Only have been into goats for a couple of months. I had two billies together, in a pen about 8' by 16' attached to a medium sized shed they could get into. They are both pygmy's. One is quite small, and the other is 2 years old. I came home today from work to find the small one by himself. I cannot figure out how the larger one got out. My fence is cattle panel that is 50" tall with 6" X 6" squares. From everything I have read, this should have been more than enough to keep them in. The billy has been here about a week now. I have no neighbors close by that would have let him out, and besides the small one is still in the pen. I have quite a few trees around and several outbuildings he could get in for the night to get out of the cold and wind. We are supposed to get a huge blizzard starting tomorrow late afternoon. I have found footprints in the snow so I know he was walking around this afternoon in the snow and mud. What does everyone think? Is the fence tall enough? Will he be ok tonight by himself out in the trees if that is in fact where he is? Any suggestions on how to get him back near the shed and house area tomorrow?
