On Sunday August 19th, the Horse Spirits 4H Club had a meeting to focus on the study of the skeletal and muscular systems of the horse.  They used different colors of washable paint and brushes and painted a live horse!
On one side, they painted the various bones of the horse in their respective places.  On the other side, they painted the muscle groups where they belong.  We talked about the form and function of them as we watched the horse move on a lunge line.  A lot was learned and we had a great time doing it!
