Oh Delilah!

Delilah, has decided she doesn't want to respect the electric fence!  I wish this wouldn't happen!

We have had goats on occasion not respect the fence, in almost every case, we have had to sell them.
This happened a few years ago with some Toggenburg yearlings. We tried everything to get them to stay where they belong, with no luck. They damaged trees, killed bushes and were downright a nuisance.

Delilah has never given us any trouble, but for some reason the last two weeks she has decided the grass is greener on the other side of the fence or maybe it's the apple trees....
Anyhow, she is tied up for now. I do NOT want to sell her. She has been a great mother and milker. 
Oh Delilah, please behave!!!

  1. Poor Delilah..maybe she'll get in line and be a good goat.

  2. Oh my gosh, our Problem is named Delilah, too! Maybe if we changed their names???

    1. Mary Ann,
      Ha Ha, if only it were that easy :)

  3. Oh no! I've heard goats are masters at escaping. I hope she learns to stay put!

    1. With an electric fence it is more of a "mental" barrier than physical. Unfortunately she doesn't mind getting a hit, those apples are worth it!

  4. Can you move the apples to her side of the fence??? Best of luck!

  5. Once a goat learns something it is very hard to get them to change their mind. Hope she doesn't cause too much trouble.


Thank you for stopping by the farm!
