Cuddles with Hovis

3 photos in this post One day this week Hovis had had a VERY long and busy day being out with us all. When we came home she needed cuddle time with Richard. Yes, he spoils her rotten but she loves it! When we purchased Hovis, the owners of the sanctuary told us to start training her to go on her back from a young age as long as she did not have a full crop. I listened and did this.

Rotating it back again, putting a cloth on both edges to prevent rubbing (damage) we then brought the kitchen slide in very... read more

Two pictures in this post  Two weeks ago, at 9 weeks old, Hovis took her first bicycle ride. We needed to go up to the clubhouse here at Treasure Lake for something so thought we would take Hovis with us. How would she do? Would she fall off? Hovis LOVED it! She stayed on Richard’s shoulder and rode all the way there and back. (Sorry about the quality of the pic as I was on my bike as well!) That... read more
