Students who live in towns, cities, and suburbs—whose experience with horses might consist of watching the Kentucky Derby on television or driving past sprawling, white-fenced horse farms—might be very curious to learn what life is like on one of those farms.

KET offers students a chance to discover more about farm life with this electronic field trip to Margaux Farm in the Bluegrass region of Central Kentucky, United States. Host Kim Gray of the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture and co-host and colleague Craig Wood are joined by several guests, including a large-animal veterinarian; a farrier; and Steve Johnson, the owner of Margaux Farm.

Throughout the program, both the hosts and their guests answer students' questions, like ...

  • What makes the Bluegrass region so good for raising horses and other livestock?
  • How is hay baled?
  • What's a farrier?
  • What is a typical day like on a horse farm?
