I'm heartbroken, I was away from home in another state for a few days and my sister was taking care of the farm, my brother decided to visit and the goats got out of their pen, it's never a big deal because they just stay in the yard, but when my brother went to leave they followed him to the road and he didn't come back up to let my sister know they were following him he just sped up! If he was in front of me right now I would rip his teeth out!!!!
They went missing Sunday night around 7 pm, we are surrounded by big plots of land and thick woods. My sister and a friend went door to door yesterday asking if anyone had seen them but had no luck. We are friends with the people that own the biggest plot around so I'm going to be asking them if they mind me driving their hay fields to search for them.

If your the praying type then please pray that we find our babies!

Oh dear, I'm so sorry! Rest assured they are totally fine having a GREAT time with all the new browse they have discovered! This happened once to us with our first pair of goats 10+ years ago. They were safe and happy when we found them! Don't forget to bring a scoop or bucket or whatever you normally rattle some grain in!

Are your goats tame to strangers? Would someone be able to load them in a vehicle with a food bribe if they spotted them along the road?

You might be able to find a local Facebook group for lost pets and see if you can get a tracking dog.

We still haven't found them yet. I'm going into town today so I will be stopping at the police department to see if they've heard anything, if not I will see about the pound. I started spreading the word on Facebook and a lot of people are keeping an eye out. I'm afraid someone just took them to resell so I talked to some of the local auctions to keep their eye out for them.
They are tame enough you don't even need feed to catch them, except Sunny but if the others got into someone's car so would she.
