Today the girls have disgraced themselves and I found out that the Naughty Nordic Princess can open doors......
When we had the barn rebuilt, we had a door put in between the garage
bit and the horse shelter bit for ease of feeding etc. It's a proper aluminium
door with a handle, and usually there's a gate in front of it that cuts the
shelter in half and I used to put big bales of hay behind it. But with 4 of them
here sometimes, they needed more room in the shelter so I took the gate out. So
the other day I noticed Missy chewing the handle a bit but she didn't manage to
turn it so I didn't worry too much, she likes to nibble things (have already had
to wedge the tap with the hose on closed as she can reach it over the gate and
once turned it on in the night and I came down in the morning to a lake )
whilst I was out this afternoon, she managed to open the door and I came back to
find her and Sky in the garage attacking a sack of feed.......luckily it's only
low cal balancer stuff, but they'd managed to knock the dustbin over and get the
lid off, rip the bag open and scatter it everywhere, before crapping on it for
good measure. The goats and chickens had of course joined in the fun.
I've just spent ages clearing up the mess, after I'd extracted Sky from behind
Ali's pushbike, she couldn't work out how to get back past it and was just
standing there looking at me waiting for me to move it. Seraphina took one look
at me and backed hastily out of the garage door as soon as I opened
Thank God they didn't trash the old man's motorbike.......
I have since found the key and double locked that door!!!
