Iceland: Cute Horses and Sheep
July 14, 2014 10 Comments
One of the fun things about driving through the Icelandic countryside was seeing the adorable horses and sheep. Icelandic horses look like small ponies, and first arrived with the Vikings. They have a unique gait (tolt) that lets them move smoothly over rough terrain. Icelandic sheep are world famous for their wool. No other breeds of horse or sheep are permitted in Iceland. The pure bloodlines of these hardy animals have been around for over 1,000 years. We were especially fortunate to visit in June – there were lots of baby horses and lambs in the meadows.
