I finally got him.
Was just a matter of using the right bait!
Turns out that the little bugger just can’t resist apple leaves and pea vines.
I’d been working on him all week. Getting a little closer each time.
Sometime Wednesday or Thursday I actually had him distracted enough with the goodies that I got to scritch him behind the ears, and I don’t think he even noticed!
So today were were going for the full on catch and hold.
I showed everybody the goodies, then walked them into the shed and plopped them in the feeder.
All the guys, including Griff, came in for the buffet.
Ahh. Sweet victory.
I did hold and pet Griff twice, and there is photographic evidence, but apparently I look pretty goofy in the pictures, so you’ll have to take my word for it!
Chone says “Hey, what’s the big deal about petting him? I thought I was your little buddy!”
Little Edgar is such a sweet boy, even when he’s soggy.
This pile hopefully going to work up into a nice simple top down raglan.
Another designing-on-the-fly kind of thing, I think.
Just my style.
Have a great week!
