Horse at Broadacres Preschool

A friend's daughter went to this pre-school that this lovely horse belongs to. The kids learned about animals and helped with the "farm" chores. An amazing experience -- at any age.

That is a good thing for kids to learn. Much better than a class hamster or goldfish!

When I was in elementary school a family that had their property back up to the school yard had a horse. I was always a little horse crazy. I would spend my recess over by the fence watching the horse. It was right in the middle of Compton so there wasn't any place for them to ride except on the streets, or maybe the playground after school. Zoning must have really been different in those days. - Margy

I see that the Belgians are now selling horse milk. It's low in fat, supposedly.

My horse has a blaze like that, but her star has more symmetry. Her registration papers say "Star, strip, snip" which means a blotch between the eyes, the river down the nose, and a little white blob over the lips.

Yep, seems harder and harder for young ones to gain some exposure to those basic values of living with nature and animals.
Lovely photo in the rain.

This would be a better way to learn. Horse are so gentle.

I like the colors in your photo, the blue/green wall, and the chestnut color of the horse.

My children and I visit those horses nearly everyday.
Aren't they so sweet :-)

What a beautiful animal. It would be an amazing experience. Good for kids to learn about responsibility.
