For those of you interested in "man's earliest transportation vehicle" , what are your favourites ?
I had a phase in my youth when I had a fascination for the American Wild West , tried traditional "cowboy clothes" and even took it upon me to take riding lessons . .
J / k with the pic , I went further than that . .
"Man's earliest form of transportation" still interests me a bit . .
I might add that I hail from Lower-Saxony . .
. . born in a more rural part of the German federal state ( even though mainly raised in Bremen and also lived in other cities . .) and the German federal state of Lower Saxony is famous for its horse keeping . .
This is Lower Saxony's coat of arms . .
Since Lower Saxony is more or less the beginning of Northern Europe ( as opposed to the Alp region ) and the last offshoots of the Alpine area within Germany end here ( the area is called the Northern German plain ) the gaze here gazes towards a never-ending horizon , all flat land . .
( the Alps within Europe were formed when two continental plates in ancient times crashed with each other , forming the high lands . .)
Their last offshoots go deep into Germany and where the more or less 'hilly' landscape ends Northern Europe begins. .
It is totally flat here ( the Netherlands , also on our latitudinal lines , are even located below sea level) . .
So . . in a way no wonder people from Lower Saxony have always had a good time riding along the endless horizon . .
lol . . perhaps my interest in those animals hails from the area from which I originate . .
My pers . favourite brand . .
The Hannoveraner race ( named after Lower-Saxony's capital ) . .
Anybody else here interested ?
Maybe Americans ? Who also live close to their 'country' roots ?
