Im Are Special!

Today, I went out to near where the presidant of Iceland lives, its a much nicer looking white house. But I went out to help a Friend of Sylvía's round up her horses, so I went að Smala Hestum.. or something ahhaha herding horses hahah Icelandic horses, I kept laughing because they run so funny hahahah and the missionaries came to do some service, it was Great! and there was a dog that kpet growling at the horses, must have been a herder dog.

So after the horse smaling, the owner of the horses was so pleased with our help (because usually there are only these three older farmer guys that herd all the horses, which are like 12) that she took us out to Pizza! we all got half a large pizza at Eld Smiðjan, apparently the best Pizza in Iceland, I think its only in Reykjavík though, because Pizzan of Hafnarfjörður is ten billion times better!!!!!!

But anywho the smaling was super fun! we all arrived on the scene and then we split up into two groups, one to herd the horses out of their fenced area and one to lead them into the pen. All the females were in the herding group, so we were all running through an Icelandic horse field (paddock?).


There is a reason why the Icelandic horses run so retardedly, and look so funny. þúfur.

I dont know what they are called in English, or even if there is a word for them. hahahah Iceland is the only place I have seen them, then again I havent seen much of the world. Okay, so I just googled it and some smarty pants english speaker said they are called Tussock or... tuft. But no way! anywho, so we were running along these things hoping not to fall between (some people did, and then lost their shoes hahahaha) trying to HUA! the horses in the right direction. and then sometimes there were suprise puddles that were little rivlets because we were right near the ocean haha

So we chased them onto the road that led to the little stable. The Missionaries and the farmers were there to lead the horses into the pen it was so fun to do and watch! hahaha! then the farmers took off horse shoes and clipped their hoofs? interesting stuff, and the one i liked straight away was the one that was a stubourn mofo. JOKES! but the lady who needed our help owned two of the horses and was moving them to a different stable for obedience lessons, and she told us that one of them was a stubbourn silly that likes to show off and the other was a scaredy horse hahaha but as soon as I got to the pen I saw a grey one and it was very lovely! and so it was my favourite, but it turned out it was the stubourn show off and the missionaries said before it went in the pen it did a little walk around the yard and some hind leg standing hahaha it was a mean horse, it kicked and bit the others, it was like it was the leader haha and I spotted the other one straight away because it kept all of the sudden jumping and running away ahhaha

Anywho after that we went to pizza without the missionaries because they are busy fellows. people stayed and chatted for a Long time, and they talked a lot of political blabla, about how Iceland shold be more independant. I think they should do more than talking and protesting.

Anywho after that the day was all but gone, and I was so tired, so I got out my knitting and did a few circles (im knitting vettlingar, this is the third time I've restarted them ahahah) but I was so tired I put them down and took a nap hahaha then I woke and did this Wooha! I'm a Real Icelandic Cowboy now! I dont have a camera so I dont have any pictures. blem blem blem, I will never have a camera again, my last one died of unknown causes, and its not something I am really bothered about.

The northern lights are out and its wonderful! Christmas lights and Music, northern lights and Snow! THIS YEAR IS GOING TO BE AWESOME! unless everyone is a douche, than it wont be awesome at all. but I will do as Captain Picard and "Make it So!" hahahahah well

enough of my blathering for now, TOODLES FOR NOODLES!

Such a great post! It made me want to come and chase the horses with you! I love that you knit. I can crochet, no biggie, but knitting is hard for me! I can't get the hang of it. I love that it's all christmasy already there. I am sad you don't have a camera. But you go, you Real Icelandic Cowboy! woo hoo.
