Jo is babysitting Mario Lanza, while his owner is on holiday (a wonderful chatty cockatoo!)
I had to meet him. So, via the girls who are in the hill park en route, I popped by to meet the bird.
First, I had a chat with each of my girls. It was good to see them getting their winter woollies on and interesting to watch how they interacted when I am around. Vitamin is still the head of this herd and she swings her pants at the slightest misdemeanour. They are all darling girls but I know that the geldings/stallion would never do that around me or if they did, I would not be nearby. Suffice it to say, I would never risk sitting down amongst the mares and fillies without a quick exit route planned. But that’s girls for you. I know that.
So let me introduce you to Mario Lanza. He is a lovely boy and I was instantly charmed by him. His vocabulary is good and so we chatted away while he threw his food on the floor, showed off and was perfectly enchanting.
This pic is for his Mum, who I know is missing him. She rescued Mario many years ago in Australia and he is her special boy. I can totally see why.
