Magnus is a very grumpy boy at the moment and very snappy when
Ray and Marlin come near him. He also has a problem with the flies and so the Animal Care Team (ACT) have been treating him with an avocado and tea tree fly spray. Magnus now smells lovely.
Lizzie has been receiving eye treatment for the squint in her eye. She has also been splitting her fish and scraping out her pills. So the ACT have been hiding the pills in the fish’s mouth, as yet Lizzie has not found them and been swallowing the pills. Final score ACT 1 ~ SEALS 0
Fatima was treated to conger eel this week which she enjoyed. We have discovered that when she gets the eel, takes it into nursery pool 2 cave, and eats it. Fatima also can be found starring across the pool longing at Magnus.
Sheba is still snuggling up to Ray on a daily basis, but is also receiving treatment for an eye infection.
Anneka is back in training for the Olympics and can be found doing laps up and down the pool.
Snoopy is enjoying her own company in nursery pool 1 at the moment and enjoying starring at the visitors as they go pass the window. Snoopy freaked out Tamara the other morning by just starring at her and not moving. Think this has now levelled the playing field ACT 1 ~ SEALS 1
Ray is still snuggling up to Sheba on a daily basis.
Marlin, having no luck with Sheba, has now taken a liking to
Lizzie and both can be found ‘kicking back’ on the top step of the convalescence pool, and touching flippers.
Attie is at the moment playing the fool at feeding time. At feeding time, she come’s flying out the nursery pool, sliding across the haul out area in to the convalescence pool picks up a fish, jumps out the convalescence pool, slides back across the haul out area into the nursery pool and eats the fish. Once this fish is finished, she repeats the same process over again, seems a lot of work for a fish but at least she is getting some exercise.
All the residents in this pool were also treated to squid. Marlin liked it,
Fatima spat hers out, Magnus ignored his and Sheba and
Ray…where otherwise engaged in other pursuits
Flotsam is still doing lots of grunting. Flotsam, Jetsam and E Minor have been doing lots of sea gull chasing and Ed got a little confused at one feeding time when he thought Abi hand was a fish, but Ed is very smart. He went to grab the hand stopped looked oddly at it realised what it was and waited patiently for his fish.
Flipper has been a naughty boy this week and been eating the cockers off the tree, Yulelog is more sensible.
Rocky and Pepper have been weighed this week. Rocky was first to be weighed and was following the ACT so they could get him on the pallet, and Rocky just kept on walking and broke the pallet so the team had to find a replacement. Rocky was weighed successfully and is just less than 300 kilos. In the afternoon, Pepper knew it would be her turn so before the team arrived to do the feeding, Pepper got on the pallet and waited for the guys to turn up, Pepper weighs 91 kilos. This is normal as the males are normally a lot heaver then the females.
Carus still has a nice clean pool even though we gave him conger eel, which we thought would mess up his pool. Carus ate the conger eel still frozen, we are surprised he didn’t have gut ache.
Mika has been teasing Chaff again this week and when he would not respond to her Mika start on the ACT in particular Abi who was cleaning the pool. Abi would have to tell Mika off and Mika would lie down and look guilty, then jump back up a few minutes later and start on Abi again.
Bamboo and Thai have been enjoying the muddy puddles created by the torrential rain and been enjoying the mud slides. Thai is being picky about the food and now both are hanging off the trousers and wellies during feeding time.
Elvis joined the ponies on a walk around site this week. The other goats were quite fretful about where he had gone, and could be found charging around the field looking for him. Elvis had a wonderful welcome on his return.
Reef has been spotted by everyone this week and has also been given a treat of some fish tails in his shed.
