On the Farm

Domingo the foal

On July 11 at 10 a.m. our group took a field trip to B & B Farms. We couldn't have asked for better weather. Ms. Schellie showed us her new chickens and her adorable cats, which the kids couldn't get enough of. Then we were allowed into the fenced area to see her horses and this is where we learned about the age of horses, the types of horses and various other information. Next we met a miniature horse and were allowed to pet her. We also watched her jump over a hurdle. After petting the horse we moved over to the barn and learned all about the stables, the different equipment used for and with horses, and we even went inside one of the stalls. Finally we ventured out into the ring where the horses are trained. We were able to catch a glimpse of a new foal and her mommy. What a great trip based around horses.
