Slovenia: Lipica

On Wednesday I got four postcards: one from Slovenia, one from Germany, one from Malaysia and one from India.

The card from Slovenia shows Lipizzaner at the stud farm in Lipica. The Lipizzaner is a breed of horse originating from Slovenia. It was developed by the Hapsburg nobility in the 16th century. The first stud farms were in Lipica. The breed is used in the Spanish Riding School of Vienna. 

With a great stamp:
International Year of Soils (issued 29-05-2015)
Flowers of Slovenia (from set of fourteen) (issued 29-05-2009)

Thank You very much Nusa!
