Recently I received an email from an Icelander in Minnesota named Jon who has a wonderful horse farm called North Coast Fjord and Stables. I mentioned him briefly in my prior post. I just received a message from him that made me want to hop on a plane and visit Iceland. The tourism bureau needs to think seriously about putting him on their payroll. Checking out the web sites he suggested I found this video on youtube. I got so excited about visiting the national park information center.
Visiting Jon's website and seeing their farm and Norwegian Fjord Horses is a visual treat. Here is just a little sample.
Even though I would love to ride on their farm, I am frugal enough to not be able to justify a trip to MN from CA for a trail ride. However, following the links he suggested for the surrounding area, I found something that I might be able to justify a small MN holiday. There is a Folk School in the area and attending a Scandinavian style Folk School is on my wish list. There are not many in North America and the The North House Folk School stole my heart.
I find it amazing how we can share information with each other over the internet so that our knowledge and horizons expand. Thank you Jon. I am not going to meet "a horse" again without inquiring about it's family and how they are doing.
