Another year, another challenge!
Each year, Professor Karen Hersch challenges Classics department students to make a horse themed treat. These baked goodies serve as an homage to the October Horse, an ancient Roman practice of sacrificing winning chariot racehorses. The “Ides of October” were held in honor of Mars, the mythological god of war and guardian of agriculture.
Our own CJ Bowden has won this year’s October Horse Challenge for her ghastly creation “My Little Decapitated Pony.” Second prize went to Molly Scullion for her terrifying “Choco Head,” followed by Karen Hersch with her horse cake “Depression in White.”
Please come to Latin 3 class in 342 Anderson Hall this Friday, November 6 at 1pm to watch as the Silver and Gold Prizes are awarded.
