The Ice Horse by RenneOne day the little Icelandic horse is chased away from the herd by the black stallion, and left to roam the grasslands on his own. Then the winter comes and the snow starts to fall. Can the little skewbald horse save the day as the herd of Icelandic horses finds itself in danger from the snow and ice? Alongside the beautiful illustrations and gripping story, this book is full of interesting facts about Icelandic horses - their history, appearance and how they live - which will appeal to any animal-loving child. For additional information on Icelandic horses, visit the website of Pentland Hills Icelandics in Carlops, Scotland at www.phicelandics.co.uk. They have the largest herd of Icelandic horses in Britain.

Both colour pictures and sketches are expertly drawn, with superb dramatic detail. Young horse-lovers will enjoy adding this rather endearing breed to their stock of equine knowledge, and the book's wintry theme would make it a great choice for Christmas.'
