Goats are Not the Most Patient Creatures

I was pouring grain in the feed tubs. The animals were maaaing and baaaing ,impatiently waiting for me to open the gate.
When I turned around to open it I found Delilah half way through the gate, stuck. I guess she decided she had waited long enough. Thankfully she wasnt' too stuck and was able to get out on her own.

While I was out I decided to walk the fence line at least where we have a tree row to make sure nothing toppled on the fence with all of that wind we have  had.
Glad I did. I found one tree that had come down and was laying on the fence.
We really need to clean up the fence row. If we knew then what we know now we would have put the fence on the other side of the tree row and let the goats take care of  keeping it trimmed up. But with being newbies that wasn't thought of.  Now we have to clean up the fence rows to keep the brush and trees from growing in the electric fence. Someday maybe we will have it moved. It would be a lot easier to have the goats maintain it. They do a great job with that sort of thing.
One of their attributes that make up for the less desirable things that they sometimes do.

Look at all that brush the goats could be feasting on!


  1. Sandra, that's so funny! She looks a bit embarrassed, don't you think?

    I've been letting my goats over on the other side of my electric fence to eat down the jungle next door. It's so snakey over there. I wish I hadn't done it. Now the whole fence is messed up. And they keep getting out. They've done a great job though. And I found a huge oak branch on the other side right across the fence. So I have to go get some new fence stuff and get if fixed. I would like to have at least a 25 mile charger but those things are $140 at TS. That might have to wait. I have a 5 mile now I think.

  2. Kris, haha! I think she was more annoyed that her plan to get to the feed before anyone else didn't work out like she planned.


Thank you for stopping by the farm!
