Name: Falcur

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Icelandic

Birth: 1996

Status: With Blue Rider since: 2002

Falcur came flying to us from Iceland in 2002, twenty years ago! Like many Icelandics, Falcur is much
stronger than his size suggests (although now that he is in his late twenties, he no longer does
as much of the heavy lifting as he used to), and he tends to think things through before reacting,
resulting in a calm intelligence that, along with his soft, lateral gaits, makes him a superb
therapy horse. He may be getting older, but he still loves to play with the other horses,
especially the other Icelandics, and keeps the younger horses on their toes.
Falcur has a suppressed immune system and some residual lameness from a pasture injury
years ago, and we have recently begun treating him for Cushing’s disease.
