Pony Anatomy!

10 May

This is my third installment of animal anatomy in simple visual terms. My hope is that these illustrations are appealing and manageable for children to begin to gain brief insight into internal anatomy and inspire discussions about how our decisions as owners effect them. The inner workings of our horses and ponies are important. Our choices of feed, environment, and equipment have an effect on their well-being inside and out. We personally have chosen to keep our horse barefoot to help his hooves flex more freely and pump blood more efficiently to his heart. He gets fed simple grains, grass, hay, minerals, vitamins, fruits and vegetables that have not been overly processed.  We keep him in a clean, well ventilated barn when he is not outside to keep his respiratory system running smoothly. These are just a few small examples of choices we make externally that make a large difference to how well our horse’s bodily systems can function.
