Autumn 2010 OHC #3: Mammal Study

OHC Autumn OHC

The Outdoor Hour Challenge #3 was a mammal study: compare the horse and the dog. 

The girls looked at horses at the county Fair and a local historical farm.

IMG_0715We discussed the difference between the horse and dog:

  • Toes – the horse has one
  • Neck – long to graze
  • Legs – long for running – right from birth
  • Hair or coats – mane and tail keep biting flies away
  • Eye placement – on the side of their head to view all around
  • Tails – keep away biting flies




My youngest daughter’s paint pony.  She is 5.


We compared the horse to our 3 dachshunds.
