Friends so Fine
The Icelandic horse is a fascinating breed with unique qualities. Shaped by the harsh elements and the freedom of Icelandic nature, it is now sought after worldwide and bred to the highest standards. The Icelandic, as it is commonly called internationally, is a sturdy, resilient, good tempered and adaptable breed. Unlike any other breed, it displays five gaits. Great variety in coat color is also one of its characteristics.
For centuries, the horse was the only means of transportation in Iceland as well as being an important working animal. It was therefore referred to as "the most useful servant". Icelandic farmers still use the horse to round up sheep, but nowadays most horses are kept for leisure riding and competition.
Each year thousands of foals are born in Iceland. Most of them are born outside in grassy fields where the breeding mares roam in herds all year round. Breeders like to watch their foals closely in the beginning since they believe that the characteristics presented by young foals can predict their outcome in the future. These two fine friends both bear traditional Icelandic names, i.e. Fregn and Fornöld. They were born at the farm Fornhagi II in North Iceland in the spring of 2006. They have now grown to be fine young meres and are considered to be of good potential.
