Our greyhound seems to have no prey drive at all, even though he won on the track. He's fascinated by squirrels, but only wants to stand and stare at them quizzically. (He has tried to gallop off 2 or 3 times in the 2 years we've owned him, but he's always on the lead, so that didn't work very well.)

Lovely filly. :)

Cool! I was first time there, lots of tourists but it's probably the best time to visit!
No I didn't go to his gallery, only saw his paintings here and there. We had a long bus ride around the island, sleeping only one night at each place. I wish I had a chance to see the horses closer to the wilderness, because we only saw a short performance for tourists (which I didn't really like) and then some herds grazing near the road. If I come back next year I will definitely try to ride somewhere.

Saw quite a lot of the ponies. A couple of years ago I saw some Icelandic ponies at a nearby riding school close to where I live. Did you see them do the tolt? Hard to believe how fast they can move when their legs seem to be walking!

Yes, amazing! Maybe not as much as the Spanish Riding School which I saw last autumn, but in case of Icelandics it's more about their gait abilities than rider's skills ;)

Just recently I found this video of an Icelandic horse "spooking" by only raising his eyebrows:

super cute!

Love the video! Saw the Spanish Riding School a couple of years ago. Seriously amazing, the airs above the ground were breathtaking - and I managed to get some decent photos as well  :)
