These horses, called The Nobles, are just so beautiful that I had to do a quick post about them. My father hails from Maberly, Newfoundland and a co-worker, who also originates from Newfoundland, thought I might be interested in a recent CBC Land and Sea program on the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary mounted unit. You can feel the officers' bond with their beautiful mounts. One officer has actually postponed his normal retirement date so that he can retire when his horse does, so that he has the opportunity to take his horse with him.
I have to tell you, my eyes widened when I watched this female officer mount her 17+hh horse from the ground.....it's around the 6 minute mark of the program. Wow.
For me it was wonderful to hear that familiar accent that I find so musical, and always with a smile behind it. If you have a few minutes, take a peak. You will absolutely feel the love. :-)
