Carl was waiting by the barn doors when I arrived this morning, and came walking towards me as soon as I entered the pasture, then followed me right into the barn.
He was a bit skittish about coming in any further than the donkeys' stall, but eventually couldn't resist his feed any longer and settled right down, even letting me brush past him to feed the sheep and Spritely. In fact, when he was done, I had trouble getting him OUT of the barn - I think he has his days and nights confused!
Carol, I did add some alfalfa pellets to his grain this morning as he missed dinner last night.
Spritely did not eat all her breakfast and was very slow moving this morning - she isn't holding her bad leg up but it is not looking good and she is walking on the toe of it and dragging it. I will check it right after work (or as soon as I can get home) today and call you if it has not settled back down with exercise.
Oh, and Edna has taken up with that little black and white rooster (is that Jerome?) (I think it's a rooster - what do I know about chickens?:) ) . They were strutting around side by side this morning - cute!
