Thanks for the info guys...Holly is just so very much joy to us, that we just have to do everything to ensure what is best for her. She is very happy, and forming a very strange bond with my bobtail... Porthos...he was best friends with a grey, and has never been the same. They play through the paddock, and touch paws. When Holly is out with me, he shows no interest...and yet all night long they play.
I have not heard of many interactions with other animals...and I am very cautious... so we will see what the future holds. I'm sure I will be here talking to you in the years to come.
