A major milestone achieved!

Every day I go into the Run and feed the Girls treats, from a treat pot. Gradually, and demonstrating much more patience than I actually felt, I got the Girls used to being stroked while feeding. Except Scarlett, who was far too nervous.

With Delilah, I was able to pick her up, and she would happily feed (snatch) from my hands at the same time. With Lydia, she would eventually let me pick her up, but not feed from my hands. And Scarlett, well, it took many days before I could even stroke her.

Today I managed to pick up each Girl in turn AND have them eat from my hand whilst being held. Even Scarlett!!

It probably doesn't sound like much, but it really is a major achievement!
