On May 11 the kindergarten students joined the FFA students for a farm field trip at Morgan’s Diamond D Ranch. They learned about horses, cows, baby animals, crops, roping, barrel racing, and played keyhole and goat tying. They had lots of fun and learned much. The FFA students loved helping the kids learn about animals.
At roping the kids used a rope that was just their size and roped a dummy calf. In goat tying the kids run after a goat and try to pull the ribbon off of the goat’s tail. They also got to meet and play with baby animals, horses, and calves.
The FFA would like to thank Diamond D Ranch for letting us come and letting us teach the kindergartners there. Thanks also to the kindergartners and their teachers for coming and letting us teach them. Thanks very much to the others who participated in this activity. Thanks again to all for holding this activity and letting us come and help teach the kids, and thank goodness this year no one got sunburnt.
