Roaming with Icelandic Horses

Where Horses Wander and Elves Reside

“Before travelling to Iceland I had heard stories of the beautiful Icelandic horses that roam the countryside. They are a rare breed, unique to Iceland, with extra thick hair and long manes to help withstand the cold Icelandic weather. But I had no idea how beautiful they actually would be.  Naturally, as we drove the ring road around Iceland, I took every opportunity to stop to pet, feed and photograph these beauties. Interestingly enough, I became something of a horse whisperer. No one was ever able to feed the horses or pet them for long periods of time but me! So here I am having just fed an apple to this beautiful guy. He even looked like he was smiling! Perhaps it’s because we have the same hair?! What do you think?”~ Eileen from @lighttravelsfaster.
