One of the highlights of my trip to Iceland a few years ago, says Lynda Fox photographer, was getting to see and photograph the many Icelandic horses grazing around the countryside. This breed of horse is unique to Iceland and is said to have arrive with the first settlers from Norway about 1100 years ago. Although small in size, they are strong and muscular and able to cross very rough terrain with ease. Lynda found them to be very friendly and approachable with a very gentle disposition. “I was drawn to their very long beautiful mane of hair and flowing tail” say Lynda Fox. “Their rich colors of brown, black and chestnut blended well with the Icelandic terrain”.
