Sigurveig Gunnarsdottir & her herd of Icelandic Horses. Sigurveig's family owns about 90 horses in northwest Iceland. Her grandfather started the herd & he loved having a large variety of colors, so that's what the strive for in their breeding: as much color as possible! Sigurveig said her grandfather had a really special bond with all of the horses, and I saw that same bond has clearly been passed down to her. They sell a lot of their foals to horse lovers in Iceland, as well as Germany and other parts of Europe. The rest of the herd is kept for breeding or enjoyment of the family members; her, her siblings, parents, cousins, and other parts of her family all own some of the herd. I think it's so cool to have this family bond with the entire herd- especially knowing how important they were to Sigurveig's grandfather!
