    Ok, Doodle Doo has gotten out of hand, Nugget was walking by the fence and Doodle challenged him!

    Uh, yeah! Dumb Doodle! Geez, Kate, Nugget is a tall drink of water, isn't he?? Go, Nuggers! He looks none the worse for wear after his intruder ordeal.

    You can actually see the broken spur in the picture on his right leg, it's a stump

    I think he's one tough guy. I had to cut Suede's spurs that short on purpose. I didn't have any burglar to throw at him, LOL.

    Nugget is a pacifist, that is the first time I've ever seen his hackles up like that!

    Glad he only lost a spur.

    Good thing there was a fence there.

    Quote:No, I could never do that to him, which is one reason this weekend a whole lotta roos are going bye bye. I love my boys, but when they start challenging Nugget, they really need a new home. Poor Popcorn is being tormented by Doodle, but he won't fight back, Doodle got cocky, I'm glad there was fence there. I'd rather rehome than bury.

    Poor popcorn is a wussy. And Doodle Do... has got to be just plain nuts to challenge Nugget. I'm a lot bigger than (ok, a LITTLE bigger than) Nugget, and *I* wouldn't challenge him. I guess Doodle Do didn't see Nugget totally kick that intruders butt.
