About 6000 years ago, the ancient people started to domesticate horses.  Around 10th century in Europe, people started to use horse powered plough and that helped to speed up cultivation.  Until the tractors were invented in 19th century, horses provided power for agriculture and supported increasing population on the earth.

North Swedish horses have long mane and gentle eyes in these stamps.
