I found this DVD at the library and the kids just love it!  I think I’ll have to pick up a copy for them some time. LOL  The first part of the DVD is a farm tour for kids, the second part is an ABC of horses.

We are also watching these DVD’s on Ferguson tractors.  They are set in England so tie in a little with Peter Rabbit.  Dh also has a Ferguson tractor.  I gave him this DVD set a few years ago and we all love watching them!
