Icelandic Horses Galloping in the Sea
Watercolor 16” x 20” $600

The Icelandic Horse (sometimes called a pony because of its diminutive size) is a hardy breed, thought to be closely related genetically to the Mongol horses that were ridden by Genghis Khan. They sport lush manes and tails, and they come in every possible horsey color. They are, like the other Scandinavian breeds, tough and strong, and are well adapted to the severe climate of Iceland. Many live in semi-feral herds, and each autumn there is a large round-up which brings them to a more gentle environment to spend the winter.
