Catch me if you can

We had another house viewing today which meant house cleaning took priority over paddock cleaning which I don't like!

Hopefully the family liked the house, I know the daughter was very impressed with the two kittens and then even more impressed when they went to have a look at the land and Lady Godiva came over to introduce herself, closely followed by Ochre - you can tell they are both Golden Guinea progeny.

Since the boys moved onto fresh grass at the weekend the field shelter has become a bit of a trophy possession. What once had room for all five boys now seems to struggle to fit more than one! Gianmarco seems to have taken over it and refuses point blank to share, although when I went out this morning Loki had managed to squeeze himself in.

Anyone who has read the meet the herd section of our website will know that despite being a big girl, Veruschka holds a very low ranking within the herd. I have noticed the last few days Kazuo seems to have taken a fancy to her and is trying to mount her whilst orgling. Needless to say as Veruschka is (hopefully) pregnant to Gianmarco's Masterpiece, who is actually Kazuo's dad, she is not at all impressed and runs off . The only problem is this then makes the rest of the youngsters think it's a game so she ends up with about 10 cria chasing her which puts her in a panic.

House selling is one of the worst experiences in the world! Hope things are sorted soon. Little Greeves has taken over one field shelter and for some reason no-one pushes him out. They must realise he is not too strong yet!
