Today we opened up the gates and let OLLIE and the old boy Percy graze together.
This takes time, however Percy knows what to do better than we do:)
They have been getting to know one another over the fence for two weeks now, and so; the time has come for Percy to work his magic and bring OLLIE into the next step of his re-hab.
OLLIE stared at Percy ‘in awe’ for some time…thinking..
” One day my butt will be that big! ”
Then he decided to muster up all of his courage for the “approach”!
So OLLIE approached Percy, then froze waiting for a reaction….there was none!
This continued for the next few hours, Percy made him move away if he felt bothered by OLLIE . After a few hours OLLIE got bored and took the opportunity to explore the back paddock.
We will put them together again tomorrow and maybe I can get a pick of them grazing together!!!
Percy is a tough nut to crack but he knows what he is doing and we trust him to do what is necessary… he will have OLLIE on the road to becoming a “Jolly OLLIE” in no time.
