RED BLUFF, Calif. -

Red Bluff High School students are getting the chance to work with two registered quarter horse brood mares.

The horses were donated by a rancher from Oregon and they are expected to have babies in May.

Students from the CTE Vet Tech class will get a chance to be hands on with them. Students have named the horses lady Bug and Miss Rose. The students will study them and take care of them.

Red Bluff High School students said they are already enjoying having them on campus.

“It’s better than reading in a book, you get to understand what they go through, their growth and everything,” said Shylie Sedita, a freshman who will benefit from the program.

Her classmates agreed.

"You’re not just looking at a text book and learning about the animal you can actually be part of what they’re doing and have them part of your own life," said Justin Croman, a freshman at Red Bluff High School.
