I am not sure how many know, but I just got into goats a few months ago - Ok, 2 months almost exactly. And boy, did I jump in head first! I went from 2 dogs to 14 animals and babies due in late winter early spring~ HAHA! Anyway, to the point~ I had the most awesome experience tonight and I just wanted to share before starting homework. I was feeling a little down when I got home, so I decided to go play with my goats. I decided that I was going to take my goats to the other pen and let them investigate while I gave the llamas lots of attention and extra food without fighting the 2 big goats that I have being bred up here (my friends - 1 is a nubian the other a alpine X - and needless to say I will NEVER own large goats) Anyway, the only way that I could take them to the other pen was to lock the dogs inside and have them come out of the pen that they were in, around the barn, up the driveway, and into the other pen. So I said what the heck - lets try it! I had 10 goats following me with a bucket in my hand - I am a true goat herder now!!! LOL! Ok, and so I realized that my 11th goat did not follow me. I got all 10 of the others in the pen and as I started to leave to lock the gate, here comes Chloe my prego pygmy that has shrunken head syndrome and peg legs cause she is SOOOO fat! She comes trotting up behind me. So I let her come back with me to the barn. Mind you, this goat 1 month ago when I got her would not even let me look at her. I got back to the barn to find my 11th goat standing in the doorway, with a look like I am going out there! Last time I got taken to a strange place, horns banded, and bred by some crazy little try colored thing.... NO WAY! I fed the llamas, played with them a bit, all the while the barn doors were open and the 2 goats and 2 llamas could have taken off out of that pen, but didn't. I set up feed for everyone for the night, then decided it was time to bring the others back for their hay and bed time. As I went to go get the other 10 goats, both my [ygmies followed me AND THE KITTEN! I was hilarious! So I let all the goats out, and I had 11 goats and a kitten following me back into the barn. It was so cute and made me so happy.
