rural landscape and horse


8 June 1946, Sweden
Centenary of Swedish Agricultural Show
designer: O. Sköld
engraver: S. Ewert

According to a book titled “What on Earth Happened?”, churches owned horses and cleared a lot of woodland, then rent those reclaimed land to farmers – that was the largest force of destruction of ancient forests in the Medieval Europe.

This Swedish stamp is showing a mother horse and a pony in the agricultural field – it rather looks peaceful now, though.
