ATHENS, Ga. -- The University of Georgia plans to pay about $2.6 million for a 660-acre farm that is home to the famous Iron Horse sculpture, reports the Athens Banner-Herald.

But the horse, which sits beside Georgia Highway 15, is not part of the deal, the newspaper reports.

According to documents submitted to the state Board of Regents, "The Grantor will reserve an access easement to a 400-square-foot property containing an iron horse statue."

University officials will ask the board to approve the sale at its Tuesday meeting in Atlanta, the Banner-Herald says.

The farm will replace UGA's 522-acre Plant Sciences Farm in Oconee County. That farm is being sold for $11.4 million, the paper reported.
