There is an island, made of sand, sitting quietly in the northwest Atlantic Ocean, 160 kilometres from the mainland of Nova Scotia. Although many have never seen it, the island is revered by the people of Nova Scotia, mostly because of a population of wild horses that have lived on the island since 1750s. I first came here from England in 1996 to study the ecology of the grey seal. Since then, I have visited this unique and unlikely place each year; it provides a wealth of inspiration. Here, I share my interpretation of the wild horses of Sable Island.
