Grooming

Everybody needs companionship and a little tactile attention.  When Bow goes out into the backyard in the outer pens, he likes to watch Brownie and Leo at play. They don't just play separately. They interact with each other and even engage in affectionate nuzzling.

Teyman, on the other hand, cannot be in the back yard with Brownie and Leo, because she insists on attacking Leo. So Teyman and I go on our solitary walks around the property.
We watch cows grazing.
Teyman gets petted along the way, so she also does not feel too isolated or forgotten.
Around three-thirty, if Bow wants a snack, he can ask for one. Usually it is an apple, and the redder the better.
After the snack, sometimes Bow grows sleepy. Sometimes he naps. Sometimes, after the nap, he likes to be groomed.

Everybody enjoys a little tactile attention. Bow is no different.

  1. Wow that is really pretty pasture land. It reminds me of the stories Rose Wilder Lane told about their family home in the Ozarks.

    1. Thanks, Julia. The pasture with the clouds over it and lots of undergrowth is mine. The nice, well tended pasture with the cows grazing is a neighbor's. But, yes, I think this area is very beautiful, both when cultivated and when we let it grow wild.

    2. I like both the wild and cultivated lands as each has a purpose.

    1. Thanks, Victoria. It's not often I have either a picture or a video of so many different family members in the same post.
