The Hens For Hire Experience

As seen on TV - We were featured in a series of ‘Our School’, which began airing on Tuesday, 3rd September 2019, on the CBBC channel.

We had a whole episode chatting chickens with the wonderful year 7 class. In this episode, you’ll see how the students are quick to engage and how much they can learn by interacting with Chicks and Hens throughout the whole cycle. It’s a great example of what the Hens for Hire service is all about. To learn more about our service, contact us today.

Top pony handler Natasha had a horrid car accident on Sunday. Good news she is ok but sadly we have had to put a hold on this weeks Festive Pony Days. We will be back fighting fit in January xx sending Natasha big healing hugs xxOne of my sisters sent me this today. Why? Because whilst travelling back from Bath on Sunday someone decided to turn right straight into me 🙈. I am ok, just feeling bit shocked, sore and bruised with whiplash and dashboard knees; nothing that rest and time will not mend. 😏So with this in mind I am closing Shepherd's Rest for this week. Taking some of my own advice! I shall keep you all posted but aiming to be ready for you all next Monday. I am of course able to action any requests for Gift Vouchers ....keep em coming!! 🙏Lots of loveTasha xx ⚘🌿😍 ... See MoreSee Less
