- Science fair project: horses color blind (spraypainted grass)?
- Q: For my science fair project (im in 10th grade) I would like to see whether or not horses see in color and which colors they prefer by spraypainting sections of grass certain colors, putting the grass 15 feet away from them and each one a few feet apart, and seeing which grass the horse goes to. I would obviously not let the horse eat it since that would be unhealthy, but i would stop the horse a few feet away just to see which one it goes to. Would this be a good experiment to test horses' vision, and if not what errors does it have? Any other ideas? also is this age appropriate (I'm in 10th grade).thanks!
- A: sounds like a great idea , try painting the grass with edible paint so the horses can actually eat it, and you might have flaws in your theory because a horse can probably still smell and recognize the general shape of grass and go to any one of them even if they're colored differently but in theory it sounds like a good idea even if the horses go to any patch of grass the chance of them going because of the smell is under 30% i guess so that's a pretty good chance of success for your plan.

- Horse science fair project: are horses color blind?
- Q: I am doing a science fair project for 10th grade and since i love horses i was thinking i could do an experiment whether or not horses see in color, and which colors they can see the best. How would a design an experiment that would be accurate, and not just leave the horse to choose a color randomly? I was thinking i could have buckets the color of the rainbow and put a small bit of grain on them, see which one the horse goes to 1st. then i would change up the order and do it again so its not just the closest one. Would this work, and if not any other ideas? Also since this is a 10th grade honors class, it needs to be age appropriate, so would this experiment be sophisticated enough or is it too elementary? any suggestions would be great, thanks
- A: Horses have limited color vision.Get buckets of different colors. Always put the food in one color. Only let the horse try one bucket (take one away when he moves towards the other. The horse should go to the color bucket first once he's learned which color has the food. Once you've established the color association, change the buckets to another shape and see if he goes for the right color first.
