They Left A Young Horse Alone In The Mountains. 6 Months Later? UNBELIEVABLE

Everything about this video is beautiful — the landscape, the people, the horses, and the sentiment.

Every summer, farmers release young horses of Iceland, where they’re able to roam the northern mountains freely. Many farmers believe this develops the animals’ strength, sturdiness, and independent spirits.

But every autumn, something amazing happens. The farmers gather up their neighbors and family members who must work together to bring the horses back to the farm. This tradition of herding the horses home is called göngur.

It can be an incredibly daunting and exhausting task, especially for the older farmers — but they work hard to keep the tradition alive, not just for themselves and their livelihoods, but also for the horses. Many of these farmers have been faithfully doing it since they were children.

“It’s a good thing for horses to grow up in the mountains with freedom — it’s builds their personalities.”
