A good horse has no color

A good horse has no color, Iceland

In ‘A Good Horse Has No Color: Searching Iceland for the Perfect Horse’, Nancy Marie Brown tells the story of how she returns to Iceland to search for the perfect horse.

One of the horses seemed more interested in me than in escaping those who wanted to ride it.

  1. Some horses (like mine) get used to expecting treats from people who come out to the pasture. They’re usually the ones who follow you around, even though they know that eventually they’re going to get taken for a ride (pun intended)…;-)

  2. Interesting shot! Animals can be quite comical in their likeness to humans (in crowds there will be one person paying attention to you instead of what everyone else is looking at). This horse proves it. Great shot!!

  3. Great pic. Apparently Icelandic horses are a pure breed and were brought over with the Vikings from Norway. It amuses me to think of these fierce blood-thirsty warriors on such cute, tiny horses!

    • The Iclandic viking used their horses for transport on their island. They were mostly farmers, trying to make a living on that island. For their blood thirsty ventures they used their boats, which were really impressive.
      The horses , although short, are very strong and easily can carry even he mightiest of vikings.
      Hopefully I’ll get to ride one, next time I’m in iceland
