Icelandic Horses Buried in Blizzard
Photo by grapevine.is

It's only a few moments of video but amply shows the drama that took place when an Icelandic farmer checked his horses and found them stranded by a blizzard that covered the countryside in ten feet of snow in some areas. There horses were pastured on a mountain side and Icelandic Horses are well equipped to withstand their extreme environment. But, the incredible snowfall and 149 mph winds was for many the worst snowstorm in memory. Magnús Ásgeir Elíasson, a farmer living near Hvammstangi, checked his horse herd to find most of them caught in the heavy snow and one mare completely buried. With the help of neighbors, he was able to free the horses and get them to shelter.

Iv come across some of these on Instagram and I know these ponies are well used to snow and things but when these owners own barns why don't they bring them in. Surely it's not worth the risk. Anyway love the breed they seem lovely little things.
