Tomorrow we are going to visit horses at the Therapeutic Riding
Stables. For the past several weeks of school we’ve been preparing
for our visit.
One week it was our sign in question. The majority of children
do like horses.
We dug out all our horses from the animal baskets and set them up
in different play scenarios around the room.
I’ve been collecting hobby horses from thrift stores and set them
out last week. The older children loved to ride around them room.
The younger children loved to get up close and nuzzle.
And then I noticed that the older children were feeding their
horses the wood pellets in the sensory table.
It got us talking about what horses like to eat. Today for snack
we had horse food; apples, carrots and hay (shredded wheat).
There was a bit of neighing going on.
