Today was the day ! There were 5-6 of them- ages 8-12 , I believe. Some true horse lovers and some who merely liked horses in the group. I told them about horse care, stable care, saddles and bridles, some famous horses and more. They got to groom my old App mare , Alli who totally enjoyed herself pestering the girls. Then we handed out some home made horse treats- and gave some to the Percherons who were inside the barn. They got a laugh at Evie who got to try a fajita of peanut butter and brown sugar I think. She liked it after much tasting - and then wanted more, please ?? We didn't want to create any colics, so the horses only got to have a little taste of the Horse treats brought along. I hope to have helped some horse crazy kids become yet More interested in learning .
Here are some shots of the girls learning about horses :

Thanks for a fun day, gals !
