Goats and Fences

7 Apr

There’s a saying that if you throw a glass of water at a fence and water gets through, a goat can get through.  Well, I think there’s some truth to that.  I’ve had my mom separated from the rest of the herd, but things keep happening.

Moms in front; everyone else in back

Hera has figured out how to go back and forth so that she can eat grain with both groups.

She must have shown Aphrodite where she gets through because Aphrodite ended up back on the side where my moms are.  Apparently, she can’t get back through.

At one point, Dolly put herself on the side with the rest of the retired girls.  That was good because she’s been picking on everyone, and I was going to have to figure out how to move her over there away from the moms.

Then one day I got home from work and found Margarita on the wrong side.  At least her Peanut is little enough to follow her anywhere.

The next morning, Daisy had joined the moms.  I don’t know how.

Then Harley and Cupid ended up on the wrong side.

I’m starting to think I should just give up and put everyone back together.  But then Friday when I got home, I found Maggie with the moms, and she wanted to fight with Harley.

Instead, I sorted everyone out again.  My moms still need extra care.

Always Fence to Fix

26 Mar

The nice weather and snow melting away means the goats have started going back out to pasture.

Even my old ladies left the Love Shack and lounged out in the front pasture for a while.

Saturday morning, I looked out the window and once again saw my goats in the no-man’s land at the bottom of my farm.  Seriously?

After doing major reworking of the barn, so my moms could have another section for them and the kids, I got the rest of the herd back where they belong.

They might look all innocent just basking in the sun, but they were just waiting for the opportune moment to sneak back down the hill and get out again.

Luckily, my nephew came out and set several posts across the ditch.  I believe the goats went around my snow fence (this was after I tied it back up).

Then I went into town and got the Ranger.  It was nice to have it out again, even if it was to haul panels down to fix the fence.

I really didn’t think I’d make it if I tried carrying the panels from the barnyard.

I got a bit creative, and managed to get it blocked.

Hopefully, this will work for a while.
