Hi Folks,

In the photo galleries below you will find photos of Heavy Horses, aka Draft Horses, and Oxen.  Once indispensable in agriculture, foresty, and transportation these powerhouses were at the brink to extintion after tractors and trucks took over in the 1950s.
However, a few enthusiasts kept the breeds alive, and showing their Belgians, Clydesdales, Percherons, and Oxen is a much anticipated highlight for many visitors of Provincial Fairs and Agricultural Exhibitions.

Horse and Oxen owners please note that use of these photos is permitted for your own personal use!

If you find a photo posted that you would like removed from a gallery just let me
know and I will take it off-line ASAP (email me the file number shown below the image)
.

The size of images in the web galleries is only suitable for On-screen viewing and your Social Media use.
If you find a photo that you like to get for your own personal use in higher resolution and without the watermark (to get a print made or such) send me an email (ulli@dunlin.ca) with the file number you see below or above the image and I will send you a file without watermark and a resolution suitable for a making prints up to 8x10 or 8x12 .

In return for using image files I ask you to Consider a Donation to the
Cobequid Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre in Brookfield, Nova Scotia.


How much? Whatever you think the images are worth to you, or how much you can spare.
