    Henrietta had been bare backed for a bit. Don't know if it's a molt, or Mylo gettin jiggy wid it. But, anyway, got a hen saddle from luvmychix. Here is Henry sportin her new threads!!

    She's a cranky old hen, in fact she's the one I got in the spring that I had named "Osama Been Layin" when I first got her. She became Henry after she settled in and is not quite so mean. I couldn't believe it when she let me put the saddle on her with no fuss, or no attempts to bite.

    I guess the cranky girl knew she needed the saddle. Cute pics.

    We prefer the words "apron" or "shawl" instead of saddle. So much more lady-like and genteel. Not so much of a Yee-Haw concept, even if the roosters are mounting the ladies with spurs....
