Today Chloe persuaded me to let her out to graze the lawn.
She stayed out there til dinner time. As I was fixing the feed, she came over, considered going in the gate, thought better of it, and wandered off again.
After setting out the other feed dishes, I planned to lure Chloe back into the field with her bucket. Not going to work - she preferred the lawn. So I put her bucket down inside the open gate and proceeded to try and push her through in a very slapstick fashion - me pushing her tail end, only to have her turn around and face me. I put my arms around her neck in an attempt to lead her, but she ended up leading me.
After a minute or two of Laurel-and-Hardy shenanigans, it occurred to me that Chloe was actually enjoying this. She was making no attempt to leave the scene, offered a trick spin or two, and seemed to like pushing back when I pushed her.
At the moment when the thought occurred to me that this might be a fun game, Chloe marched off toward her open gate, allowed me to deflect a last-minute attempt to return to the lawn, and settled down to her dinner bucket.
