An ex-racing horse and a chicken have struck up a stable friendship and now do everything together – from riding to sleeping.
Phez the chicken first arrived at Homefield Racing Stables about a year after she wandered down the driveway looking a little disheveled.
Owner of the stables, Lynn Winks, said they couldn’t tell if she was a chicken or a peasant and as such earned the name Phez.
They put her in the stable in Barnsley, South Yorks., with one of most placid horses George- and since then she hasn’t left his side.
The pair spend everything night together with Phez not only sleeping in the same stable but actually on George’s back.
