Unlike what Anthony reported yesterday, the sun was not out much today. But that didn’t stop Missy and crew from going out onto Young’s Hill!
When they were given access to their outdoor enclosure, they ventured to the same structures as yesterday.
Burrito on the other hand wanted more. He tried to convince me to run around the hill with him.
He thought better of it as the outer edges of the perimeter still have a good deal of snow (thankfully for me since the human side of the fence is covered in snow and mud). Instead, Burrito decided to explore Negra’s Cabin.
His desire to run around Young’s Hill seemed to have sparked the desire in everybody else though. Shortly after, Missy, Annie, Jody, and Jamie made their way to a set of logs that haven’t been seen since Fall.

Though they already ventured further than they have been, it still wasn’t enough for some.

You might guess what is next…
Missy began her ascent up her tree:
There was a good two minute window where I thought Annie was going to follow Missy up! She would stand and grab the tree, but then let go and sit down. She repeated this a few times. In between each take, she would hype herself up to overcome her fear by rocking and tapping the tree and ground. But alas, today was not the day Annie would make her go at climb the trees.
She did, however, settle on climbing on to the top of the near by structure to be somewhat close to Missy.
After a while, Annie decided it was time to head back inside for lunch. She convinced Missy this is now the plan, and Missy obliged.
Look at that dismount!
After landing a perfect 10 dismount, it was time to head inside to enjoy some lunch!
