Look at that face. Yes I am winking and I will tell you why, I have trained the SPS to perform a new task. What task is that you ask? Well it is the task of hand-feeding me my treats. I have convinced her that the only way I will eat my treats with the supplements in them is if she hand-feeds me the entire thing. If she puts the bucket down before they are all gone I walk off and let my pasture mate eat them. The SPS wants me to eat all of my treats so she will pick the bucket up and keep feeding me by hand. She is so easy to train, it is a joy to work with her. Yep it is good to be King! Tue ne cede malissed contra audentiorito (Yield not to misfortunes, but advance all the more boldly against them)
