Stína's back- Update More Photos!

With brand new (loads of) fat..

Or something like that
Anyway, there isn't a lot because I asked my mom to take pics while I was getting something in her stall ready, and my mom took 2 pics that were so dark you can't even see a horse :roll:


This is all the snow we get? Pfft, that's barely even snow


Lol, we both look great don't we ?

This one just to show her mane! My girl didn't rub it off

Well, anyways, I'm going to take the camera out again tomorrow, try to get some better pics (maybe I'll even catch a little daylight )

Thanks
Naw, he's staying where they were. He has been weaned
I'll start riding her soon, but for now she's just taking a little break, change of feeding and that her foal has just been weaned. She's a little vilnerable now

I'm so happy for you!
She looks really good. Boy is her tail long
How long will she stay before going back for the summer? Does everyone do that, let them go free for so many months of the year?

haha, thanks a lot Vida!
And that's her tail after almost no human contact for 11 months! I do not look froward to brushing that tomorrow

Well, almost every horse gets 4-6 months off, but since she had a foal she was sent out early Next year she will not be gone as long :)

M2G- yeah, it's the thought that counts Thanks :)

WP27-Well, they're in these huge pastures in spring/winter, but my horses e.g. Were just in this valley that was like 10 km long and just roamed there free. Then every fall the farmers around go horse hearding (I went along this year, I posted pics, but I think I moved them) and they gather them back into these huge pastures. When it's time for them to be caught, often they are hearded into smaller pastures where they're easier to be caught (that was done with my mare, she was a bit pasture shy since she had a foal).

I found this about Icelandic horses in Iceland. I find the whole thing just wonderful.
------
All horses in Iceland are given an annual vacation in late fall of each year, where they can be in herds left alone. The Icelanders feel that it is important that the horse grows up learning how to be an independent thinker, to take care of itself, and to not be too dependent on humans. The Icelanders want their horses to be thinking partners to their riders. They also believe that horses allowed to run free at least part of the year grow stronger, become more sure footed and are more self-confident.
