Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. HORSELAND is an animated series about five girls and two boys who live in spectacular countryside that houses a farm called Horseland. Each of these main characters has a special horse whose personality is similar to its owner's. Horseland and its unique approach of integrating the personality of the main characters and animals serve to reinforce prosocial themes. Horseland is also a "coming of age" series in which viewers experience and learn from the social interactions, hopes, dreams, and even fears of this group of culturally diverse adolescents. From this background, the experiences of sharing, caring, compromise, friendship, respect, and competition emerge to provide the young viewers with social and emotional guidelines for better understanding many of the life-lessons they need to learn as they grow and develop. This program is specifically designed to further the educational and informational needs of children, has educating and informing children as a significant purpose, and otherwise meets the definition of Core Programming as specified in the Commission's rules. Due to technical difficulties on April 2nd WHNT was unable to air the last three kids programs; Trollz, Horseland I and Horseland II. WHNT scheduled and aired the three missed kids programs, Trollz, Horseland I and Horseland II the following Saturday, April 9th following the regularly scheduled kids programs. WHNT's DOC made the decision on 4/2 to rerun the first three kids programs to prevent us from airing in black.
