EXPLORING THE FARM: ALL ABOUT HORSES
ISPY in this Video
Ms. Jillian uses different brushes to groom the horse. How many did you count?
Do you remember the horse's name in the video? HINT: It is not Harriet.
DID YOU KNOW?
- Horses can sleep laying down or standing up, but many sleep standing.
- They live to be about 30 years old.
- Horses are measured in “hands”. One hand equals 4 inches and the average horse is 16 hands tall. How tall is that?
- A male (boy) horse is called a stallion, a female (girl) horse is called a mare, and a baby horse is called a foal.
- Horses have around 205 bones in their skeleton.
- They have bigger eyes than any other mammal that lives on land.
- Because horse’s eyes are on the side of their head they are capable of seeing nearly 360 degrees at one time.
- You can tell how a horse is feeling by looking at the position of their ears. Droopy ears mean the horse is calm and resting.
- Horses are able to sense emotion from humans, which makes them great therapy animals!
