The Horse and His Boy Lapbook - Homeschool Share


Meg Murry, her little brother Charles Wallace, and their mother are having a midnight snack on a dark and stormy night when an unearthly stranger appears at their door. He claims to have been blown off course and goes on to tell them that there is such a thing as a "tesseract", which, if you didn't know, is a wrinkle in time. Meg's father had been experimenting with time travel when he suddenly disappeared. Will Meg, Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin outwit the forces of evil as they search through space for their father?

Jo is a gifted archer with a burden on his back and a fire within. Eager to see the Longtreaders receive justice, he travels from his Halfwind Citadel home to a Cloud Mountain poised on the brink of war. What he finds there will confront his convictions and test his resolve as the war begins and King Jupiter's heir is revealed. A kingdom in the balance. An arrow aimed at the heart of darkness. Who will take the shot?

At the beginning of his three-year-old year, Secretariat was syndicated for a record-breaking $6.08 million on condition that he be retired from racing by the end of the year. Although he sired several successful racehorses, he ultimately was most influential through his daughters' offspring, becoming the leading broodmare sire in North America in 1992. Secretariat died in 1989 due to laminitis . His daughters produced several notable sires , including Storm Cat , A.P. Indy , Gone West , Dehere and Chief's Crown , and through them Secretariat appears in the pedigree of many modern champions. He continues to be recognized as one of the greatest horses in American racing history.

That fall, Chenery and Elizabeth Ham, the Meadow's longtime secretary, worked together to name the newly weaned colt. The first set of names submitted to the Jockey Club (Sceptre, Royal Line and Something Special) played on the names of his sire and dam, but were rejected. The second set, submitted in January 1971, were Games of Chance, Deo Volonti (God Willing) and Secretariat, the last suggested by Ham based on her previous job associated with the secretariat of the League of Nations (the predecessor of the United Nations). [11] [19] [20]

Secretariat grew into a massive, powerful horse said to resemble his sire's maternal grandsire, Discovery . He stood 16.2  hands (66 inches, 168 cm) when fully grown. [21] He was noted for being exceptionally well-balanced, a big, powerful horse described as having "nearly perfect" conformation and stride biomechanics . [22] His chest was so large that he required a custom-made girth , and he was noted for his large, powerful, well-muscled hindquarters. An Australian trainer said of him, "He is incredible, an absolutely perfect horse. I never saw anything like him." [23]

Secretariat's absence of major conformation flaws was important, as horses with well made limbs and feet are less likely to become injured. [24] Secretariat's hindquarters were the main source of his power, with a sloped croup that extended the length of his femur. [25] When in full stride, his hind legs were able to reach far under himself, increasing his drive. [26] His ample girth, long back and well-made neck all contributed to his heart-lung efficiency. [25] [26]

The manner in which Secretariat's body parts fit together determined the efficiency of his stride, which affected his acceleration and endurance. Even very small differences in the length and angles of bones can have a major effect on performance. [27] Secretariat was well put together even as a two-year-old, and by the time he was three, he had further matured in body and smoothed out his gait. The New York Racing Association's Dr. M. A. Gilman, a veterinarian who routinely measured leading Thoroughbreds with a goal of applying science to create better ways to breed and evaluate racehorses, measured Secretariat's development from two to three as follows: [23] [28]

LAUREL, MS   –  The “WE, The People” – CCABLAC –   Change.Org Petition (13,000+ signatures)  asked the Laurel (Jones County) MS public to  “Boycott Cruel Abuse To Tennessee Walking Horses At Laurel Charity “Big Lick” Horse Show…

This Video, made by dedicated animal welfare advocates at “The Magnolia Center” on Saturday, March 3, 2018, proves that they did just that.

It is also a reminder that the Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”) can never be brought back by those who want to do so:

Coincidentally,  the sad Video might be the impetus for writing   “The Perfect ‘Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Song”.

All the elements necessary to write the  “Perfect “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Song”   were present this past Saturday night at “The Magnolia Center”  in Laurel (Jones County) Mississippi.
