Elements from the left hind foot of a small horse, probably Equus conversidens Owen, are reported from a few miles southeast of Medicine Hat, Alberta. The bones were found below a buried soil contained within an eastward-striking glacial spillway. A date of about 8000 y B.P. is suggested for the specimens on stratigraphic considerations. If this date is correct, these bones probably represent the youngest indigenous fossil horse known in North America.
