Justin Morgan Had a Horse
Field Trip to a friend’s house who has 4 horses:
Even the baby loved the horses!
The girls and T loved brushing him!
This is what he did as soon as all the dust was brushed out of him!
We learned that horses walk, trot, and canter.
What a great end to some interesting looking books!
