I suddenly thought that Dreki and Taktur hadn’t loaded into the van for a while and, as it is a useful (neigh, necessary) skill to have, it wasn’t one that should be lost or forgotten.
I brought inspiration.
He was a very good boy. The pea-sized brain cell whirred and clicked into life and in he walked.
His reward was a nice little visible bucket of mix and carrots.
A quick “worry” about the flappy door thing but Dreki had a good look and decided it wouldn’t kill him.
Oh, those ears! Click, click, whirr, whirr – you can almost hear the pea rattling around.
I put Dreki back in the field and caught Taktur who said he had never ever been in the horsevan, don’t even ask him, nope…. “oooh, is that a bucket?” and walked in.
I think we will keep practising this speshul skill. It can do no harm.
