Gragas, the Pet of the Day
Name: Gragas
Age: Ten years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Icelandic Horse
Home: Stockholm, Sweden
   This is Gragas, he is an Icelandic horse. Gragas is a very special horse, he's always very interested in new things (unlike the most other horses who run home as fast as they can when they see something new). He loves to investigate new things, like ride in "strange" places, visit with friendly dogs and check out new items. His favorite treats are carrots and, of course, Swedish apples. In my opinion he's the greatest horse in the world and I wouldn't trade him for anything! I've had him for about three years and I've never fallen off of him, and I think that proves what a nice horse he is.

    Gragas favorite thing to do when we are out in the forest is to galop as fast as he can, and that is really fast! He also likes to jump. But as he is a pretty small horse, and not "made to jump," he sometimes can have some problems. But he never refuse to jump, if it's possible for him to jump he will. The thing he does best is tölt, that is a special gait that the islandic horse is trained to do.
