"AUTUMN CARRIES MORE GOLD IN ITS HAND THAN ANY OTHER SEASON." ~JIM BISHOP~
"THE DAYS MAY NOT BE SO BRIGHT AND BALMY-YET THE QUIET AND MELANCHOLY LINGER AROUND THEM IS FRAUGHT WITH GLORY. OVER EVERYTHING CONNECTED WITH AUTUMN THERE LINGERS SOME GOLDEN SPELL-SOME UNSEEN INFLUENCE THAT PENETRATES THE SOUL WITH ITS MYSTERIOUS POWER." ~NORTHERN ADVOCATE~
Yesterday was a sad day here at Dog Trot Farm....Willa... a two year old Barred Rock... one of my original ten hens... passed away.... When a hen dies....one of the most difficult questions is why?....How can a healthy hen go to death's door in such a brief period of time. A case of here one minute and gone the next. Willa exhibited no external symptoms until her last few moments...She was a well loved hen...side kick to Gladys... bearer of beautiful eggs....and quite a looker....Willa was buried in the flower garden along side her sister's... Pip and Georgia...she will be missed.
