The Horses of Sable Island


A couple of weeks ago we took our friend Gaye to the
 Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History. There was a photo exhibit 
of the horses of Sable Island (click to learn more).


Ron and Gaye taking in these beautiful photographs.
The second time for Ron and I to visit this exhibit......
like it more each time.














This was Gaye's favourite one.

    1. Since Gaye is a 'horse person', she could fill us novices in on some important details about these critters in general, Debra.

  7. Beautiful animals and story. Doesn't it get really cold there in the winter?

    1. Can you just imagine, Terry! The lighting in the exhibit was dimmed somewhat and allowed for some great shots to be taken.

    1. Parks Canada only allows a few people each year and one has to apply, Janie. I would LOVE to see these horses from a distance. I hope they keep limiting the numbers of tourists. This is a pristine area of wilderness and we don't really need a lot of humans there. You know what 'we' are capable of.

    2. Oh, yes. I've been to Assateague Island to see the "wild" ponies. They get a ton of tourists. The ponies stand around, enjoying the petting and the food the tourists give them.
