Default Sine/Cosine Word Problem...Need Help...Please!?

Deer jumps over fence
With graceful leaping beauty.
Sine curve models height.

Six feet above ground,
Each leap requires 1 second.
The equation, please?

When t=o
The deer is over the fence
At its maximum height.

I dont know what the period would be for this problem. Can someone help me find the sine and cosine equation(curve) for this. I don't know if it wants the cosine or sine equation. It would be nice if you showed the steps also. Thanks!
