You may have read my post in the "Rainbow Bridge" section. I had a doe killed by a bear in an awful way. My two other surviving does are traumatized. It happened this past Saturday and I went to a fair on Sunday which surprisingly calmed them down considerably. I think it was the change of scene and the large amount of goats and people. While I was away my dad installed a 5000 volt electric fence meant to power 10 miles of fencing...I only fenced in a small area. Technically the goats cannot touch the fence unless they stick their hooves or noses too far through the fence already installed. It's installed so that it sticks about 2-3 inches out from the fence already there. Also when I was away, my thoughtful brothers sprayed down the field (to get out the blood) and around the front entrance where there was the smell of bear. They also cleaned out the shed and moved the floor mats out to the yard and washed them down with soap and the power sprayer. After the mats were dry, they moved everything back in the barn, put clean woodchips inside and sprayed air fresheners. They also wiped down parts of the walls and the small door that the bear dragged my doe out of when he killed her. Now that my goats are back in the barn they are still scared to death. I know it takes a couple of days to re-adjust to the present situation but my goats are almost chronically nervous. One of them was born scared and she is always wincing and whirling around and making snorting noises now. The other is grinding her teeth much more than usual. Their eating habits have changed as well (they barely eat any hay now) and their grain intake has decreased because they get distracted and strain their necks in the stanchion to make sure that there is no bear behind them when I am milking. Does anyone have any tips on how to calm down my goats? I am very calm myself now (I have recovered) but my goats still are extremely nervous. All day they scream and run around the pen thinking that something is chasing them. Any ideas? I would really appreciate it.
