    Grazing horses

    GRAZING HORSES
    2 more images

    Driving from Kedainiai highway 144 northwards just before turning right to Seduva, I saw a few grazing horses on a meadow to the right. One of them was saddled.

    Well, I guess, the staff of nearby motel (motelis) offers horse riding for visitors. The agricultural area around is completely flat and there are few good quality secondary roads, so the horse riding may be a good option to visit surrounding off the beaten path places.

    As I noticed horse breeding, training abd riding is more and more popular in Lithiania which is mostly flat country covered by grassy meadows. Well, the tradition of horse riding is over 1,000 years old in Lithuania. More: floowo the link below, please.

    PAGAN ADVERTISEMENT :-)
    4 more images

    Driving highway 144 northwards from Keidaniai before turning right to Seduva I passed by endless fields of corn. In the middle of the corn field there is a wooden advertisememnt of motel and tavern in the windmill.

    The sitting statue of devil reminds me traditional pagan sculptures of Lithuanians or broader the Balts. Keep in mind that Lithuanians were the last surviving non-nomadic European nation to abandon paganism.

    Well, to get to know more I wanted to visit ethnographic exposition in Seduva but unfortunatelly it was closed on Monday when I was there.

    Agriculture now and in the past

    DOTNUVA FIELDS AND HOUSES
    4 more images

    Driving around Suduva I've seen endless flat fields of corn and meadows used as pastures for cattle and horses. In the town, among local houses I've seen fields divided into little areas owned by particular locals.

    Well, agriculture in the Soviet Union was organized into a system of state and collective farms, known as sovkhozes and kolkhozes, respectively. They were poorly managed which gave poor worker productivity and thus were very unproductive. The result was continues lack of food in state-owned groceries.

    In Lithuanian Soviet Republic locals were not allowed to own any field except a very little one by a house, rather a yard. These very little yards were commonly used to supply local families with food in times of continuous lack of basic food in state-owned groceries. Due to motivation of their owners their productivity was much higher than in state-owned collective farms. And nowadays these small fields look well as well as the area around around the parish church.

    SEDUVA WINDMILL
    4 more images

    When I drove northwards highway 144 from Kedainiai I saw this old windmill in my picture on the right just before turning right to Seduva.

    Since 1967 the windmill near Seduva has been converted to a roadside tavern Uzuoveja (Shelter from the Wind). In fact the windmill which advertises as the old one was built in the beginning of the twentieth century when this agricultural area was incorporated into Russian Kovno (Kaunas) Guberniya. Nowadays the new wooden cottage built by the windmill houses "motelis" (motel).
