  • Did you know that Wikipedia is available in over 300 languages? The article for “horse” has been translated into most of them, but specific breeds like the Samogitian pony are only available in a handful, including Finnish. Polyglot Wikipedians translate articles into multiple languages every day. Have you thanked a Wikipedian today? #WikipediaDay https://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%BDemaitukas
