Icelandic horses are a breed of horse that resist the cold, have two unique gaits, and are a breed with special names. Icelandics in winter get really fluffy coats, helping keep the cold out. The icelandics also have two unique gaits, one of which, the most popular, the tölt! The tölt is a beautiful, long stride gait, almost like a stretched out trot.

This specific breed of horse has special names for their horses, since the breed is quite old. Here are some examples of them:

  • Skjoni; pinto
  • Ósk; wish, desire
  • Fífill; Dandelion
