We are babysitting two dogs right now, and one is a husky mix puppy.
The horses are getting quite used to a wild and crazy dog… or is the dog getting used to the curious horses?
I watched in amusement today has the puppy harassed Fiddle- barking, nipping, running circles around her- until Fiddle schooled her very gently in the proper way a dog should act around a mule. Then Satchmo, ever curious, came over and sandwiched the puppy between his and Fiddles noses until they had sniffed her to their content. Since then, this puppy has been, well- a bit more of a lady around her new tall four legged friends!
Hey- it’s great for the horses to get used to everything and anything in preparation for our trek- that they are oblivious to!
