I went to see the Minions with my new plan. Writing everything down yesterday helped me to see the way forward.
I moved Vitamin and Fivla into the next door field where the spring grass is growing. This is what Vitamin needs and will hopefully help her weight loss.
I was not popular.
But I cannot let the Minions have spring grass. They are fat and I don’t want them to get laminitis ever again.
So I am being cruel to be kind.
I asked Fivla not to raid Vitamin’s bucket and she happily acquiesced, glad to see the lovely grass.
Once the ladies had finished their food, I nipped up the hill and moved the wee enclosure over the fence into their field.
The ladies were very happy. I had worried they would mind leaving their herd behind, but no….. grass and being in the next field is fine, apparently.
I popped back this afternoon just to see how things were and to see if anyone had jumped over (Waffle was threatening), and the ladies were happy enough – they had come up the hill for a drink. The boys had not left their complaining spot. It looked like a picket line protest so I ignored it.
