Friday the FFA students of Lincoln Community High School took a day out of their classrooms to do a little teaching of their own.

The group brought in kid-friendly animals from the farm and spent the day at the Logan County Fairgrounds, running a petting school for Lincoln area elementary students.

Kids from kindergarten to fourth grade were brought in from the various schools in shifts. Each group was allowed plenty of time to go from stall to stall in the show barn, visit the animals, touch them, and ask questions about them.

These guys ham it up for the camera.  Officially, though, they helped lead tours through the barn, making sure the kids saw all the animals.

Everyone get a chance to pet the rabbits.

A nice hug for the good bunny who has been petted by over 300 pairs of hands by lunchtime.

The goats get a little personal attention from a young student.


These guys have seen the rabbits, goats, sheep and pigs. Now to move on to the cattle and ponies.
