The Bay Way with the Texas FiveI sat with the Texas Five yesterday morning and evening when I fed them. I laid my horrible hand in the feed tub and the girls got touched. But not Cleopatra. She declined the Feast of the Human Hand and would rather starve. We’ll see how long this lasts. I was able to touch them on the side of their faces, and a few got their back scratched.

The four ewes I got back in August (not from Ridgetop) were really wild. It took the owner a few weeks to get them in their trailer (I didn't have a trailer at the time) I didn't spend time like you are and all four wouldn't even come close to the wild category any more and they all will take treats from me (thanks to everyone here saying "animal crackers" ).I think this they may always be a little spooky. But at least they aren’t bouncing off the wire like they were. They do recognize me as the bringer of FOOD and that’s a plus.
