|Blessi made a friend.|
The modern word Viking is derived from the Norse word Vikingr which means a warrior who sails off looking for trade or plunder. The phrase fara í víking or "to go a vikinging" is used to describe thos norsemen who go off this type of expedition.
|Before grooming Blessi, she had to remove|
anything Blessi might see as plunder.
|Blessi is eyeing that sword and planning his move.|
Lord Ivan rode Blessi in a defensive "sortie" against the Norse "invaders." After the exercise, when he was addressing the fully armored fighters from horseback, Blessi tried to steal a sword.
|Blessi goes for the sword. Lord Ivan is trying|
to prevent Blessi
from cutting his mouth on the sword as
the fighter is taking back the sword.
If only Blessi had had a little more practice at fara í víking I would have come home with some awesome jewelry and weapons.
