Bylgja (Beeg-ya) or Billie

Hi, Friends!bylgja-up-close-1

I am a 21-year-old mare (girl horse) named Bylgja. I am an Icelandic Horse and am originally from the country, Iceland. Bylgia is an Icelandic name that means “Wave”. If you’d like, you can call me by my nickname, “Billie”.

I moved to America and now live at Stoney Lick Farm with 8 other Icelandic Horses. Icelandic Horses come in many different coat colors. My coat color is pinto. A pinto coat color has two colors, white and another color. My other color is dark brown.

I’m also a Mom! My son lives here at Stoney Lick Farm too! We named him Stormur because he was born  right after a BIG storm.

One of my favorite things to do is mutual grooming with my horse friend, Garpur. We can’t reach certain areas on our backs and necks if they itch or need to be cleaned. So we help each other out by scratching and cleaning each other. It just like the saying “If you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours!”20160910_084436

I also like to be groomed by my human friends. They brush my coat and mane to keep my clean and looking nice. When you come visit, I hope you will consider grooming me. It feels so good getting my coat brushed. Sometimes, while being brushed I fall asleep standing up!

Hope to see you soon!
