Title Icelandic horse
Description The Icelandic horse is a breed of horse that has lived in Iceland since the mid-800s AD, having been brought to the island by Viking settlers. The Icelandic Horse originated from breeds taken from Scandinavian and European countries to Iceland during the original and subsequent settlements but has now been bred for centuries without the addition of outside bloodstock.

These little horses are amazing.

My sister keeps her horse (a Mustang) at a stable where there are several of these "Viking horses" - very "smooth" ride (they have their own unique gait, they have the sweetest temperament and they never seem to get tired).

Ironic that they were bred by the Vikings, historically known throughout the world as being such a violent, barbaric and savage peoples.

A most applicable quote is this one...

"You can judge a man's true character by the way he treats his fellow animals."
— Paul McCartney (former Beatle)
