When Horses Fly generated discussion among students who usually are uninterested in many videos I show in class. I was very shocked that these students responded so strongly. I am still trying to figure out the mystery of how izzit has been ablr to capture their attention so easily!

The students were not aware that horses were flying at all. This was a real eye-opener. There is so much involved with transporting the horses and the students were amazed when they learned about all the people who care for the horses during the flight and the long hours they put in during the process. All of this is possible because of the invention of the jumbo jet and innovative horse owners in the USA and Japan as well as in other countries.
