Sacred Heart of Bayside had quite the exciting experience. Sergeant Bigg, father to a current student, spent his day off by bringing his partner, Constable the horse, and another officer accompanied by his horse, to Sacred Heart. Sergeant Bigg is part of the NYPD’s Mounted Police Unit and covers areas like Central Park and Times Squre. He shared how their jobs work, gave some fun facts about the horses, and even let students feed them peppermints, carrots, and jelly beans. Msgr. Machalski and Mrs. Cooke showed the students the proper way to feed horses and helped students do so accordingly.
