Hello and welcome from Asturias...

Isn't Fryslan famous for a breed of horse?


Welcome to the melee from Norway.

Gawber, the horse breed is one of the finest and most expensive in the world. My personal favourite is called Tessa. Google the breed name and the horse name and you'll find out why.

Jildau, there are threads here about dogs, cats and magpies which are a gold chest for writers of children's books. Frank Muir's "What-a-Mess" comes to mind. One of the mods could point you the right way.

Megod, I have forgotten me glasses at work and can blame nobody but meself. What a nice weekend this will be

Thanks for all your welcome's and hello's!

This weekend we celebrated my grandmother's 90th birthday, so that is why I couldn't reply sooner / this weekend.

In answer to some of your responses & questions:

Gawber, mihto, the Friesian is indeed a fine horse. Expensive I cannot say, but it would not surprise me. They are quite common in Fryslân, but valued highly. Some more information about the breed you can find here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friesian_horse.

gz, I don't know much about Friesian sheep, so I will have to look that up for you. The sheep in the pastures here, are mostly big, white animals and occasionally brown with a white stripe on its head. There is also a Friesian dog breed, called 'Stabyhoun' or 'Friese stabij'. A most useful dog with many abilities. Friendly, but also a fine watchdog. For pictures see: https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stabij.

Colour it green, I'm impressed, you're almost right! The Dutch only put words in a different order, so the sentence is actually: Sorry, ik spreek geen nederlands.

Mihto, I've never written a children's book before. At the moment I'm mostly writing articles about various subjects. But I've seen many examples, I am trained as an editor, I know a good illustrator, so who knows...

ik spreek geen nederlands

turns out I can't too....

the sheep that are black/brown with a white stripe might be zwartbles - a dairy breed. a few folk here keep them
