Welcome back to Lindsborg, Kansas!
Finally able to post the last set of this
This post is about the Dala Horse.
It is a painted wooden horse
originating in the Swedish
province of Dalarna. The one above
is an extra large size one that is in
front of a gift shop that specializes
in the making of the Dala Horse.
Lindsborg has 31 of these horses
set up around town. They are part
of a community art project that
has stayed put longer than most.
The Chamber of Commerce has
a pamphlet that lists all the horses
and visitors are encouraged to go
on a "Dala Hunt" to find them all.
Each horse has a identification plate
that lists the horse's name and the
person (s) who donated it .
Dala horses are a symbol of Welcome.
This one was above the door to Old
Stuga, the restaurant we had lunch at.
As we were driving around town, I
noticed that a majority of the houses
had one above their doors.
The rest of the pics are a sampling of
some of the Dala's.
We enjoyed our trip to Lindsborg.
The food was delicious, the Dala's
were fun to find and look at and
all sites we saw were awesome!
Thank you for your patience with this
post. I hope you have enjoyed learning

Off to something new next Wednesday
but first, I will see you Monday.
~Keep on Dreaming!
