Whenever I'm doing chores or working outside I always let the goats out to "help" me. (Ya, I've learned it takes longer to do things with their 'help'. ) Anyway, I needed to get back into the house quickly this morning so I did all the chores around the chicken coop area and then put the goats back inside the run and headed to the barn to feed the barn kitties. I was almost to the door of the barn when I heard this angry bleating behind me. (Not your normal, pitiful, "we're dying in here - please come see us." bleating .. but really loud "how rude of you" bleating!) I turned around to figure out what they were so upset about and then realized (as I see them pressed against the fence as close to my direction as they could get.) that I hadn't brought them with me to go into the barn! What was I thinking? How inconsiderate of me... three lashes with a wet noodle for leaving them behind! I'm so unthoughtful... and they sure let me know it. Just thought I'd share with others who understand and have goats running their lives too!
