Penny Farthing Friday (animal edition)

It’s been a while since a penny farthing has made it up on the blog.  Using the survey that was posted last week as a guide, I came to find out that people other than myself have a soft spot for those beautifully dangerous machines of simpler times and harder skulls.  No promises as to the consistency of penny farthing posts, but we’ll give it a go.
