Is Mansikki the cow some well-known character i.e. from book or a cartoon, or is it just an exercise?

It is a very stereotypical name for a cow, and polle is a pet name for a horse (and for heroin).

oh cool, you have to be very exact when expressing which one do yo want to ride, I guess...)

If you have a preference, yes...

There's a famous Finnish rock song about a guy going to Amsterdam and "ratsastaa pollella". Well, it's about a lot of other stuff, too.
