My son has the following question:

How many of you have experienced a safety issue/accident that had you making changes in animal areas/farm?

(Sorry I didn’t see a poll option. So if you can just put yes or no as an answer, we’d greatly appreciate your participation)

Thanks so much in advance!

Yes! I had an incident last year where a kid broke her neck...... i stopped using the hay feeder i had been using and lowered my grain feeders a little. i think it was just the other doe being aggressive when she was trying to take her grain and head butted her out of the feeder... or she could have just been playing, idk how it happened, but i moved their pen and gave them more room.

Yes. I'm always on alert for ways my goats can kill themselves, be it a nail sticking out or garbage the wind carried in. Things shift, rust, get pulled loose, tree rot..there is always something that needs to be removed, revamped, or replaced it seems.
