Iceland horses are considered brave and proud. Their interaction with people is respectful and humble and their character is good and balanced.
On the next picture you can see the Iceland horse. Since the legs are relatively thin compared to the rest of the body (based on the original) you have to stuff them tight so that the horse is able to stand up.
This horse has a height of 25 cm/9,8 inches. I crocheted it with gradient yarn. Unfortunately the colors changed little, but it’s still become very unusual. I did not brush the mane and the tail, which reminds me of a vintage horse.
Here you can see the foals again. They are about 14 cm high. First I crocheted the foal with light brown wool and short mane. Then I changed the pattern a bit to make it stouter and shortened the legs, so it looks more like the Icelandic horse.
If you feel like bringing such a great horse or a foal to your place, just go and grab your crochet hook and there you go:

I would love to publish a children’s story once again. Maybe one or the other of you writes children’s stories that he wants to publish on my blog.
I wish you all wonderful and relaxing holidays!
