Week 4

Week 4, right, so handling again.
By now you should know the drill -
Theory: handling - 3 animals - Goats (nearly conquered that fear), Rabbits and Guinea Pigs . yep so interesting.
Practical: feeding and cleaning, took Guinness and Wendy the old arthritic goats in to the paddock.

so it's all quiet for the next three weeks then.

See y'all then.

Week 3

So week 3.
This week, theory was our last assignment. To handle four different animals, Helen chose them of course.
Well, we handled a goat each - the sight of my old friend, the goat who head butted me in the back of the knee, obviously made me feel a whole lot more comfortable having my back to a goat - a piglet, no complaints here, and some fully grown pigs. so overall a good lesson.

The practical was just a simple affair of cleaning out the hot arid room (snakes and reptilians) and feeding the occupants.

Overall a great day.
