Cats

Message  LA le Mer 28 Mar - 18:09

The Vikings kept cats for their valuable skills as mousers as well as keeping cats for pets. Kittens were sometimes given to new brides as an essential part of setting up a new household. It is especially appropriate that brides should receive cats, since cats were associated with Freyja, the goddess of love.

Skogkatt, Norwegian "Forest Cat"


Pans Truls, the original Forest Cat breed standard, shows many lynx-like features.

Bears

Message  LA le Mer 28 Mar - 18:11

Trapped as cubs, they were at times domesticated. Polar bears were considered a noble gift for a king, but brown bears were widely domesticated, and were even imported into Iceland as pets where they were known as "house bears."

Brown Bear (Ursus arctos)


Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus), at times called Ice Bear.


Bear skin (je crois que chercher ce genre de références va me déprimer. Beaucoup)

Cattle: sheep

Message  LA le Mer 28 Mar - 18:13

Gutefår or Gotlandic Sheep: These unusual sheep often had four, six or eight horns. Vikings valued theim for their wool, which was gathered by plucking or after it was shed naturally, for their meat (both lamb and mutton) and for their milk.


Icelandic Sheep


Manx Loghtan Sheep: often had multiple horns, sometimes growing the expected two horns, but could also have four or even six horns.


Hebridean Sheep: known for its hardiness and ability to thrive on sparse vegetation


Probably not viking, but so cute I had to link it here nonetheless. Soay lamb from Scotland!




Wool


Nälbinding


Sheep horn

Cattle: Cows

Message  LA le Mer 28 Mar - 18:14

The Viking Age cow was a descendant of the great aurochs. This descent is recorded in the rune poem describing the rune uruz, symbolizing the aurochs:

is fearless
and greatly horned
a very fierce beast,
a famous roamer of the moor
it is a courageous animal.
Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem

Cattle: Goats

Message  LA le Mer 28 Mar - 18:14

Goats were kept wherever sheep were raised, however they were regarded as a poor man's animal, as their fleece was of lesser quality than that of the sheep, though the goat tends to give more milk.
