Queen Victoria and Horses

From what little information I could gather, it seemed that Queen Victoria liked horses.  Queen Victoria loved all animals, but was very fond of horses, mules, etc.  I thought since today was Victoria Day (for the Canadians) I might share that fact with you.

  1. Queen Victoria certainly did love animals! She was very opposed to any form of cruelty to them and she took great care of her dogs and horses. Her children inherited that love of animals and, at the funeral of her son, King Edward VII, his horse and his little dog had pride of place in the procession.
