Here are two old friends (24 and 23 years old) having a snooze in the so-called Shetland Spring (with-absolutely-no-evidence-of) sunshine.
They are sitting on dry grassy area outside the house, getting some rest and shut-eye.
Knowing these two, they are probably cogitating while putting the world to rights.
Our two dear old boys. We love them very much.
These guys are similar in a we-are-family way and looks but also have very different views on life.
Haakon (on the left) is one year older than Iacs, so he gets to boss his cousin around. He is a wise old bird who is fairly unflappable but has a huge amount of Icelandic horse “willingness”. The day he stands still is the day he retires from being ridden. Yesterday we did mad circles in the single-track passing places while the cars went past. Having said that, I trust Haakon 100%. He is my rock.
Iacs is calmer, more optimistic, a glass half-full kinda guy. They are both the best of friends and have not been apart for nearly 20 years.
So enjoy our view, as we open my front door. We love these two boys – they are the best of friends.
