So this is a horse knowledge quiz competition. Winner gets a smileyface
a round of applause
and the privilege of putting "Horse Knowlege Competition Winner" on their signature (if they want)
. The questions will start out easy and then get harder. If you don't know the answer to a question, you can either not fill it in or fill it in with something goofy. I will ask you PLEASE do not look up the answers on the internet. If you have a horsey book and you want to see if the answers are in there, that's great! But I want this to be educational as well as fun for everyone and if you look it up on the internet, the answer is less prone to stay in your memory. So anyways, have fun, and here's the questions!
