Painted wooden horses from Sweden

This summer we visited the wooden horse center in Nusnäs Dalarna/Dalecarlia, Sweden, to see the classical painted horses “Dalahäst”. It was amazing to see the hand made production of the horses.

Today the most known swedish wooden horse is the bright red. But I am much more in love with the older white horse with painting in pale blue and yellow.
