Girl Scouts: Learning About Horses


Last Friday our Girl Scout troop headed to a nearby farm to learn about horses. This was a science lesson at its best - live animals and hands-on learning.
Lisa and her daughter taught us about horse anatomy and horse care. We discussed what horses eat, how to brush them, how a farrier cares for their feet, what gear you need to ride them and much more.

Then each of the girls were able to lead this little horse around the yard. My daughter did this 3 times, she loved it so much!

My son and I also took the little horse around the yard. Here my son was fascinated with the bigger horse that we did not see close up on this visit.

Yeah for horses and lessons on a farm!
