Icelandics

I don't own one either - I have a Paint, but my friend who I trailride with 5 times a week rides an Icelandic named Ljufur. He is fabulous. I've ridden him quite a few times and it's a blast to tolt on him and his canter is as smooth as glass. He's our barn trooper - never spooky, has a great work ethic and calms all the other horses down. I love him (but of course I love my Paint more). This really is an incredible breed. One time I took my big guy on an Icelandic horse outting. We were riding on the beach on Cape Cod and there were all these little Icelandics and my horse looked like she was babysitting. But what a blast we had. Icelandics are very, very special. Hope you own one someday. Em

But M2G I wouldn't have taken you as an icy person you are such a devoted draft fan, and icies aren't much in the height depertment
And thanks for the compliment :)
I might be one to live in the north pole BUT I grew up in Europe and those guys were always around so I think that's probably why they will always hold a special spot in my heart
