Flicka - Swedish for "little girl" and name of the equine star of the adventure series MY FRIEND FLICKA/CBS/NBC/1956-58.

Johnny Washbrook and Flicka the Horse - MY FRIEND FLICKA

Based on the trilogy of novels "Thunderhead," "Son of Flicka" and "Green Grass of Wyoming" by Mary O'Hara and the movie My Friend Flicka (1941), this series followed the adventures of a young Montana boy, Ken McLaughlin (Johnny Washbrook) and his horse, Flicka who lived at the Goose Bar Ranch at the turn of the century.

In the 1941 movie, a ten-year-old Ken McLaughlin tended to the wounds of a wild filly who hurt itself when trying to escape captivity. Eventually the horse grew to trust the boy and they became fast friends.

The four-year-old Arabian Sorrel who played Flicka on the TV series was called Wahama. He resembled Gene Autry's horse, Champion  having white stockings and a partially blazed face.
