Hired Hand

24 Aug

I think I need a hired hand (or two).  I am still trying to move my wethers off the Back Forty.  I did manage to put Myson and Moose in with the bucks, but the two little bucks immediately decided to challenge the big wethers.  Really?  Luckily the wethers are nice.  When my big bucks came up, I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to referee everyone, so I kicked Myson and Moose back out.

Casey I couldn’t even catch or lead.  Stinker.  He still is wary of me after I tried moving him, even though he’s usually right there rubbing his face up and down my leg as his personal scratching post.

Now, I think I’m going to try to move them in the north paddock (which means feeding them hay), but I haven’t had time or figured out how to do it when they are out in pasture almost until dark (and Casey is too smart to let me catch him).  Moving them is a high priority for this weekend.

I’m still trying to catch my young bucks to worm them.  I am tired of bucks I can’t catch and uncooperative boys.

I do hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are at the top of my side bar.

    These goats can certainly give you the runaround!

      I really don’t see that happening with rut season. Sigh…

        I agree, but I had to try.

    That picture of Casey standing on his hind legs to eat tree leaves brings back fond memories of Jenna’s goats! They sure do have minds of their own!

      They really do. Sometimes, they have a bit too much of a mind of their own. LOL

    Oh my goodness! Those guys act like spoiled children! 😀 I wish you good luck getting them moved!

      Yes, they do! I certainly need all the luck I can get with them.
