Cody Barthels, 13, from Bear Creek School in Redmond loads his lamb named "Juan" onto the trailer that will take him to slaughter. Barthels has been raising him for around 3 1/2 months. He says "I've always wanted to raise animals. I just love animals a lot. Now I know a lot about sheep." Barthells says he wants to be a farmer someday.
