What Didn’t Go Well

17 Oct

Like I said, mixing the goats actually went fairly well.  However, they didn’t stay that way.  By the time I got done mixing everyone, I realized Penelope was back with the old ladies.

Penelope in pasture last week

And Ostara had snuck back in with her maa.


I put Penelope back, but there’s no way I could catch my bratty Ostara after all the craziness of catching and sorting everyone.  In fact, I never did catch her, so I’ll just have to deal with it if she gets bred.

Ostara, Benji, and Cupid

I got home, the afternoon after I mixed everyone and hoped everyone was where they were supposed to be.  But no, Penelope was back on the wrong side of the barnyard.  This time, I just threw her in with Frodo and…

Pretzel?  Where was Pretzel?  She was also out with the old ones.


Brat.  How did she get out?

I did add another panel and made sure it didn’t tilt out, so she couldn’t climb it.  Now she’s captured too.

Resting in the food pan

Sunday morning, I got up and saw that Tansy was on the wrong side.  She left Benji and came back to the other side of the barnyard.


Luckily, she likes food, and I managed to get her to come into the milk room.  Then I put her back in with Benji.

If only we didn’t always have to do things the goat way.

    Oh for goodness sake! Ornery goats! And just as I was wondering how they get out, I came to the first picture of Pretzel going over the fence!! I had to laugh.

    All your hard work, the goats still have their way. I see that Pretzel can escape easily. Take care, enjoy your day!
