We are delighted to introduce to you all Jean, who is a mule that lives at Town Barton Farm. Jean knows her own mind and likes to do things in her own time! She won't be told when to come in from the field and she won't be told when it's time to move barns. Nor will she be told when it's time for the farrier... unless your name is Matt!
We discovered Jean’s devotion towards Matt when we were trying to bring her in from the field one day. She just wouldn’t budge - even for food! Nothing was working and time was getting on. Then Matt came along to see what all the commotion was about.
All he did was call her name and to our surprise Jean trotted happily up to Matt and followed him into her barn! This was the start of a magical relationship. When Jean sees Matt walking past the barn she’ll hold her head up high and flutter her eye lashes at him.
We're pretty sure if Jean could talk she would want Matt to be her valentine, so we're doing it for her.
Happy Valentine’s Day to Jean and her beloved Matt xx
