Horses and donkeys have long been favorite animals on New England farms. We will discuss the history and care of these animals and examine their importance in the development of Connecticut agriculture. Students will then meet the equines of the Heckscher Farm and learn more about them through hands on experiences. Limited to 10 participants. Children may not be dropped off for this program. All participants, including adults escorting children, must have a ticket. Children under 6 may not register for this program.
