The rain has been missing us for a few weeks now and now the grass is not great fodder. We want to give some of our paddocks a rest, so we tried to put our stud Enrique in with the other boys today.
Previous attempts to do this had not gone very well, but lately we have been feeding Enrique next to the other boys (separated by a fence) and he seems to be accepting them, so we thought we'd give it another go.
The operation was "oiled" by copious amounts of hay and we were all ready to step in and separate them... Instead they just went past each other like total gentlemen, with only a quick snort exchange and swapped paddocks.
Later Enrique returned to his dwelling and found the boys there... Silly Bakr, our junior stud, tried to mount Enrique... NOT a good move! Enrique put him in his place and all seemed good now... We'll see in the morning!
All the chooks and Jamie came to keep them company and all seems well. Happy day on the farm!
