MONROE - Do you know what part of the horse's leg is useful for identifying the horse? Or what is the most noticeable symptom of strangles? Or what is the nutrient that will be missed first in the diet? Questions like these and those covering topics, such as health, nutrition, showing, anatomy, reproduction, genetics, history and evolution related to the horse are what your Green County 4-H Horse Bowl team members strive to answer.

Four Green County youth, Chelsea Vogel, Hiawatha 4-H; Emily Seeling, Juda Jolly Juniors; Bianca Woller, Dayton Dairylanders; and Dana Karlen, Washington Center, recently attended the All American Quarter Horse Congress to compete in the National 4-H Horse Quiz Bowl Competition. The All American Quarter Horse Congress, held in Columbus, Ohio, is the World's Largest Single-Breed Horse Show, which receives more than 17,000 horse show entries and houses more than 8,500 registered American Quarter Horses during the three week schedule. The Congress attracts more than 650,000 people and brings more than $110 million to the central Ohio economy.

The Horse Bowl competition is one of many contests offered to test overall equine knowledge. The Green County 4-H Horse Bowl Team qualified to represent WI 4-H at this event by competing at the State 4-H Horse Bowl in May. Coaches for the Horse Bowl team are Roger Vogel, Nancy Karlen, and Danielle Nickels. The team received support to attend this national contest from the WI 4-H Foundation, WI 4-H Horse Council, Green County 4-H Adult Leaders and Green County Farm Bureau.
