Today I offered Frankincense, Rose Otto, Sandalwood and Violet Leaf to Severino. He sniffed the frankincense but soon lost interest, so perhaps his need for that oil has now been satisfied. Sandalwood received only a perfunctory response which makes sense as he is not particularly noise sensitive. On the other hand Rose and Violet Leaf are still the firm favourites both provoking strong Flehmen responses.

Arena is growing in confidence each day. While I was working with Severino she was grazing about half a field away. The minute I opened the bottle of Rose Otto she raised her head and immediately started to make her way towards the bottle. She lowered her head and her lips and nostrils were twitching wildly. After a few minutes she went back to her grazing.
