A Fight

25 Oct

I couldn’t get Freddie sold this past weekend, so I very carefully and sneakily worked to get him put back on the front pasture with Xerxes and Frodo.

Frodo is my good boy.

I am pretty sure Perdita and Purl were quite happy to be back with the main herd.

Freddie and Xerxes had to fight.

Freddie and Xerxes

I did keep an eye on them to make sure it wasn’t too serious.  After all, they do like each other, but they just have to fight when you put them back together, and with bucks in rut it isn’t always good natured.

Freddie is a mess between rut and cockle burrs

I can take care of the boys in there without me having to get too close to Freddie.  He’ll be okay in there.

Then I’m going to try to make an arrangement to use a trailer to haul the rest of the goats to be sold to the sale barn at one time.

Mini

I just have to wait for Mini to be past the withdrawal time for her wormer.

Benji and Myson

And poor Benji is just going to have to stay in the greenhouse jail until then.

    Nothing like bucks in rut.

    Wow, they were really going at it. I hope they both stay safe. I like Frodo and Mini. Take care, enjoy your day!

    Wow! Benji and Freddy were really going at it! Do any of them ever get hurt during their fights?n

      Freddie cracked a horn last year, but no serious injuries.

        Does that hurt them? Can a cracked horn heal?

        He is fine. It has scarred over.
