Olga, Olaf and Ollie could be some of the names picked for RCMP foals that were born in the spring. Officers are looking for a name that starts with the letter “O” and comes from a child 14 years old or younger.
A pick will come from each of the 13 provinces and territories and for the first time, a classroom from across Canada will be picked to name the 14th horse as a group.
Winners will be announced April 30th and they will receive a prize pack from the RCMP including a framed photo of the baby horse.
Names will be selected by instructors of the RCMP Musical Ride Branch. Children can enter their picks on the RCMP website.
