Trying to herd the sable onto the feeding station
Or failing him, anyone who can talk to the animals.  We need to get the message to our sable that if they continue to refuse the food we offer them, they will be in serious trouble.  Some of them, particularly the mothers and calves, are already looking horribly thin and ragged and yet,  no matter how we try to tempt them with game blocks, cubes, lucerne or loose feed - they ignore it all.  We are now at a complete loss - so if there is anyone out there who feels that they can somehow reach the ears of these mystifyingly stubborn animals  - please do!
