Animal Care at MDS



Animal care is an integral part of the curriculum at MDS. Each day two Elementary students accompany a teacher to the barn to care for the llamas. This entails giving the llamas food, fresh water, and harnessing them to bring them to the outside area where they spend their day. For the first time two of our Upper Elementary students harnessed the llamas without any assistance from a teacher! It was wonderful to watch the girls care for the llamas in such a gentle and loving way.
