With a fence separating them, they seem to get along quite well. They nuzzled and nipped throughout the day and even spent time in the head to tail position swatting away flies.
Sebastian (that is his new name - it means majestic, revered and is also a character in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night) seemed to calm down in Oberon's presence. With the warm sun beating down, Sebastian even laid down flat on the ground and took a bit of a nap.

My son was picking flowers for me, but Oberon spied them and "tiptoed" up behind him and blew down his neck. Oh, Oberon, maybe I should have named you Puck after all! (a mischievous character in Shakespeare's "Mid Summer Night's Dream".
Sebastian is very alert and at times looks like a dark statue as he takes in his new surroundings.
