Show some love
As previously mentioned, your girls are
obviously spoilt with treats, but we wanted
to know how you show them they are loved
in other ways… and here’s how you do it:
I scratch their necks and backs.
• I give them organic food, and wood
ash to bath in.
• We give them large branches of red or
white currants for them to strip bare.
• I allow them to mess up my garden
and I don't care!
• I grow plants as treats for them to eat.
• I dig the soil with them to find worms and
grubs; they get excited as soon as I pick
up the fork and come running over to me.
• I sit on the garden bench and let them
jump up and eat mixed corn.
• I pick lots of grass, dandelions and fruit
and veg and talk to them. If they want
love and a cuddle that's a done deal.
• They are part of the family and have
everything we have. Treats and care galore.
• Tickle them under their armpits.
