Fire & Ice Icelandic Horses

Fire & Ice Icelandic Horses LLC, located in Limington, Maine is owned and operated by Nikkisue & Alicia Flanigan. I had the pleasure of photographing some of the goings on around the farm for their brand new website http://fireandice.horse/. Alicia and her Mom absolutely adore their horses and the love and care they give them is amazing to witness. Alicia is only 17, but is very mature and has traveled back and forth to Iceland 5 times, fully immersing herself into the Icelandic culture making her a true professional in the Icelandic horse industry. She is a professional horse trainer, and a strong competitor showing and training the Icelandic breed. She loves competing and has competed in Icelandic horse shows all over the U.S. as well as Holland, Sweden and Iceland. I had so much fun spending time on their farm and I can’t wait to go back!
