This past week Fergus has been handled multiple times a day, sometimes just for a few minutes at a time and these interactions are certainly helping him settle in to domestic life and become more confident. However, the weather has continued to be extremely challenging, making it difficult to do very much with Fergus.
At this stage, I’m not worried as he’s still building up his muscles and gaining strength and just as with humans, these things take time.
Small milestones: Fergus has learned to accept the bridle, he’s become used to the saddle and girth and has also experienced a stockwhip cracking next to him, which is shown on this weeks video.
