During a snow flurry in the falling temperatures of Iceland in Autumn, an Icelandic Horse nuzzles it's companion. These horses are unique in that their geographic separation from Europe has kept them genetically pure for over 800 hundred years. Only the best horses were originally transported to Icelandic by Nordic and other tribes during the small islands settlement over 1000 years ago.

Location: Grindavik - Reykjanes Peninsula - South Western Iceland
