    @Lynne, the moodle site says "Incorrect access password, please try again".

    Same here. Invalid user name and password.

    @Elvin relax! Lynne is trying to make it more organized for us.
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 3,074 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    No need of a user name @Bubbly, we have to use the guest access with the password given.

    @Lynne Vocabulary Challenge is for advanced learners only? To be honest, I know just a few things from this picture :/

    @Rema - Just write down the numbers of the items you do know. As other people take part you will also learn.

    At the end of the challenge I will give you the answer key. :smile:
  • RemaRema Posts: 1,151 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Lynne Is it permissible to use a Google help or only to write words which we have already known? :D
    Marko
  • TeachTeach Your Teacher HomePosts: 10,051 mod
    @Rema - it's not a test, it's a challenge. Google away. :smile:
  • RemaRema Posts: 1,151 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Yes obviously I make mistake with compost. Even though it is also natural fiertelizer, it's got by decaying plants. According this is next stable probably it is dunk or manure (solid waste from animal used to fertilize land).
  • makimaki Posts: 136 ✭✭✭
    yes wheelbarrow. I learned something new.
  • makimaki Posts: 136 ✭✭✭
    stone chips. but maybe even subbase. It's hard to estimate from picture. Subbase is made of bigger stones mingled with (not consolitated actually of) soil. Stone chips comes in different granulations.
  • makimaki Posts: 136 ✭✭✭
    5. should be more stall, couse stall is compartment in stable where single animal is confined, bat stable is whole building.
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @maki I think stall is a better word than compartment. :)
  • makimaki Posts: 136 ✭✭✭
    @Bubbly I thing this is also good way of learning english. I am aware I make many mistakes, but I have already learnt many stuff when saw @Bubbly and @Monik answers.

    Well done everyone: Here is the actual key. Remember - there are often ways to express these things, without knowing the exact word.

    1. bucket
    2. tack room
    3. horseshoes
    4. halter
    5. stall / loose box (BrE) / box stall (AmE)
    6. hay net
    7. stable yard
    8. wheelbarrow
    9. paddock
    10. bit
    11. bridle
    12. reins
    13. mane
    14. riding hat
    15. saddle
    16. jodhpurs
    17. riding boots
    18. crop
    19. stirrup
    20. manure / dung heap (BrE ) / manure pile (AmE)

    !Note - A jockey is someone who rides in horse races, especially as a profession.

    A riding hat is a kind of helmet, but in the UK we would call it a riding hat. In America they might say equestrian helmet.

    We use the word equestrian for anything related to horse riding.
