Mossy Head's kindergarten class loved being ranch hands for a day at the Rocking B-A-B Ranch. This opportunity gave our students the ability to learn and interact with numerous animals at the farm. They learned about peacocks, chickens, hedgehogs, lemurs, camels, and so much more. Our students learned how to hold a baby chicken and how a lemur eats a banana. They learned how to a lasso a hay steer and rode on a tractor train. They enjoyed their lunch and a snow cone at the big red barn. Thank you so much, Rocking B-A-B Ranch, for an experience our kindergarteners will never forget!  Submitted by Elizabeth Gaither.
