These horses are the reel Icelandic Vikings. They have been in Iceland for over 1100 years without blending with other breeds. They can withstand heat, cold, wind, storm, snow, rain and everything in between. This closeup was taken at the same time as my pictures snowstorm and freezing cold. I think it displays very well how tough and durable they are. The wind was over 60 knots. Warriors!
