I dug through my archives to find pictures of this mellow fellow we once had as a pet. Calypso Blue was a miniature horse and he measured 32 inches at his withers. He was one of the mellowest horses I ever met. His companion, Scooby, pictured here, was a lot more feisty.
I’m posting these because I noticed that one of the Icelandic horses in Leya’s post on the Precious Pets photo challenge looked a lot like Calypso Blue.
I think I took these photos on the day we bought him. It took a LONG time to brush out that mane and tail.
It’s hard to tell in these photos, but underneath all that mane he had piercing blue eyes. We sold him when we moved. This mellow fellow went to a home with a little girl who showered him with affection.

What a gorgeous creature Siobhan! So happy he found a little girl to love. Must have been hard for you go give him up but maybe knowing he’d be loved made it a little easier
Yes, it was hard but he went to a good home.
Calypso Blue! What a lovely creature! And yes, I can see what you mean about the likeness too. I am so glad to hear you found a new, loving home for him. Thank you for posting!
Beautiful animal! I’m so glad for that little girl! 🙂

Yes, he was a handsome guy. 😁
