Larger than a Shetland but smaller than a quarter horse, Icelandics are pleasant, patient, and purebred... the government has laws against importation of any other breed to this small island nation.
I now have a Facebook friend in southern Alberta who has a ranch for Icelandic horses near the foothills of the Canadian Rockies. I've told her not to be surprised if I suddenly show up for some horse hugs.
Posted for Camera Critters, hosted by Misty Dawn. Thanks, Misty. Hugs to you, too, and a special hug for your baby.
Also posted for Pet Pride, hosted by the Pets Forever blog in Mumbai, India. Thank you, and a wag and a happy "woof" from Lindy to Bozo.
