Vikinghorses !

This is my horse and a couple og his friends. From the left is ; Tengel, Vulkan and Svartløken. They like to run and play in the snow. All three are of the old breed Nordlandshorse. The name tells us that the breed come from the north of Norway. And it`s one of three Norwegian horsebreeds. This horse was used by the vikings and has many similarites to the Icelandic horse. The Nordlandshorse is a working horse and a real tuff one to. But after world war to there was only 15 - 20 left of this old breed. Some Norwegians started to try saving the breed and today there are about 3000 Nordlandshorses registreted. It has become a populare ridinghorse . The horse is 125 - 145 cm tall and a perfect horse for children. And most of all , a great friend !

An owl at the feeder

This Eurasian Pygmy owl visited my feeder yesterday. It`s the smalest owl in europe . The lenght of this little owl is about 15 - 17 cm and the weigh about 50 - 65 g. It is a hunter who eats little birds nearly on it`s own size. And this owl likes to be out hunting in daytime. It sat in a three and enjoyed the sun. In minus 15 degrees all animals need a little warmth from the sun.

This is a julenek! Julenek is a stalk of oats tied to a pole. Traditionally, it was good luck if birds ate from the juleneks. It symbolized hope for good farming.

Today we hang them out as a snack to the birds, and it has become a symbol of Christmas in Norway.

Missing cat

Two weeks ago I got this cute little cat...but now she is missing. She has been gone since monday morning. Hopefully she is just gone for a journey, so she will be home again soon. But she is not very old, so I am afraid a fox or something else has taken her. :o(
