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!
