High School Principal Takes Care of 12 Horses


A principal from a Montana high school found himself in a bit of a situation after having to take care of 12 horses that students rode to school. According to an old Montana law, “if a student rides their horse to school, the school principal has to feed and tend to the horse throughout the day.”

Naturally, as a prank on the principal and to see if he would comply with the law, 12 students picked a day to ride their horses to school. They completely surprised Conrad High School Principal Raymond DeBruycke. In accordance with the law, he managed to take care of the animals throughout the day, ensuring they had enough food and water.

Conrad Public Schools captured the hilarious moment and posted it on their Facebook page, ending the post with: “It looks like Mr. DeBruycker has his work cut out for him today….” Taking care of 12 horses for an entire day is certainly not an easy task.

Multiple parents and others within the community commented on the original post to share their thoughts on the matter.

One person wrote: “The principal and students connect in a very positive way. Good management.”

Another commented: “It’s one of the oldest laws on the books for Montana. Love it.”
