    Well my mom and I were gone (getting Cowgirl) and my dad was the only one home. Well our goats love to slip under the fence into the big pasture. My dad was inside building my new milk stand (photos tomorrow) and he heard my dog Quincy going crazy barking outside. So my dad went outside and heard a goat crying so he went over and saw some goats in the pasture and he still heard someone screaming so he walked the fence line and Nestea's head was under the fence and her collar was stuck and she was choking. So who knows what would have happened without Quincy allerting us.

    Sounds like a close call, ya'll were fortunate this time. :)

    I was told when I first got goats that collars might be a bad idea.

    Wow that is scarey! Thank the Lord that you have Quincy!

    Isn't Nestea the doe that you had for sale? Are you keeping her?

    That is so scary!! That is exactly why I refuse to keep collars on my goats unless I am with them. I just can't imagine what I would feel like if I walked out to a strangled goat... :(. I am so glad she is OK!!
