Henny Penny!!!!

A little true story I heard yesterday about a sister of Abbey's, named Penny!! Penny's owner Dónal got a few new hens recently!! On three seperate occassions Penny carried a live hen to their back door, where she left it unharmed and stress free(quite tame birds!!) The little hens just walked away and are now laying eggs as if nothing happened!! I hope Penny continues to be that gentle in future!!;o))

She was 2nd in her class and graded very promising(good enough for me!) But the rest of the day was super, she did lots of meeting and greeting both 2 legs and 4 legs. She would have gone home with everyone she met!! She… Continue
