This little girl, Honey Bun, got well but lost some ground (weight wise) in the meantime.
She is with her "age group" but she is the smallest (and she is not all that bright) so she struggles.
It was time to step in. Help her pick up the pace and gain some weight.
So I started by sneaking her a bite of grain when the big honchos weren't looking.
BUT HoneyBun was uneasy with her new found bucket of goodness because she pines for her BFF.
Oreo looks after HoneyBun and HoneyBun adores her.
Oreo's first act of freedom was to scarf down the rest of HoneyBun's sweet feed.
*note to self: will need to have TWO buckets of sweet feed from now on. (sigh)
HoneyBun says, "thank you farm lady for bringing Oreo to me. My life is good now."
Oreo says, "yeah, thanks! I could get used to this life outside the pen. BFF's rock!
