Premier cheval en Nouvelle-France

Saviez-vous que le premier cheval est venu à Québec en 1647?
Il fut embarqué sur le navire français ''Le Notre-Dame'', parti de La Rochelle au printemps, arrivé à Québec le 25 juin.

Embarqué clandestinement, notre ancêtre Urbain Tessier, qui va changer de nom pour Lavigne, n'a pas signé son contrat d'engagement au port de La Rochelle.

Il débarque à Québec en même temps que le premier cheval!
