This is my Icelandic Stud Agi, he is very thick, very strong and muscular, but looking in this picture it appears he may have a cresty neck, this picture was taken the other day. He does have a thick coat and I'm not sure if it's just the way he's standing and the way his mane is in this picture or not. The horse has a very thick mane and it does stand up some before it goes over. He's an easy keeper, fed two flakes of alfalfa grass mixed hay, no grain gets to fat on it, twice a day. I did just put a mare in with him, to wean her foals, she adopted an orphan filly this year and they were taking her down so he got a roommate, because he won't run the mares off their food, so there is more food than he's used to. The mare is nearly back up to her normal weight, and the babies are weaned, so I could move her out, and cut him back a bit on feed.
The mare has not cycled since her last foal was born, she's a hussy when she comes in, he hasn't shown the lest bit of interest in breeding her, which could be because she's blanketed and I vapor rub the blanket everyday. No I don't want her bred she's being retired she's 20 and the two fillies really took it out of her this year. But putting her in the stud pen was the best solution, she's next to the foals, I originally moved her away to another pen where she couldn't see the babies and she freaked, ran the fence line screaming, all day I figured she'd calm down but she didn't after a week so for her peace of mind I moved her in with him, she calmed down and everybody was happy.
I do have a vet coming out in a couple of weeks, I'll have him check him.
