In a colourful skirt adorned with stylized horses, Trina Mather-Simard clutched the beaded halter of a gentle mare that was more interested in munching grass than meeting visitors.
It was a bright and windy spring day at Mādahòkì Farm and the five resident Ojibwe Spirit horses were full of energy. The mare — named Kitagokons, or fawn for the colour of her coat — was busy tearing at the new grass, while a handsome black gelding named Makwa (bear) watched from a paddock. His three brothers frolicked in a muddy field nearby.
