Icelandic Horses and Friday Fours

Icelandic Horses and Friday Fours

I am back! Back home from Germany. Since I am feeling quite jet-lagged and have not had a good look at the photos I took I thought, I would at least join Hilary for some Follow Friday Four Fill In Fun with a short post in order to get back into the swing of things. And, of course, show you two of my photos. These are my friend and one of her Icelandic horses, Solfaxi. She rides him, too. But that day we went for a ride in her sulky. It took me a little to get used to the weird movement, but in the end it was great fun. Helped, of course, by the weather clearing up a lot for a little while.

  1. Seeing new (and old) places and people is my favorite thing about traveling.
  2.  Pickled ginger (a staple with sushi) tastes like soap water (imho).
  3. When in doubt, ask a friend or family. Or google it, but do not take what ever you find on the internet as THE truth, but investigate further with actual people
  4. Is there the secret of life? I think there is not one secret for all, but everybody, who has found it, has there own. It is so different as every person is different.

    Investigate further with actual people…made me laugh. But you are so right about the web.

      I know, right?! But it is so true, and we’d better always remind ourselves that we need real people in our lives (not saying that internet friendships are not real, but…)

    What a gorgeous, gorgeous horse!
    Welcome back!
    And I’m laughing about pickled ginger. That’s how my mom describes cilantro. Soap water!

    • Claudia Willison

      Thanks, Tamara, it is good to be back, although playing catch-up is not one of my favorites…
      Actually I do like cilantro, a lot, and I also like ginger, just the pickled sushi variety of ginger – nope, not that.

  • Susi

    As much as I love sushi, I’m definitely not a huge fan of pickled ginger. Middle daughter could eat it everyday if she had the chance. She loves that stuff.
    Beautiful pic of the horse. Bet it was an interesting ride on that sulky. It looks like fun. 🙂

  • Josie TwoShoes

    I agree with you on all counts! I love to travel, that horse is amazing!

    I have the same reaction to cilantro, which is used so commonly in these parts, tastes like dishwater! I’ve read that there is a percentage of the population that has this reaction.

    What? We can’t believe everything we read on the Internet? I’m so disillusioned now. 😉 Seriously, it amazes me how many folks actually do take it as factual.

    I suspect that there are indeed many secrets to life and maybe along the way most of us discover one or two. 🙂

    • Claudia Willison

      Always nice to find like minded people 🙂 Although, I do like cilantro, but not ginger. And you are right, there are quite few people who don’t like cilantro or even have an allergic reaction to it. Thank God, not me.

  • Rachael

    Completely agree with you about the web and also about traveling! Love your photos especially the first one – that horse is beautiful : ) have a lovely weekend and a good rest x

    • Claudia Willison

      Thank you so much, Rachael. I guess I should be used to curing jet-lag, but it still gets me. Every.single.time. Oh well, all part of enjoying traveling.

  • hilary

    that horse is beautiful!
    I love ginger – next time I have it I will be thinking of soap!

    • Claudia Willison

      It sure is, Hilary, Faxi is a cutie, but, being an Icelandic Horse, way to short for me. Pulling the sulky was o.k.
      I am so sorry, I planted this thought about ginger into your head. Sooo, just eat it, chew it, and then remember how much you love it!! 🙂

  • Jennifer

    Wise words, lovely photos!

    • Claudia Willison

      Ooh, not so wise, Jennifer, I think most people feel that way, but there are still enough out there who don’t. Happy as always that you like my photos.

  • Rorybore

    beautiful horse! what fun that must have been! I have great memories of my grandfather taking me on buggy rides with his giant all black Canadian horses pulling. they were so gorgeous.

    so true about the internet. but it’s amazing how many people believe everything they read on it!

    • Claudia Willison

      The internet never seizes to amaze me, and neither do people who believe everything they find on there 🙂
      Horses are beautiful animals… you must really cherish those memories.
