I haven't said much about my goats lately. The main reason is they aren't at my house right now. Since this summer was so hot, we kept the goats down at Hubby's dad's house. He has a bigger barn and lots of weeds that the goats love to eat. But........we have a small problem. The horses. Hubby's dad has two horses that live at his farm. They have taken up with the goats. Now in a perfect world, everything is suppose to get along. It sounds like the horses and the goats being friends is a good thing. It is! It's just....they are more like partners in crime.
You see, the goats have the run of the place. They go through fence like there is none there. Of course, barb wire really wasn't made for goats. lol. We don't care that they go through the fences. They can't hurt anything. It's actually kind of funny to look out in the backyard and see cat size balls of fur eating until their bellys look like they could pop.
Anyways, the goats have something against the neighbor's dogs. They tease,taunt,and torment them. And then when the dogs decide to chase the goats, the goats make a bee line to the horses. The horses, being 6 ft tall and not scared of dogs, take off after the dogs. They chase them out of the pasture. I swear the goats are standing behind the horses covering their little goat mouths with their little goat hooves snickering. hehhehehe
So now ask what my problem is. Have you ever tried to out run horses!? They are protective of those little boogers. lol. This could be interesting when we try to take them to our house this fall.
Now another update. I lost 5.4 lbs this week. And that is going to 3 cookouts this weekend. Maybe it was all of the running in the horse pasture. lol
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, smaller and faster.
