The Horse

I love these sculptures ... you see something new in them every time I go by.


Historically, the horses in New France had royal beginnings, as the first ones came directly from the stables of King Louis XIV in 1665.

The progeny of these became the source of energy for farming, lumbering, mining and transportation.
By the late 19th century, as the nation expanded, many horses were brought West by train to make possible the turning of prairie into farmland and forest into lumber.

“DO RE MI FA SOL LA SI DO” conjures up the untold story of the horse’s contribution to the building of the nation.
