Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.

In the mid 1800's the Canadian Horse numbered more than 150,000. Due to the desire for larger draft breeds, and the advent of farm machinery, their numbers dwindled throughout the 1900's. By the early 1970's there were only approximately 400 left in existence. At this time, the peril of the breed was recognized, and a concerted effort was made by diligent breeders to bring the Canadian back from the verge of extinction. The breed has slowly grown to the point where there are now about 4000 in existence. Since they are rapidly gaining in popularity, the demand tends to far exceed the availability of these still rare horses. CHARACTERISTICS
The Canadian Horse typically stands 14-16hh. Most commonly black, they may also be chestnut, brown or bay. They are recognizable by their finely chiselled heads, arched necks, and long, thick, and often wavy tails and manes. They have sturdy legs with good bone, and have exceptionally hard, strong feet. They are renowned for their kind, sociable natures, intelligence and willingness to please. USES
Good natured and truly versatile, the Canadian can be found doing almost any type of equine discipline. Perhaps best known for their driving ability, Canadian Horses have won many prestigious driving awards including the 1987 North American Pleasure Driving Championship, the 1991 Grand Champion Whip at the Canadian Carriage Driving Classic, the Presentation Award at the 1997 Pairs Driving Championship, the Limit Preliminary Division at the 1997 High Country CDE, the 1998 Preliminary Single Division at Gladstone, and the 1998 Advanced Single Horse Championship at Fair Hill. Their calmness, hard working nature and people oriented personality makes the Canadian Horse ideal for use in the tourism industry. They can be found working at Upper Canada Village, African Lion Safari, Black Creek Pioneer Village, Ross Farm Museum, Fortress of Louisbourg, Colonial Williamsburg, Heritage Park, and the Cardston Remington Carriage Museum. Canadians are also used by the Montreal Mounted Police, Calgary City Police, and can be found pulling the Caleches of Montreal and Quebec City. Whatever the interest...Dressage, Hunter Jumper, Eventing, Endurance, Trail, Packing, Ranch Work, Mounted Patrol, Logging, Carriage Driving, Combined Driving, Wagon Rides.....There's a Canadian for Everyone!

Canadienne cattle arrived in Quebec between 1608 and 1660. This was the first cattle breed to be developed in North America, primarily from animals imported from Normandy and Brittany. This stock was blended on this continent and selected for hardiness and productivity in the New World. The Canadienne breed dominated until the beginning of the 19th century. Later, the breed was threatened by the introduction of larger sized British stock, before being taken in hand in 1883 by a small group of concerned breeders who formed the Canadienne Cattle Breeders Association. The Canadienne breed is still mainly found in the province of Quebec. The Canadienne is recognized for her hardiness and adaptability to inhospitable soils and climates. Born pale, the coat becomes black, brown, tawny or reddish-brown with a paler muzzle, side, and udder or scrotum. Cows weigh 1000 -1100 pounds, are long-lived and have a docile temperament. The meat tends to be lean, and the light bone results in a high dressing percentage. Their milk is also in demand for cheese production.
Lacombe pigs represent the first livestock breed developed in Canada, a hybrid of Landrace, Berkshire and Chester White. Developed at the Agriculture Canada RESEARCH STATION in Lacombe, Alberta, the breed was first licensed in 1957. Pigs are all white with drooping ears. They have a slightly heavier bone structure and are a bit fatter than the Landrace. The breed is not as popular as in the past and Rare Breeds Canada has raised concerns about low numbers in the national pig population.
