My “favourites”:

My favorite animal (that cant be a  house hold pet) is a horse. I like horses because you can ride them and they are soooooo cute.  I have always loved horses and wanted to take lessons.   My family up in north Carolina have a few horses and I have only ridden one of there horses (Amerita)!  I really want to go back and ride each of them.  I want to ride flap jack first(kinda looks like the picture below).

did you know???

  •  there is 75 million horses in the world
  • A healthy adult horse should have a pulse of between 36 and 40 beats per minute
    while at rest
  •    A horse typically sleeps two and half to three hours a day
  • A horse’s heart weighs nine pounds
  • No two horses are identicalThe left side of a horse is called the “near side” and the right side is the “off side”
  • A horse has approximately 205 bones
  • A horse is described as a ‘foal’ for its first year of life
  • Foals have milk teeth, which are replaced by permanent teeth around 3-5 years
    old
  • A horse’s teeth can be used to estimate its age
  • Horses generally dislike the smell of pigs
  • A female horse is called a ‘filly’
  • Horses are traditionally measured in ‘hands’, this was originally the width of a man’s
    hand and has been set at 4 inches

 

History

Genetic data, interestingly enough, has traced all extant domesticated horses to one founder stallion, or to closely related male horses with the same Y haplotype. At the same time, there is a high matrilineal diversity in both extant and wild horses. At least 77 wild mares would be required to explain the diversity of the mtDNA in current horse populations, which probably means quite a few more.

Horse history can be traced back to a prehistoric animal, the Candylarth. About the size of a medium-sized dog, they had five toes on each foot and thickened nails. These extinct animals were ancestors to not only the horses, but to all hoofed animals.

The evolution of the horse itself can be traced to an animal known as the Eohippus, which lived about 60 million years ago. The modern horse is the direct descendant of the Eohippus. They lived in the Americas, Europe, and Asia continents. At that time there were land bridges connecting these continents

How do we know what the Earth’s interior structure is like when we can’t see it?

we know about the earths structure because of seismicgraphs.  Scismicgraphs are ways that go through the earth.  the s wave only goes through solids and the p wave goes through solids and liquids.  the s wave does not go through all of the layers so there has to be a liquid.  p waves go through solids faster and and it slows down when it goes through liquids.  so the p wave went fast and the wave gets a little curve  while it goes through the outer core and that wave get behind.
The bigger the core the bigger the shadow zone. The shawdow zone is where the s waves cant be recived on that side of the planet. The shadow zone exist because the mantle and core are composed of different material P waves refract as they travel through Earth. the p wave also tells us where the core is and how big it is. It tells us how big the core is by the reflection off the core.

 

blog challenge # 6

I did blog challenge number 3 and you cant post an the website so I am going to do it here.  I learned alot about the use of water.  I do not use kgs or most of the measurements on there so i had a hard time and i got 3 questions right so i didn’t do good.  I was so suprised to see the amounts of water and things we use.  you should really play the game to do with water.
