Default Henry at 10 weeks

Henry has been here two weeks and two days. It seems longer but in a good way.

He is coming along just fine. He is growing well, he is now 8kg and he has beefy forelegs.
His confidence is growing in leaps and bounds, he is very curious but still wary yet. He has been up close to one of the horses (a fence in between them) and the look on his face was 'WOW! it's big'

His house training is doing well no poos indoors but still the occasional wee. Most time though he goes out into the garden and he knows what "wee wees" means. The recent good weather has meant that I can leave the garden door open and he takes himself out most times. I send him out every time he's had a nap...
...and the routine is kicking in.

Walking out is coming along nicely. He usually follows Hollie and knows what 'come on' means although sometimes there's this scent that's more interesting.
Lead training is doing well and he is now used to his harness....
This is necessary because there are Badger sets where we walk and the scents on the tracks leading to them appear to be irresistible to him. I don't know for sure weather they are Badger or Fox tracks but I don't want him going down to the sets.

Hollie is a lot more tolerant with him now, I saw them playing together in the garden.
Where before Hollie would not touch anything the pup has had she now checks to see if he's left any treats in his den, if he has - tough.

Angels...




Stay tuned for the next instalment.

It's never too soon to get them use to livestock. I take my pups into the field to see them as early as possible. (The farmer knows both me and my dogs, so knows I'll not allow anything to happen.) Later I'll sit them beside me in the field and wait for them to come over. Both sheep and cattle are nosy creatures so will soon arrive to see who's in their field. (Although at the moment the sheep are lambing in our fields so I keep the dogs well clear.

Great to hear Hollie is more relaxed about things. It's a big upheaval for them too.

Totally agree John.
Unfortunately there are no sheep anymore near here so that will have to be in the future - the last of my sheep died at Christmas, he was 15 years old.
I no longer have hens either so finding any livestock other than horses is a bit difficult.
There may be bullocks in a near field later in the year but most fields are now for cereals or hay.

Henry will have to be OK with other animals of all types so when we can get out and about I will have to make a special effort to introduce him to livestock.

He’s a cracking little thing. Livestock is a bit of an issue for us too. We live in an area of beef cattle, over winter they tend to be indoors but in the last week they’ve reappeared in the pastures at the bottom of our garden. They’re youngsters who’ve probably been indoors all winter. They’re curious. When I call Freddie, they will often come too! Freddie isn’t too sure. He’s put on his big boy bark and made himself look at big as possible...on our side of the fence. Hopefully he’ll get used to them like my girls did.

Generally speaking, beef cattle are safer then milkers. Milkers can be a lot more hormonal.

Cut the grass for the first time since Henry has been here. It just had to be done.

I started the mower up to see how he would react and Henry shot off to hide in the bedroom.
I called Hollie in from the garden and closed the garden door fastening them both in, then started the mower again to cut the grass. After the first 'bag' was full I checked to see how Henry was and he was laid next to Hollie. I did this all the way through the mowing, a couple of hours of a job, and he stayed next to Hollie. He was fine though, didn't get into a tizz and came out when the mower was stopped.
I used to have to tell the lads to move out of the way when I was mowing.

Henry will get used to the mower and hedge cutters a bit at a time, same with the vacuum cleaner.
The grass needs another cut so I will try again in a couple of days.

Amy, the only one of mine EVER to not accept the mower. She goes to the opposite end of the garden to the area where I'm cutting. Chloe on the other hand is not bothered. Amy will stand beside me when the flail on the tractor is making a **** of a noise without batting an eyelid, but Chloe hates it! Explain that one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They're all different John.

Perro was riding in a JCB at 4 months old. I had to watch him closely because he would run alongside heavy machinery.
Harry would run a mile from an opened black bag but was OK with everything else.
Bailey I didn't get until he was 10 years old but he had no fear of anything at all.
Hollie was a problem with horses but only if they were being ridden. We managed to sort that.
