    Yeah, they went right through the fencing and I didn't even know until I went out yesterday afternoon to say what's up to them. I'm freaking out went across the street (Which is a HIGHWAY UGH) to this little thrift shop and asked if they had seen goats, and they said an "oriental lady" picked them up and said they were hers(!!!)
    I knew who it was because a Korean lady had come by our house when we first moved in and said she had a bunch of animals and lived down the road. I call her up, and there was a lot lost in translation, but what I got out of it was that she did have them. The cops called her and she told them that they weren't hers but she would take them in anyway. She completely forgot who I was until I told her where we lived LOL
    Anyway, she comes and picks my son and I up and takes us over to the house that she is renting out and goats and donkeys galore!! It was awesome!
    She told me that she doesn't really like the lady that renting her house because the deal was that she pay a small rent and help out feeding and watering, landlord would provide food, the animals and apparently hasn't been holding up on her end.
    So, she REALLY wants us to rent it, and PSH way cheaper than the place we're renting right now, Jack just started walking, so we wouldn't have to worry about that anymore since it's a really quiet road and it's all fenced in. The house is a bit smaller but we're renting a house that's way too big anyway and there's so much more that I could do there. I've been wanting to plant a garden, but it's way too sandy and we can't afford to get topsoil right now, over there the soil is better. I also felt bad that I took Nash and IO away from their new friends! LOL
    Our lease ends in February and she's kicking her tenant out in a couple months.
    I'm so excited, my husband loves it too just because it's so much cheaper! Poksan (the Korean lady) is my new best friend haha, she's even giving us a key so I can help out and feed her animals until we move in.

    OH yeah, and I'm also excited because my husband is going to be getting promoted and he won't be deploying (they told him the other day there was a chance he would and he's only been back 6 months!)!! YAY!

    I kinda had something like that happen....my buck hopped the fence and took off into town, where he got picked up by a guy who owns a grade-A dairy and...

    He wants him back the end of this month to finish breeding his does! (my buck also has a date with about 20 or so boer does, but I don't know when that will be, probably mid November).

    And no, he can't hop the fence anymore. A cow broke down a weak spot in the fence, and we finally broke down and put a long pallet up, since we're out of fencing....
