OH and I took BeAnne and Loki for a walk on Sandness beach and then we popped by to see the bebbies.
The bebbies were enjoying the sun and were running about like fleas on a hotplate. It was lovely to watch and we sat in the car just off the road encouraged at this playful activity. That was until little Silver suddenly vanished out of sight. He had fallen and was lying in a ditch halfway under the fence. OH and I immediately jumped out of the car, clambered over the fence to try and free him. Poor thing was completely stuck and not moving. I straightened out his front legs, and then rolled him onto his stomach while OH grabbed him round his tummy to lift him up onto his feet. Once righted, Silver walked off looking rather embarrassed, if filthy.
So we went on with the Meet n’ Greet and Jo appeared. We decided then and there to move them over to a bigger park where they can exercise, play and eat. It has a shed for shelter too.
So while Jo got their lunch mixed, I took some photos.
You can see that they are barely bigger than Loki and/or a chicken!
Anyway, food is the way to their hearts and they devotedly followed Jo across the road to their new field.
They will be able to run about far more safely now and, although there is not much grass, they will continue to be fed three times a day with ad-lib hay too. I noticed that their feeds are much bigger now and they enjoy every last morsel.
So here are some photos from today. The bebbies are far more energetic but still don’t have the strength to get themselves out of trouble. Silver was very lucky we turned up when we did but no harm done and, when the grass starts to grow, they will bounce about even more.
(and no matter how many bowls you have, it is still never enough!)
