There has been such an outpouring of love and concern and sympathy for poor Brig and it's heartening to the unit, I know, to reallise that so many people feel their pain. I found out today that the University of Guelph has started a memorial fund in Brigadier's name: You can click this link to read it for yourself.

Gifts made in memory of Brigadier will be directed toward The Brigadier Memorial Fund at the Ontario Veterinary College to support clinical care for horses at the Large Animal Clinic.

Thank you to everyone who sent messages for Brig. He won't be forgotten. Posted by Picasa

Thank you so much for putting this information out for us. It's sad that an animal gave his life in the line of duty, but it is encouraging to see the love outpouring in his memory. Maybe something good will come out of this, even if it's only an awareness of how much animals contribute to our lives everyday...

Brigadier has earned his wings..and now lives at the Rainbow Bridge...there's no crime there...:)

Thank you for posting this wonderful tribute to such an amazing horse!
Such a senseless tragedy! I wish Kevin Bradfield a speedy recovery. My deepest sympathy and prayers to all who were blessed by Brigadier.
God Speed!

What beautiful memories you have of Brigadier and probably so many other patrol members, both human and animal. I cried ......... so you must have tears on your keyboard. The site is a wonderful tribute and will prove to affirm the strength of the human-animal bond. Your photo of Brigadier and his rider cantering into the sunlight reminds me very much of the painting done in tribute to the four fallen RCMP officers: a female officer mounted on her horse, both with heads down while four black steeds race off with joy into the distance. I can imagine a similar depth of feeling will be expressed, felt and conveyed to Const. Kevin Bradfield and every member, worker or visitor of the Toronto Police Mounted Unit. Brigadier died in the performance of his duty and will not be forgotten. Val Carp, Ontario
