Icelandic horses are smallish but hardy, sometimes you see large men riding them, having to pull their feet up off the ground as the horse moves quickly along in a flurry of movement using the characteristic 'ambling' gait. They are the only breed in Iceland thanks to a ban on importing other breeds.
Also a big thank you to everyone who voted for this blog in the 2012 Photoblog Awards. Cheers!
