Dear Fiona
It has been a pleasure to meet you and your animals. Dan has been the most beautiful horse, Mary is a lovely Sheep, the Brown Sisters, (hens), I love feeding the Chickens and most of all the Guinea Pigs and Peter, the Rabbit. I loved feeding them every morning. Thank you so much for letting us stay. Our cabin that we stayed was so comforting and I loved making the fire every night. Also thanks for letting us know about the Mulberry tree. The berries are very tasty. Thank you for everything. I will miss you a lot. Mikayla Baxter September 2015
