Twelve newborn foals are expected this year at the RCMP Breeding Farm in Pakenham, Ontario, and they need help to name them.
RCMP are celebrating their 150th anniversary and is looking for creative names that start with the letter ‘W’
The foals could be members of the RCMP Musical Ride someday.
Up to 12 winners will be selected from across Canada.
To qualify, a participant must:
- be 14 years of age or younger
- submit a name that begins with the letter “W”
- submit only one entry
- live in Canada
- submit an entry by no later than April 21 at 11:59 pm EST
The winning foal names will be chosen later this spring – along with the contest winners – on the RCMP website and social media.
The children whose names are selected will each receive a prize pack that includes a photo of the foal they named, a certificate signed by the RCMP Commissioner and an engraved horseshoe made by an RCMP farrier.
