I've gotta try the Cheerio thing, I'm going through little wafer treats like crazy.. She isn't sure about carrots yet but will nibble on an apple.
I'm definitely beginning to see just how strong she is. I'd really love to teach her to pull a cart. How stinkin' cute would that be?? That's an obstacle for later though.. She's getting used to the scratching and will let me pick up her two from feet, haven't tried her hind feet yet because she's still really iffy about me being where she can't see me. I basically just treated the whole situation as I would imprinting a new foal. Scratches all over, rubbing her ears, nose, sticking my fingers in her mouth... She actually really likes me to stick my fingers in her mouth and scratch her tongue and rub her teeth. She's never offered to nip or bite.. Even though she had tried to bit the goat a few times when he's in the way or is in "her area" of the hay trough. She's funny about that, it's *her* corner...
I'm already becoming quite attached to the little booger... At first I just shook my head about it but it makes me pretty happy when she trots up to the fence when she sees me coming then tries to cookie rob me... Plus her cuteness level is way up there.
Any advice or ideas on how I should do things or neat things I could teach her? She's proving to be very smart and I don't want her to get bored and come up with schemes of her own.
