An Amazing Video--Icelandics inspired by Xenophon

Kathy Sierra made this video about her Icelandic horses.  She was inspired by quotes from Xenophon, a Greek soldier and historian from around 350 BC.  Magical, mystical, inspiring, beautiful...there are not enough adjectives to describe this video.

Icelandic Quarter Horse Cross

Once again--not advocating crossing the Icelandic horse with other breeds but here is what an Icelandic crossed with a Quarter Horse looks like.  Interestingly I had an email conversation with somebody about an item on Craigslist.  He mentioned that a ranch (I don't know the name of it)  in Idaho was deliberately crossing Icelandics with Quarter horses because the visitors at the dude ranch liked riding the cross so much.  Makes you wonder why they just don't get a few purebred Icelandic.  :-)
