4th Day in Quinter

February 9, 2012

Today in Quinter, I saw and toured Paramount Seeds, and the Jamison Ranch with the other exchange student from San Francisco named Hannah. At Paramount Seeds, we learned about the production of wheat, barley, and oats, and toured the workrooms and warehouses. After stopping back at the school for lunch, Hannah and I were picked up and taken to the Jamison Ranch. There, we rode out 10 miles to the southern pasture to feed some of the horses. They followed the truck while we were throwing out the feed, and some of them even stuck their heads through the windows! Once we drove back to the main barn, Hannah and I got to ride one of the horses. Western saddle is a lot different than English saddle.

We drove back to school just before it ended. I met Katherine and we joined her friends at the Soda Fountain (it’s like an ice cream parlor) for some yumminess. Tomorrow I will be going with the girls basketball team to St. Francis, a school 2 hours away, for a game.

This is one of the machines used for moving grain.

(I had more pictures, but my camera died while uploading them. I’ll put them in tomorrow.)

  1. Hi Lily! We read your blog during homeroom today! Sounds like Quinter is great. It actually snowed here too yesterday. We noticed you found a cat…it was drawn to you I’m sure. Great pics. Thanks for sharing!
