While enjoying shopping and touring in Lindsborg, the Dala horses create an added interest to the town. Each Dala is painted to match the theme of a business, church, or activity. All the children in our group enjoyed spotting the next horse down the street and running to see it. Great photo ops abound!

These are stylized Swedish horses at several locations around town that have designes psinted on them. Since they are known as 'Dala', several have designs that take off on a play of words, such as the 'Salvador Dala' which has Salvador Dali inspired designs on it. Lots of fun and a variation of objects Imhave seen elsewhere, such as boots,... More

These are painted horse statutes that have been placed at various locations throughout Lindsborg. During our day trip to town, it gave our daughter the opportunity to do her own activity and "search" for the horses (each one is different) while my wife and I looked through town, instead of being bored and just along for the ride. They are... More

What a delightful touch to this enchanting town. Fancifully painted interpretations of the original Dalarna horse dot the streets. Grab a “Search for the Wild Dala” pamphlet from the centrally located tourist information kiosk in the middle of Main Street and start your round up. Each is enchanting in its own right. Get out your lasso! Have some fun. Date... More

We were on a random road trip to nowhere and saw a sign that said :come see our heard of wild horses". A little misleading and the horse statues were not at all what we expected. We had fun and made the best of it, it was a cute little town, but we were disappointed that it turned out to... More

We honestly were a little bored. The horses were painted in a variety of schemes, but having seen buffalo & cattle done this way before, I wasn't that impressed. Maybe if this was my heritage it would have been more interesting?

So, this was the first stop on our week long vacation through the Great Plains. It was awesome! An eclectic mix of farmers and hippies, the Dala herd was great fun to see, as they are spread through all parts of the town near neat attractions. Shop owners love visitors and will take the time to visit.

Toronto had it's moose that lost their horns, other cities cows and horses. Dala Horses are uniquely Swedish in a the Little Sweden of the prairies. It would be fun to be around when the herd gathers to welcome a newcomer. The one outside Bethany Church is one such recent newcomer. Each is uniquely and artistically painted in a style... More
