If It’s Tuesday, It Must Be Ducks

September 7, 2010

Tonight’s report from Susan.

“Well, I did finally get to work Chase tonight on ducks. I didn’t think I would be able to, but I got done putting up the first two panels of fence before dark. Chase did fine working the ducks. I got down on one knee several times to praise him and he really got off on that. He was able to put the ducks away – and actually helped.  That got him more praise.”

Yep!  I’m going to have to get him some ducks of his own.  Inca also likes to herd, so it’s probably a great investment.  When we were kids, my grandmother used to buy us (we were seven strong) a pass to the nearby swimming pool.  That was everyone’s birthday present for the year.  Ducks may be the group gift at the new house.

    Just so you know–ducks STINK! They smell really, really bad! Also, they attract preditors so they have to be in a very secure enclosure–including the top. When Susan had the ducks at her Oasis property–very secure LARGE pen but the top not enclosed–with access to the barn–some preditor(s) came in one night and offed the entire bunch. However, it is great having them available for herding training and they do not require very much space, as opposed to sheep.
