That's an absolutely brilliant idea, Ruth !!! Zola and I will be all agog to learn what she does next. Zola has never been a digger -yet - so I hope she doesn't inspire him.I've had a light bulb moment (overdue)
Teztez has been doing her absorbed scrabbling digging motions again with her back legs, trying her hardest to dig.
We have some building work going on involving builder's sand, so I begged a few shovelfulls, which I warmed up and put in a View attachment 361991 box under her heat lamp, and she seems really pleased, I'm warming up some more to make it deeper for her.
Now I see the possible reason why she used to escape from the farm park and make her way to the riding school. Apparently she liked to dig into the sand around their riding ring. Now it makes sense. She must have been trying to dig a nesting hole.
Why ever she's still trying to dig Now, in October is a mystery, still, she's evidently got it on her mind, so we will see what she does with all this sand!
She can easily climb out of the box if she gets fed up with the sand.
I know it should be deeper, but it's the best I can do for now, it's too cold for her to be outside today.
