Wild Horses of Sable Island

What do ya know? 2 doors down from our hotel in NYC at 13 Crosby St. is a gallery showcasing beautiful pics of the wild horses that inhabit Sable island. My husband remembered as a child doing a school project about this remote island full of of sand dunes and meadows about 160km just off the coast of Nova Scotia, one of many places our Canadian elementary schools taught us about. Sable island was once home to a small community of people who settled in the 1700s, over time they disappeared and what remains today are small herds of wild horses whose ancestors once farmed the land, nearly 400 of them roaming free. The photographer, Roberto Dutesco told us there are now only 2 people living on the island. The land is protected by the Canadian Coast Guard with access restricted to preserve the pristine nature of the island.

If you’re in the city, check it.
