A white Leghorn chicken captured Holly’s attention yesterday, strangely, Holly loves our noisy feathered friends and a white chicken with a dirty butt is a white chicken with a problem. I would have considered a white chicken with a dirty butt fairly normal but clearly said white chicken needed a bath...and a blow dry ( WHAT !!)… So there we were with a chicken in the sink, happily having a shampoo while our chicken whisperer used my hair dryer to fluff and puff her feathers. ( she is probably the egg eater I’ve been looking for !!).
The girls took a horse ride last night, Lady our big Shire mare instantly switched on the charm offensive when she spotted her handsome four legged companions and both Charm and Starbuck were more than happy to respond. Lady took the lead, tail swishing and teasing the boys. Starbuck’s lip curled and Charm danced. Both geldings wanted to be in closest proximity to the outrageously flirting mare, heads tossed, hooves danced and ears threatened. It was a fun ride…we all returned still attached to our four legged partners who were still fixated by Lady’s swinging rump but it was a close call !!!
I’ve got to go, it is way past barn time, take care, keep safe, M
