Litla Jo

By AnneWorner  
This is taken in the stable at Sælen Gård (Saelen Farm) in May last year. Each summer the Olsen's have a day of riding and fun, and show people around the stalls. The kids get to ride the horses. This is a Norwegian Fjord horse, a retired show horse, named Litla Jo. He was born June 23, 1984. Here he is getting his break from the riders.

Taken in the evening with the sun coming in through the stable doors.

Hope you like it. Thanks for looking, and make it a great day!

Never heard of a Norwegian Fjord horse before Anne, judging by Litla Jo they appear to be quite small as horses go, or is that why he got his name?.......assuming of course, that Litla translates into Little Smile
Excerllent shots in difficult lighting.

Thanks to everyone for commenting, and voting. I haven't gotten around to your PFs as I had planned today, as a toothache has put me out of commission so to speak. A trip to the dentist on Thursday Sad
