The Creator of Beautiful Dam Things

Thomas Dam was born in Denmark on October 2, 1909.  He loved and spent most of his life in his hometown of Argir, a village in the Faroe Islands.  On January 11, 1986, he passed away, just before the second "troll craze" hit.

Of All the Dam Horses, . . .

. . . this one is my favorite!

This photograph of Thomas Dam and his largest equine creation was taken in Denmark sometime during the early-to-mid 1960s.
