Subtle changes are good too!

Lately I've noticed more and more subtle changes in Libby, all for the better.

The other day (last week?) I made climbing and hanging off of her corral panels, making silly noises, and really acting like a 5 year old. Not only did she come over to see what I was doing, she stood nicely for some facial scratchings.

A day or so later, I casually walked into her pen, and she came right up to sniff me and get he rnose rubbed. She has never come up to like that when I'm in her area, unless I have food for her.

Then yesterday, we had some people out and their 16 year old son (who has some sort of gift with animals) went out to see her- she walked right up to him and tried to take a bite out of his hat! I have an idea she wanted to play with him, but wasn't sure how to go about it- he's as gentle as anything, but this boy is also about 6'4", and probably about 210 pounds.

This afternoon she brayed for me to come out and see her, and when I did, she flatly refused to have anything to do with me. I'm not all that suprised though. Things are getting better.
