Dalas are whittled from pine and handpainted with a kurbit saddle design
in Nusnas, Sweden (Dalarna province), just as they were 200+ years ago.
Today these traditional folk-art ponies are considered a symbol of Sweden.
Here is my little herd.
(The kids have Dala horsies too, but I didn't try to round those up for the photo shoot.)
