Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The animated, amazing adventures of kids and their horses who come together in an incredible place called Horseland. As these friends strive to become the best competitive riders they can possibly be, the kids (and their equine companions) must learn to deal with difficult situations and confront an array of problems that put their honesty, their integrity, their self-confidence and sometimes even their friendship to the test. On September 17, 2011 at 12:00pm, WNEM-TV intended to air its rescheduled episode of Horseland II, which had been preempted because of CBS's coverage of the US Open Tennis Tournament. Due to technical difficulties, however, the station aired Doodlebops instead. Program aired 7/2/11-8/27/11 and 9/10/11.

Include any other comments or information you want the Commission to consider in evaluating your compliance with the Children's Television Act (or use this space for supplemental explanations). This may include information on any other noncore educational and informational programming that you aired this quarter or plan to air during the next quarter, or any existing or proposed non-broadcast efforts that will enhance the educational and informational value of such programming to children. See 47 C.F.R. Section 73.671, NOTES 2 and 3. After due review of internal station records and documentation provided to us by program suppliers, the licensee hereby certifies that the station fully complied with the FCC's commercial limits in children's programs, as specified at 47 C.F.R. Section 73.670, with respect to all programs specifically designed for children ages twelve and under. In addition to the educational or informational programs listed in this report, the station broadcast the following programs specifically designed for children ages twelve and under that were not core programming: "The Outdoorsman" (WNEM-DT2, Sunday 4:30P-5:00P: 1/1, 1/15, 1/22, 2/5, 2/19, 3/18 AND 3/25/2012. The station did not broadcast an analog signal during this quarter. The licensee's response to Question 7 (b) therefore assumes that the station's current main program stream serves as the equivalent to the Station's former analog channel.
