Enrolling in a horse project requires you to take responsibility for the health and safety of
your horse and yourself. Should problems arise, where would you go for help in making
informed decisions about your project?




                                                                         PROJECT AGREEMENT:

     I will be responsible for feed, care, and management of my horses. I will keep good records and finish my record book to complete my project. I will be
                        responsible for management decisions concerning the health, welfare, profitability, and product quality of my project.

  As a parent/guardian or supporter, I realize that youth animal projects require a considerable amount of expense and labor. I will support this youth in his/her
  efforts and allow him/her to learn as much as possible from the experience. The 4-H member is expected to be responsible for labor, care, and management
                                    decisions affecting the project. I will help where needed by giving guidance and instruction.

 1.) How many horses do you plan to have?



 2.) What breed(s) of horse(s) do you plan to have?



 3.) List two traits important in your selection of the
breed(s) you are using.


 4.) What will be the three main ingredients of your
horse(s) ration?



 5.) What is your projected feed cost per horse?



  6.) If you plan to exhibit at a fair, do you plan to be
in a showmanship contest? Why or why not?


  7.) Name one thing that may affect the profit or
loss of your horse project. Why?

The records you keep in this book will help evaluate your progress in meeting personal and project goals. This is why it is important to keep good records. You

Expenses are the costs that go into your project. More pages may be added as needed. Each time you buy feed, grain, hay or even rent pasture, these items
need to be entered on this page. On this and the following 3 pages, each item will be entered in the total column. If horse is boarded, feed costs should be
calculated separately from board cost and included on this page-put the board cost as a non-feed expense.

Attach tags from all complete rations and supplements you were feeding during your project. If more than one page is needed, add an additional page for feed tags
of that project or each additional project. If you feed a custom ration, attach the formula and the tags from the supplements that were added. If you feed roughage
ONLY such as hay, list the nutrient values for your roughage below. If you have actual values from a custom-feed analysis use them or the estimated nutrient
values from the Livestock/Horse Records User Guide. (4-H Horse Project manual Pg. 37)

Inventory the items or horses that you have at any point in time. Normally he first day of your project year would be the beginning inventory and the last day
of your project year the ending inventory. Fill out one inventory that includes items for all projects. List all items that are in your possession on the beginning day
of your project year and indicate their value. At the End of your project year, enter all items that you have, including any that were purchased during the year and
remain in your possession. You should have entries at the beginning and end of the project year. Continue using this page for future years by adding the ending
inventory for each additional year. Add additional pages as necessary. You must show a beginning and ending inventory somehow. If it is your first year in the
project and you started with nothing, your beginning inventory is zero. Check with your county Extension office for your year-end date.

                                                                 Write a story about your project(s).
                The following questions may help you in composing a story related to your project. Include the following information in story format:


                                         * Why did you choose each project?
                                         * Did you learn what you had hoped to learn?
                                         * Did anyone help you?
                                         * What did you like the best about each project?
                                         * What would you do differently?
                                         * How will you use what you learned this year to improve your project next year?
                                         * What results, difficulties or challenges did you have with this project?

                                                                 Length and Format Guidelines
You can type or hand-write your story. If you hand-write the story, use pencil or ink on lined white notebook paper. If a typewriter or computer is used to write the
story, use plain white paper using 12-point font. Leave a wide enough margin so the story can be read if inserted into a report cover.
Remember: this section is used as a tie breaker so do a good job on your story. The better your story the more points you will receive.


           Story must be a minimum of one (1) page to a maximum of two (2) pages specifically related to your projects!

                                                        Attach your 4-H story at the end of the project record.




                                                                   PROJECT PICTURES
Attach up to 2 pages of pictures per project; a minimum of four pictures per project is expected with no more than 5 pictures per page.
Pages should be attached at the end of the record. You should be in the majority of pictures.
Pictures must be project-specific and should have a caption that describes what is occurring in the picture.

LACK OF PICTURES WILL BE AN AUTOMATIC RED AWARD AT BEST!
