Pictured above are four of the eleven Clydesdales that were among the first of the saved animals to arrive at Dog Tales sanctuary, on the 19th Sideroad of King Township, opposite Thornton Bales Conservation Area, late in 2014. There was also an Arabian and a mule.
Pair of young Shires and one old Belgian saved
Two young Shire horses and a big and heavy, but lame, Belgian draft horse are the newest residents of the Dog Tales/Horse Haven 45-acre farm on the King Ridge, between Dufferin and Bathurst Streets. The three horses were purchased at auction and were likely saved from slaughter, after possible purchase by "kill buyers". Passersby can get a good look at the equine retirees but are warned not to try petting the animals, as they may bite. They are indeed magnificent creatures to behold.
