This is the second in a series of five horse project activity guides for youth. Levels 1-3 focus on "horse-less" activities, while Levels 4 and 5 zero in on riding and horsemanship. Each guide has an achievement program to encourage youth to learn and develop life skills. The assistance of a horse project helper in completing the achievement programs is very important. In this guide, youth learn about horse behavior, detailed anatomy and basic care practices for horses. Activities include: pony up to the salad bar, body condition scoring, bad hair day, and long in the tooth. Youth will find interesting and exciting activities in this guide. They will learn about horse nutrition, equine teeth, purchasing decisions, judging horses and much more. This guide contains the following chapters: (1) Anatomy; (2) Nutrition; (3) Horse Looks; and (4) Sizing up. Glossary and resources are included. [For related guides, see ED540778, ED540781, ED540782, and ED540779.]
