I bought a 4 year old Islandic in April 2013, I have done loads of groundwork and have now backed him, my question is his feet are so small, my farrier said he is rather flat footed, I have now had front shoes on him, can anyone tell me if this is normal for the breed? I love him to bits, but I don't know anything about the breed. Thank You Carole

    I suggest you talk to Icelandic Horse experts. A good place to start would be the organization, United States Icelandic Horse Congress (USIHC), that is an official registry for this breed. They have many members and I bet they could answer this and other detailed questions about your horse. Good luck!

Some people think ICELANDIC HORSES are Ponies.
