dc.description.abstractThis thesis develops a narrative for the horses and mules of the Canadian artillery units and ammunition columns, while consequently expanding that of the soldiers serving alongside them. Carrying out mounted, draught, and pack work, these animals played an invaluable role in military operations and greatly impacted daily life. Immense effort was made to preserve the wellbeing of the horses and mules, although casualties were considered inevitable. The evolution of the acquisition, training, and transport practices of these animals and men is examined. This is followed by a general analysis of the labour performed and the working conditions, with specific battles given as case studies. The daily care that went into the horses and mules and the relationship between man and animal is also addressed. Finally, the negligible impact of mechanization is discussed.en_US
