video here

Don't worry, it's a happy ending but my heart was still in my mouth watching it. I can't believe how calm and well-behaved they were.

ooooh my goodness

I am NOT going to try that at home!

do you think they were just numb with shock and cold at first?

Iceys are very calm generally. A lot of horses in Iceland will be used to crossing ice cold melt water streams.

Are any of you fellowcey enthusiasts?

Meant to say fellow icey enthusiast, but my keyboard keeps sticking blush

I was getting really worried about the grey who was still in near the end because it was looking quite sleepy as though the cold was getting to it and it was giving upsad. I was so relieved when it got out!

oh my, my tummy was in a knot watching that, esp for the little grey who looked like he was going under...

lucky the water was so shallow - they seemed to be standing. freezing though but could have been so much worse.

korma, a friend of mine reckons that iceys are like pringles - you can't stop at one grin. Although so far I've managed it, but wait until dd is a bit bigger...

Hands up who was frantically "clicking", and saying "Oh come on, please, you can do it" whilst watching that.
