Icelandic Horses

Horse 2

I couldn’t leave Iceland without at least one picture of Icelandic horses. We saw them everywhere from the bus … and one of the guides pointed out that, in spite of their small size, they were horses, not ponies.

The best photo op came when we stopped briefly at a trekking centre. To tell the truth, I was rather dissatisfied with my photos. I had to do a lot of cropping to exclude the horse-petting people … and I didn’t quite succeed in disguising the fact that they were confined to a rather squalid paddock, surrounded by Icelandic horse-manure.

But, I suppose time didn’t permit us to seek out horses in more pleasant surroundings?
