So Sleepy
My husband and I just returned from a trip to Iceland for my 40th birthday. We were lucky enough to be in Iceland during a somewhat-rare solar storm that made the Northern Lights much brighter and more active than usual, and since that's what I really wanted to see during our trip I was thrilled. One of my favorite things about the country was its beautiful Icelandic ponies. They're about 3/4 the size of a typical horses, standing about 52-56 inches tall and weighing in at 700-850 pounds, with an endearing curiosity and sweet disposition. I especially liked the ponies with the striking blond mane and tail like this one, who found himself really sleepy after my husband gave his ears a good scratching. I didn't know what to expect from Iceland, but from its rugged landscapes and unique geothermal activity to its brilliant Northern Lights and beautiful ponies, the country certainly did not disappoint. We can't wait to go back in the summer for some great hiking.

Icelandic Ponies
To celebrate my 40th birthday, my husband took me to magical Iceland, where we were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights during a somewhat-rare solar storm that made them much brighter and more active than usual. Since the Northern Lights is the one thing I really wanted to see during our trip, I was thrilled by our good timing. I was so impressed by the beautiful Icelandic ponies we saw roaming everywhere - they were about as prevelant as grazing cows in the U.S. The ponies are about 3/4 the size of a typical horses, standing about 52-56 inches tall and weighing in at 700-850 pounds, with an endearing curiosity and sweet disposition. I didn't know what to expect from Iceland, but from its rugged landscapes and unique geothermal activity to its brilliant Northern Lights and georgeous ponies, the country certainly did not disappoint. My husband and I look forward to returning in the summer for some great hiking.
