I had a wonderful morning visiting the rescue bebbies who are staying with Jo at the moment.
They have changed, not hugely, but they are happier and very engaging. I was investigated, snogged and nibbled by three very pleased-to-see-us little colts. They like people and see them as the food factory, which is fine. I am very happy to oblige.
There is no need for any head collars as they just follow like dogs, coming when they are called and easily bribed with a bucket.
Still no muscle or change in shape. They remain pitifully thin.
Their fur has buffed up more. I thought about buying rugs but that will just flatten their coat and stop it naturally coming back to health. It was nice to see them grooming each other.
They have their stable which they can pop in and out of. Jo has placed a strategic sheep hurdle to stop any investigations. They do sleep in there lying down during the day. All three together. They are very much a group. No one has an independent thought.
Storm (InATeaCup) has come out more. He is very chatty and loves being stroked or scritched. He was leaning up against me and suddenly lost his balance almost going over. We want to trim their feet but they are not strong enough for this yet.
The bebbies have three meals a day and now have their own separate buckets for this as they all need their own ration. I think Storm would lose out if it came down to a competition.
The darling bebbies are changing in character and that is the first step forwards. They are like little shaggy dogs with enquiring minds always offering the benefit of their experience!
