With Mother Matilda
Every night I've been giving Stella supplemental feeding, a protein blended feed that I water down into mash. She is going on ten and lost some weight this late spring, her teeth are pretty worn down too. So I put her behind the half eaten donkey door [it was a charming door I made that the donks have chewed on over the years] so she can be assured all her food.
Matilda too has been getting supplemental feed to add some weight, so she eats on the other side of he door. And she usually finishes first.
I watched her today as she schemed of ways to get into Stella and her food.
Staring at the door did not seem to open it, nor did licking it.
