Hide and Goat Seek

7 Jul

Today was a busy day.  Just when I was thinking of doing a blog post, I got involved in a couple of rounds of hide-and-goat-seek.  I won the first one!

Reva's kids: Elmer and Jacob

Reva’s kids: Elmer and Jacob

I walked out to pasture and searched for Reva’s bucks.  I found them on my way back up to the barnyard.  Granted, I spent half an hour walking up and down hills and they were twenty feet outside the barnyard, but I found them!  The next round was a bit more difficult.  Litha’s kids were in the barnyard with her, and sometime she went out to pasture.  I couldn’t find her babies.  I did wait until after the goats came back from pasture and I milked and I still had not seen the babies with her before I decided she left them in pasture.  After and hour and a half of trying to find them and trying to get Litha to call to them, I could see her thinking about it.  Then she turned and went to the barnyard.  I might have threatened her if she was just following the herd.


Litha’s buck, Roi


Litha’s doe, Princess

I found them safely in the barn hidden behind a tarp that I did not know they could get behind.  At least I found them and they were safe.  Final score, Farmer Teresa: 2; Goats:2

I do hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt tomorrow.  The items for tomorrow are listed at the top of my sidebar.

    Oh such ornery goaties! 😃 But I’m glad everyone is accounted for! I love your scorekeeping!

      I’ve lost count of the score over the whole season. Nobody has been permanently lost though!

    One sure thing then those goats are keeping you on your toes and you certainly will be fit.

      They do! I need to hike, but I’d prefer to do it when I choose, like when it isn’t so hot and humid. LOL

    Hello, I am sure you get plenty of exercise walking around the farm looking for the goats and working. I am glad the kids were found and they were safe. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

    I didn’t know that goats would hide. I suppose, like cats, when they found a favorite place they would stay there for a while.

      More like putting their baby somewhere to sleep while they are off eating. Cows do it. Deer will do it. It just drives me crazy.
