    Coupla days ago, I offered tray of applesauce mixed with their mash.....I watched them for 20"....and THEY watched the TRAY! Scared to death of this new "thang." I was so disappointed. But when I got home, they'd slicked it up.

    Today...I offered it again. 2 silkies jumped on my arm before I got the tray sat down.....then ALL DOVE in! IT was gone in minutes!

    A 4' tall dog kennel inside our barn where the teenagers stay until moving to their permanent home. We're up to 12 silkies, 4 golden polish, 2 dominques, and about 20 ameracauna mix-breeds. I'm having so much fun, but I really think hubby is enjoying this as much as me!

    Mine go nuts for it! Then again mine go nuts for rice, applesauce, oatmeal, grapes, my lettuce which they snatched right out of my sandwich when I was not paying attention. That'll teach me to go back to the kitchen for a drink and leave the sandwich plate on the desk. [​IMG]
