    Oh boy it just makes my day sitting up there watching them :lol:

    Demi, for example. A few weeks ago, she was all "I want to attack everyone because I'm the best." Then she was surgically dehorned and now - "please don't attack me, heeeelp"

    Whisper is really enjoying the new Demi. Now she is officially Queen, with no competition at all! Harmie has never wanted to fight anyone, so Whissy doesn't even bother with her.

    Demi's new fighting attitude is a bit like this:

    Whisper: get out of my way you little &^*%
    Demi: Shan't!

    Demi rears up on her hind legs and twists her head into a good Attacking Pose

    Whisper steps back and gets ready to retaliate.

    Demi, in mid air, decides that maybe this wasn't such a good idea after all - and instead of landing facing Whisper, turns in mid air and makes a run for it.

    Whisper: Come back and fight, you little whatsit!
    Demi: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    Demi runs and hides behind any object she can find.

    :roll:

    Oh and then we have Samuel. He seems to think that Whisper's udder still belongs to him - and dashes towards it. Whissy, on the other hand, HATES that, and will beat him up every time he does it. She still hasn't cottoned on to the fact that his head is actually harder than hers because of the horns. She puts up a jolly good fight though, and he usually runs away...

    I put Samuel up on the milking stand to do his feet, locking his head into the stanchion so that he couldn't escape. I stood above him, and picked up a hind foot and started trimming. Samuel started to moan and groan and cry and generally jump around and be a pain.

    I'm like "Samuel! Stop being a baby!"

    and ignore his yells as sure, doesn't everyone tell me their goats yell when they get their hooves trimmed? and Samuel is a cry baby anyway.

    After a little while of this I get sick of it and turn around to tell him in no uncertain terms to shut up.

    At which point I see Whisper standing beside him, calming chewing his ear with immense concentration.

    I got really mad at her and told Sammy I was sorry and didn't realise. He calmed down after that. :roll:

    Goats, huh? They're so hilarious!

    and don't their antics such as you describe just make the day??!!!
    it's those darned sweet eyes and little nuzzles, and that little 'maaaa' whenever they see us....they have us well attached. and so we become goat maniacs.......how sweet it is.

    LOL! Yep, they do some of the craziest things!!

    Right now Tink thinks that she is Queen of the pasture and I really think that she has no clue that she is about 1/8 the size of the others :roll:

    Yeah, Tink is doing this thing where she likes to bounce around the other Does and see just how long she can do it until it gets on their nerves... then she goes running back to Mommy :roll:

    It sounds like they are gradually getting you trained, Katie. :wink: At some point, you will give up trying to teach them any manners and their job will be done. I love how you describe them though!

    I've got all my goats trained, none of them care about having their hooves trimmed LOL
    They all love to pick fights though. Ever since I got Raven(black doe) all of the goats are confusing her and Molly(the herdqueen, also black) and they have all been fighting with Molly. Molly is not very happy we brought Raven home, LOL They do leave Raven alone though :D
