Summary:
For over half a century, the Canadian Army and a herd of wild horses shared a home at CFB Suffield, a sprawling military base near Medicine Hat, Alberta.

Abstract:

For over half a century, the Canadian Army and a herd of wild horses shared a home at CFB Suffield, a sprawling military base near Medicine Hat, Alberta. An odd arrangement, perhaps, but one that seemed to work. The animals and the military managed to stay out of each other's way on the 1600 square kilometre base, which often served as a training ground for the troops, tanks and artillery of the British Army. Today, however, the horses are gone -- victims not of bullets or exploding shells, but of the limited ability of the endangered short-grass environment to sustain their increasing numbers. After much controversy and protest, the 1200 wild horses were rounded up and dispersed across the country in a horse adoption program. Horses of Suffield chronicles the dramatic and emotional story of their fate and explores the environmental factors and decisions that spelled the end for Canada's largest herd of wild horses.
