Welcome to the Island Rambles Blog

Hi my name is Nora and Welcome to my blog world. This is a nature and birding photo blog about Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. I am trying to be a birder and I take photos of the birds and scenery I find. I hope you enjoy your time here and please come back again. PHOTOS WILL ENLARGE IF CLICKED. The photos are slide show enabled if you click on them. If you click on the top lighthouse photo it always takes you to the most recent summary list of my postings.

Horses At Saanich Fair

This is a picture of the horses at the Saanich Fair. This post is for 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.
