Longmont Leader: Local farmers show students where they get their food

The chickens were interesting and everyone wanted to know how bees make their honey. But the big star at Wednesday’s farming show-and-tell at Columbine Elementary was Westley, a 16-month-old horse who likes to show off a bit.

“Oh he loves it,” said Westley’s owner, Niwot High School senior Lilly Thomas. “He also likes little kids.”

Curious students at Columbine were enamored with Westley, peppering Lilly with questions about Westley’s diet, where he came from and what exactly Westley does all day.
