"Horses: In an agricultural country, there is a constant demand for horses, a demand that has been accentuated by the European shortage. The number of horses in the West is about 2,731,996. Here are heavy draught horses on an Alberta farm."

Excerpt from "ACROSS CANADA BY C. P. R.", Section 4--The Prairie Provinces; booklet, McGill University Illustrated Lectures, 1928.
