They come from Viking animals that were used as war mounts and for farm work. In fact, the Vikings were the first western European people to use the horse for agricultural work & their subsequent invasions of other areas helped to spread the practice. Most draft breeds of western Europe are thought to carry the blood of the Fjord horse.
Fjord Horse. " This horse is a primitive breed still having the dorsal stripe down it's back from the head to the tail. The mane is cut short so it will "bristle" in the traditional look.

Post WWII accessory- this is an example of a hat during the 1950s. Hats were worn for all occasions except for those that were very casual. They ranged from very small to large brimmed, but by the later 1950s they were almost always small and fit close to the head like the one seen here. There were also some turban styles, bright colors and prints, and sometimes veils.
