Goats like carrots.
….should like carrots. You’d think. Zip checked it out.
She had to sniff it real good. Then she said no.
Shortcake may or may not like carrots. She wasn’t sticking around for a snack.
I had the halter looped around my arm. I was experimenting just to see if she would flip out from nothing more than a halter. If I didn’t even look at her or approach her. Just had the halter with me. Zip will follow me around like a dog.
But Shortcake? She’s a suspicious one. She saw the halter and took off.
I gave Zip a peppermint treat and left without giving Shortcake a second glance. I knew who would like my carrots.
I’ve just been trying to warm up Shortcake so far. I’d like to work with her in a smaller space, but right now I don’t have one. I do think I need a smaller space if I’m going to get anywhere. If she’s got the run of the back barnyard, all she’s going to do is wear me out. I’m also thinking about moving Zip out to the pasture with Jack and Poky, leaving Shortcake with only one friend–me.
A while back, when Glory Bee would run off when she’d see the lead rope, I’d just carry the lead rope with me all the time until she stopped noticing it. After she got used to seeing me with it all the time, she didn’t even have a fit when I’d snap it on and lead her around. Not sure whether or not Shortcake would react the same, but I can’t have her running every time she sees me with a halter. That’s not very handy!
