I have compiled a few pictures of Icelandic horses for your viewing pleasure. They sure such beauties...
Of course, here are some facts about the Icelandic horse:
It is a breed developed in Iceland. Although the horses are small, at times pony-sized, most registries in Iceland refer to them as horses.
They are a long-lived and hardy breed. They reach maturity in their twenties.
These horses tend to not be easily spooked, probably the result of not having any natural predators in their native Iceland.
Icelandic horses tend to be friendly, docile and easy to handle, although also enthusiastic and self-assured.
Some are used for slaughter but mostly for competition and leisure riding.
