They Are Naughty

6 Oct

I don’t know what it is about this time of year, but it seems like this is when the goats all decide they are going to die if they don’t find fresh browse.  It makes me very unhappy when I look out the window and see the no-man’s land at the bottom of my property filled with goats.

Because it isn’t fenced and they can get out on the road.

Usually, I just go out to pasture and call them to come back and they do.  Not yesterday.  They traipsed out on the road.  A truck had to slow down to go through them.  Then I ran back up the hill to the barnyard (and I really thought I was going to have a heart attack running up the hill).  Then I got the Ranger and ran their butts up the road and into the barnyard.

They act so innocent.

I went down and patched my hobbling from a couple of years ago (the last time I posted about them doing this).

Hopefully it lasts another two or more years!
