Canada’s Sable Island is home to the feral Sable Island Horse. They
likely descended from horses that were brought to the island for grazing
in the 1700s. Pony-sized at only 13-14hh, the typical Sable Island
Horse has a dark-colored solid coat, narrow but deep-chested body,
strong legs, and long mane and tail. The island’s horse population
historically ranges from 200-500 horses.
