Horses in the Classroom

My 2nd grade classroom has been studying the 50 states this year. As we study each state, I give them some facts about each state. Once we got to Kentucky, the subject of horses, horse racing, and Secretariat came up. I could not resist showing them a video of Secretariat's Triple Crown win (even though the Belmont Stakes does not take place in Kentucky). I NEVER get tired of seeing that video!!! My students could not BELIEVE that he was going that fast and were actually cheering him on as the video played! I feel like such a horse "nerd" but that moment gave me so much joy to see my students so excited about horses and Secretariat. Ahh...it's the little things in life. Sorry, I just had to share. Anyone else have these moments of pure joy? :)

That is so special! I love when little kids really get into horses. I've got another proud horsie owner moment - the school bus for the elementary school drives by our house around three-ish. One day, we heard a cute little voice scream, "Hello Ponies!!!" Out the window! The horses were obviously in the from field by the road. It was so funny!
