Owl Experience

My grandson, Jacob, adores owls. At the Robin Hood Festival they have a stand with owls.
As it was nearly his third birthday we decided to treat him to an owl experience.
It was marred slightly, by the floods of tears, when he had to give the scops owl back.

This is so precious, Carrie. You will treasure this photograph forever. Now send us one of the tears that followed! What a great experience for the little ones, to actually hold and pet an owl. The ones in my back yard are huge – and would probably terrify a little one, up close!

What a lovely photo Carrie and one to cherish. How gently Jacob is stroking the owl, I can understand the tears at having to give it back.

I’ve seen beautiful owls on English TV shows like Yorkshire Vet and Escape to the Country (two of my favourites!) and we have lots of different varieties here in Australia. Although we live in a rural area we don’t see them often but it is very special when we do. I’m glad Jacob had such a wonderful experience and I’m sure it will stay with him forever.

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. Only club members can read posts submitted into a contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!

Gems Stories are public:  On the other hand the Gem stories are different, since there is no voting on Gems. During a Gem event, your friends and fans can come on and read without a SignIn. This is one of the great advantages of the Gem events.
