In Hyde Creek, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, a 25 year old horse named Beau patiently stands in his regal pose for his portrait. Beau is in the safety of a fenced area amidst a green and verdant countryside.

Horses (Equus Caballus) have been domesticated by man for approximately 3,000 to 4,000 years and have formed a working partnership in many pursuits. In sport, they interact in both competitive and non-competitive situations; in police work, the imposing presence of a horse is effective in crowd control; in agriculture horses have pulled plows and helped to feed the early settlers who opened up vast areas of Canada; and the gentle, non-judging nature of a horse is useful in therapy situations, building confidence and forming bonds between human and animal, sometimes the first bonds the human has ever developed. In exchange, horses are provided with veterinary care, food, water and shelter.

Horses live between 25 and 30 years of age and to see a horse at whatever age enjoying fresh air and freedom in a rural setting, rolling in the grass, running only for the joy of running is an experience not forgotten.
