Horn Apparatus: Take Two

13 Sep

Zeus and Hera are at it again.  They’ve both had their heads stuck in the fence, so they both got the apparatus put back on their horns.

These two are lucky they are so stinking cute.

Zeus and Hera

17 Jul

Zeus and Hera have not had their heads stuck in the fence since I put their little apparati (what is the plural of apparatus) on their horns.

Hera and Zeus

I was a bit worried when Zeus removed his last Thursday evening, but so far he hasn’t gotten stuck.

I keep thinking I should take Hera’s off and see how she does without it.

Especially since she was using it to try and bulldoze through the younger kids.

Maybe I’ll wait a couple more days…

The Horns of Shame

11 Jul

I really hoped that selling Loki would end kids getting heads stuck in the fence.  Unfortunately, that was not the case.

“Hmmm, I bet I can reach that one piece. And if I get stuck, the human is here to help me out again.” -Zeus

Zeus and Hera got to be just as bad as Loki.  I don’t know what it is with the kids this year.  It’s been like eight years since I’ve had such persistent kids.  I had to do something because of my plan to leave the farm for an entire day (gasp).

Hera (front), Zeus (behind), and maa Gidget who just lets her kids stick their heads through the fence (last)

I got creative with tent stakes, wine airlock bungs, candle mold sealer, and duct tape.

I think this will do the job. It’s pretty lightweight, the rubber bungs shouldn’t poke anyone.  I pushed as hard as I could on the ends and didn’t get poked by the stake.  I think it’s all good!

It doesn’t seem to bother them at all.  Although, I might recommend to Gidget that she wean them.  It’s time.  Trust me.

It might be wrong, but seriously, his silhouette made me laugh.

Hopefully, I will be able to take them off in a week or two and they will not try putting their heads back through.

Updated since I first prepared this post four days ago:  still no heads stuck and they are still not bothered by their little extra appendages!  Woo hoo!
