Hah! That's what I get for opening my big mouth about peace 'n all.
I suspected it last night and confirmed this morning: Tika is Alpha. And, I'm not sure Willie is all that enthused. I was standing with him last night... Tika was sort of behind me and off to the side when Willie's ears moved back and he turned his head slightly away from me. I knew it wasn't because of me and suspected that he had gotten some sort of nod from Tika to beat it. He looked a little miffed.
I haven't seen any flat out ear pinning but, ears are definitely flicking, there is subtle nose pointing, and feet are moving. Willie's feet, that is. So, it is decided then, I guess.
This means, they will now get 2 piles of hay. Tika can be a bit of a bully; I've seen it before. I won't intervene for now... let them sort it out.
Anywho, I managed to take a few pictures this morning... enjoy!
