Graves Hi Ag Dept experiences 1st birth

Graves County High School’s Agriculture Department has maintained livestock for the past several years, including at various times: five horses, three pigs, six chickens, three rabbits, a dog, and a coy pond. But what happened in the early morning hours of March 25, 2013, was a first. That night, this mare gave birth to this filly. Teachers Richard Horn and Kelvin Howard sent students Austin Champion and Kyle Feagin to check on mother and daughter at mid-morning. Both students said the mare is gentle and trusting of them and other people she knows. The livestock barn is located next to the Graves County School District’s central office and on the same sprawling campus that includes Graves County Middle, High, and Central Elementary schools. GCHS students have hosted younger students from throughout the district’s eight elementary schools numerous times. The livestock provides opportunities some students otherwise would not have.
