Time, Kelp and Friendliness

December 14, 2010 at 5:42 pm 9 comments

This morning I made a major breakthrough with Griff.


He took some sheep treats from me.

Not out of the bowl.

Directly out of my hand!

Really. Truly.

Did my heart good.

Perhaps enough time has passed (he’s been here almost 6 months)

Or maybe he really digs the kelp meal I just put out for them and he’s saying “thank you”

Or maybe, just maybe I’ve just won him over and now he wants to be my buddy.

Whatever the reason,
this morning when he trusted me enough to come over and nibble some goodies he really made my day.

What a nice Christmas present 🙂

Edgar says “I think it was the kelp. Yum.”

    Yes Virginia, there IS a Santa Claus! If you believe, they WILL come!!
    Griff held out for a good long time, resisting the “Denise Appeal” but in the end, he could not help himself. Kindness, attention and love will win out!
    Congratulations, Denise!

    It is always so rewarding when the shy ones finally decide to trust you. Keep up the good work and enjoy your new friend!

      Thanks Nancy- I do hope that Griff and I become good friends. He’d been such a mystery to me up to this point!

    I can imagine it does make your heart feel good. Those little sheepies can really pull at the ole heartstrings 🙂

      thanks! I can’t wait to play with some of that long, silky wool. Shearing for the first time will be a big adventure, though!
