Horses At Saanich Fair
Camera Critters. You can find lots of other great animal photos there. Why do we love horses so much? They are an irresistible force to me....like a magnet I am drawn to them. The Saanich Fair started in 1868 and is Western Canada's oldest continual agricultural fair. The fair grounds consist of 70 acres and around 45,000 people attend the fair. I love the draft horses and the old time farm equipment. Do you love horses like I do? There is something universal and comforting about horses.
