Wild Horses – Sable Island Nova Scotia
Sable Island is well-known for its population of wild horses. The wild horses are descendants of animals introduced to the island in the 1700s, and are considered by many to be iconic features of the island with natural and cultural heritage value. The current population is approximately 500 horses. The Sable Island horse, sometimes referred to as the Sable Island pony, is a type of small feral horse found on Sable Island, an island off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada. It is a small type, often pony sized, but with a horse phenotype and horse ancestors, and usually dark in colour.
