Bearberry’s Wild Horses.


A newborn foal.

Bearberry Valley, Alberta, Canada.

These photos were taken on a recent camping trip, you can see the post here.

The dam just kept on grazing and wasn’t bothered by us at all.

New study of wild horses launched

“Our study involving the samples from Wild Horses, submitted by volunteer donors has revealed some extremely interesting results. Here’s what we do know. Our horses here in Alberta, are not of “Canadian Horse” decent, such as the ones studied by the same researchers in the Brittany Triangle, in B.C.. However, the most interesting connection is that just like the horses in the Chilcoltins, both studies show a connection to Russian breeds. The B.C. horses show markers indicating a connection to the Yakut, from Siberia, and our horses here in Alberta, are showing strong markers indicating a connection to the Altai, breed from Russia.”– Help Alberta Wildies

    Wow, lovely photos of wild horses. I have never seen them live and not heard about them since I read Zane Greys’ books!

      I’m glad you liked them. I read Zane Grey’s books years ago, but I think I should read them again.

        Wow. How nice to read that You know Zane Grey! You are the second person who knows Zane, who loves nature and knows the hidden secrets of human people! I have them about 40-50 and read them during the years twice and some thrice! Thank You for this answer.

          The first books that I read were cowboy books, like Louis L’Amour. I used to read a lot of fiction, but now I read mostly about crafts.
          My better half still reads a lot of fiction, we are fortunate that Calgary still has a big selection of old and new books available for a good price at thrift-stores.
