Today I have fun colors for everyone! Each horse has its unique color that they were born with, though it may change slightly as they age. Can we find each of the Program Horses' colors on the chart?
See if you can get them all correct!!
I will add the answers to the pictures by Monday!
Today, we look at all of the outside parts of the horse! From Nose to Tail - and everything in between - we can learn what everything is called on a horse. Then, try to figure out where the part would be on a person! While we may not have a hock or a tail, we do have an elbow (or 2!), shoulder, neck and hip. Practice all of the parts on a toy horse, so you can impress your horsie friend when next you meet!
There is a good website that shows a more in depth picture of the horses' anatomy, plus pictures of a horse skeletal system and teeth. If you have more questions - please check out the following site:
Yesterday the horses went out to the pasture for the first time in 2020! To keep our three pastures in good condition, the horses are kept off until the grass reaches a certain height - and then we rotate through them all spring, summer, and fall. The horses start on just a short time and then over a week or 2 they are up to being able to be out all night. They LOVE their grass!!
Psst... Please excuse how hairy and muddy the horses are, there are not many of us able to groom them at the moment. They will be sleek and shiny in a few weeks!
