The boys are still driving me crazy. Although I did manage to catch my wethers Sunday evening and get them sorted off.
I feel bad having them shut in the small north paddock, but I also don’t want them getting bladder stones. They don’t seem to believe me that it’s for their own good.
I’ve added to my list of bothersome boys. I thought I heard a kid yelling when I got home Sunday afternoon from a photo shoot, so I went out to pasture. I was expecting to see Gomez. I’d already removed his head from the fence earlier in the day. Sadly it has been a habit of his lately. I was a bit surprised to see Red with him.
Gomez wasn’t actually very stuck. He got his head out before I reached him. Red, on the other hand, was quite stuck. I removed his head from the fence.
Then we all three rejoined the herd. They were certainly happy to see their moms.
I hoped Red was going to be smart (they usually are) and not take after Gomez who has been a habitual head sticker. I didn’t want to risk him getting stuck all day while I was at work, so I weaned him. When I got home Monday, he was stuck again. Hopefully, he sticks to putting his head through the panels because he can still get his head out of there. So far.
It’s not like he’s starving. Look at all the weeds and such. You can barely see the other yard goats.
Some kids just don’t learn.
I hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt. I have the items for this week listed at the top of my side bar.
