    Hey Abbey,
    I really like the way you wrote this! Even though I knew all of these I think that some one that didn’t know much about horses would really like this post! Did you know that the Colossal Squid has the largest eyes of any animal in the world? That’s a weird fact that I know off by heart… Weird right?
    Have a wonderful day,

      Hello, Kayley
      Thank you for reading my post on horses. I did not know that a Squid has the largest eyes of all animals in the world! I was interested on what they looked like, (now knowing that they have the largest eyes) so I looked on google and they are humongous! I defiantly would not want to come across one of those in the ocean! How did you find out that they had the largest eyes? from a project? Goodbye and have a nice day!

      Hello Fatoom, (again)

      Where is Bahrain, Jedhafs in? The South East? I must have said something wrong in my last comment to you, because I meant I do not have middle schools, but I have elementry. I really like cats too! I have a cat myself, named Milo. I also have two other pets, they are dogs named Leo and Piggy. Do you have any pets? What does simply nailogical mean? Is it a person, a thing, a animal or something else? Goodbye and have a nice day!

      Sincerely, Abbey

    Hi Abbey,
    I really like your post about horse facts. I didn’t know I didn’t know that horses reject sour things like lemons I also didn’t know that horses with red ribbons kick. My favorite animal is a German shepherd tied with a Bengal tiger. what is your second and third favorite animal?
    have a great day and keep on blogging, Thai.

    Hi Abbey,

    You know I like horses too! When we first started going to the barn I was scared of the horses and couldn’t believe you and Ambar (and Carla!) weren’t scared at all. Now I can’t wait to go to the barn every week with Ambar to see Sage. And P.S. Sage loves sugar cubes!

      Hello Alli,
      I did not know that you where scared of the horses when we first started going to the barn! I never have been scared of horses. I would go close to a horse any day! Is Sage your favorite horse there? As you probably know, mine is Cheyenne but I also really loved Jasper! I do not know where Jasper is now though, I haven’t seen him for a very long time! I wonder where he went to….. Thank you for commenting Alli, I hope you comment to me again soon!
      Sincerely, Abbey

    Hi Abbey,
    so you like horses who would have thought. Do you horseback ride in competitions or do you just do it for fun. I have a few questions about horses though. Can they hear in higher or lower frequencies. will horses eat fruits or just grass I don’t know why but as soon as I saw your title Horses I wondered that. well have a good day of blogging bye.
    sincerely Gavin

      Hello Gavin,
      Thanks for commenting on my blog (even though you kind of had to).I do not really know what frequencies a horse hears in, but I will make sure to do some research and get back to you on that one. I am not to sure what other fruits they can eat, but I know they eat apples. some of the other stuff I know they can eat are carrots, grass, hay, sugar cubes and much more. Goodbye and have a nice day!

      Hello Gavin,
      I have been in two riding shows/competitions before, and I was really nervous with the judges correcting my every move! I was also really nervous because I thought I might forget my jumping course, but I never did. I do not know if they hear in higher or lower frequencies, but I will make sure to do some research and get back to you on that one. I also don’t really know that much food they eat, but I do know they eat apples, watermelons, bananas, carrots, sugar cubes, hay, (grass of course) and tons more! Goodbye and have a awesome day!
      Sincerely, Abbey
