Norman’s next stop on his global trot was Ontario, Canada. As he cantered by the Otonabee river he stopped to have a closer look at the Peterborough lift lock. This lock was the first boat lift made of concrete and when the hydraulic device opens it lifts to more than 60ft. Norman watched the water gush by him and reflected on how happy he was to be in a place that is home to over 370,000 horses!
