Photo of the Day: Thanksgiving Turkeys in May
Half a year ago Apple and Cider, the two turkeys pardoned by President Barack Obama at last year’s Thanksgiving, came to Mount Vernon to make their permanent home at the estate. Although they were on display for the holiday season, we had to take them off site afterward since they’re not a historic breed. Their white feathers and giant, butterball bodies are nothing like the small, brown turkeys that would have roamed Mount Vernon in George Washington’s day. Apple and Cider, both of whom are in good health, spend their time at our behind-the-scenes farm facility, where they live next to a few coops of historic hens and roosters. Sure beats being neighbors on a plate with some yams and cranberry sauce.
