Good Behavior Results in Harvest Party, Horse-drawn Hayride

A pair of pretty Belgian horses named Donna and Dena took some Southeast Kelloggsville Elementary School students on a hayride around the school yard.

Students were awarded for good behavior with a harvest party, complete with horse-drawn hayride followed by apple cider and doughnuts. Donna and Dena are owned by Gary Cavanaugh of Alto, and the wagon is owned by Seymour Gould of Byron Center.
