Artist's Description

“Icelandic Horses Greet Each Other” by Catherine Sherman.

A pair of Icelandic horses greet each other in a pasture near Lake Myvatn in Iceland. In the background is the cone of Hverfjall (Hverfell) Volcano, which last erupted about 2,300 years ago.

Developed from ponies brought to Iceland by Norse settlers in the 9th and 10th centuries, the breed is featured in literature and historical records throughout Icelandic history. The Icelandic horse breed has a double coat developed for extra insulation in cold temperatures. To preserve the breed, Icelandic law prevents horses from being imported into the country and exported animals are not allowed to return.
