I received a couple of interesting stories the last couple of days. One was about a horse that met the passenger train in Oba on a regular basis. This horse was allowed to roam free and showed up at the railway station to meet the train. He was rewarded with treats by some of the passengers.
Apparently this horse also liked snowmobile seats...he chewed a seat off one of the MNR sleds parked in front of his owner's residence one winter morning.
This horse was owned by the Smedts' family in Oba. Mrs Smedts would tie an orange ribbon around it's neck and tail ...she didn't want her horse mistaken for a moose.
This story was sent to me by Mrs. Bonnie Smedts from Wawa. I'm hoping to post a picture of this horse shortly!
