KODI THE KUDU

In early June last year I was given the opportunity of rearing a baby kudu.  Who could resist that?  The idea of this beautiful creature coming in to our lives was irresistible.

A tiny little creature all legs and eyes arrived and took over affections.  He guzzled his milk, his stomach worked and he hid in the lavender bushes during the day.  As he grew he became more adventurous wondering into the bush around the house, running with the dogs and having the odd heinous accident.  Scarred ears bear testament to his adventures with different dogs – he now thinks he is a dog – difficult when he wants to eat a sausage!

Now we go for walks – visit the horses – they are terrified of him – and he hangs out in the office wanting love and eating paper – the excuse is there ‘my homework was eaten by the kudu!’  His greed is unbelievable and makes me worry for when we introduce him back into the wild.  He needs kudu love and girls – he is so handsome and the horns are beginning to grow – adolescence is around the corner HELP!
