I'm so happy to find a thread about Canadians!! I live in Quebec so they're pretty common here, but I'm surprised that they haven't become more popular elsewhere, because they're awesome! Not only a great family or all-around horse, but very sound, easy keepers, smart and sane :) The barn I used to manage had one as a school horse; she had quite the personality but was a wonderful horse all the same.
So cool to see the chestnuts, too.
