The "Girls" pause in their running for a kodak moment with Nana , they're given a ticket each time they pass the start and these earn points for their faction.
After the running we jumped into my car and had a drink and a snack, they had fresh strawberries and a chocolate cake with them and I added a banana each.....bananas have been as dear as $17 a kilo here after the Queensland Floods at the beginning of the year so we haven't been eating them! Then we drove to the shop and were welcomed by Kristie...I took a few photos after admiring the clean cages and healthy, calm pets for sale...there are puppies, rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, fish, budgies, finches and weiros, my favourite small parrot. The shop has an emphasis on horse gear so there was plenty of that too.
Even a vintage horse magazine from 1971...
My friend, Natalie, is involved with an animal shelter in Michigan, USA, and the very sad tales she tells of beautiful animals abandoned, mistreated and then euthanised make me angry and sad....please consider the need for neutering your pet before you buy a dog or cat.
