lindahl. Hexa has been bred to HP Pund, litter brother to Nora and Idun from a repeat litter (Fun Racing Brimi x Com). Hexa is a very good lead dog, intense, strong, fast and focused, she never misses a race. Pund has been a great lead dog, he has raced every race, every distance and all days always. All his siblings from two repeat litters have made the team, more than 60% as main lead dogs!
We are sure that this combination will produce some of the best lead dogs, dogs with speed, endurance, power and focus. Intense sled dogs with the capacity and speed for sprint and mid distance racing.

HP Crack and HP Speed
Puppies born 02.05.13
HP Idun (Fun Racing Brimi x Com) X Ellis' racing sleddogs Rino (Timmie x Lonley)
From Com's first litter where all puppies have raced on the main team for years, Idun has been Bjørn's preferred lead dog in all races since her first year. She is very fast, very focused and totally problem free. An easy runner with nice muscle that does not stiffen. She is very quiet in the dog yard, eating everything served and she is open and friendly towards people and dogs.
When we imported Rino from Egil Ellis in 2012, it was with breeding in mind, but he has impressed us and ran himself into the team even at nine years of age! He is a very nice dog to have, very quiet, happy and easy going, running smoothly and easily in the harness. He has impressive merits with the Ellis' team, several ONAC and Rondy wins, and his full brother Ruby who is Egil's most successful race leader ever was in lead even in the 2011 season, winning the 2011 Anchorage Fur Rondy at the age of seven, with all those youngsters fighting for a place on the team! So both the genes and the achievements are combined in this dog, and we have high hopes for his offspring!
