    Do goat kids go thru terrible twos?

    I have our 4 week old today boer buckling in the house. From the
    minute I got him out of bed to feed him this morning, he's been all
    over this house, jumping on things, grabbing papers and things that
    he's not supposed to get, trying to jump on the bar table, etc etc.
    He's never been this rambunctios.

    Anyway, back to the previous question...
    Do goat kids go thru terrible twos?

    I've got to get another goat fast so I can get him outside LOL!!

    Oh yes - the fun is beginning.

    I had a Nigerian who lived in the house till he was 5 weeks - NEVER, ever again - for that reason. He would take off running and flying through the air, on top of everything, always in trouble for knocking something off of somewhere.

    One time he went flying up on the coffee table and then right in the chest of my husband who was sleeping - that was the last straw for DH :ROFL:

    Oh, thank you!! I am glad it's not just my little guy!! Had me worried. Funny about the husband thing. Mine is getting to his last straw. He'll be sitting in the recliner, watching TV, and guess who jumps up in his lap, crushing something while in the process. I thought my husband might have goat chops for dinner right then and there LOL.

    My goat has been active and funny and all, but today, it has just kicked in, the orneryness.

    :ROFL: Oh but they're so cute, how can you get upset. :slapfloor: I had a little bottle baby that was in the house for a few weeks, oh gosh, she would run through the house to one end then come leaping and spring back to the other end. She'd jump on the recliners, tear apart newpaper, and slip and slide on the lenolium (sp) floor. Oh yes, and a couple times she'd jump in my bed while I was watching tv and take a nice long pee. :GAAH: But I could never stay mad for long. I'd always give her a big hug and pat her on the head after I was done cleaning up the mess. :roll: Then she'd run off to do more damage. :doh:

    He's a normal healthy kid! LOL

    When I brought Bootsie home( almost 9 yeas ago!) She stayed in the house with me thru the day and slept outside at became a permanent outside thing when she and the cat were playing tag one day and DH was napping on the couch.....needless to say, the high speed pass over his face and "jewels" woke him up very fast and from then on Boots stayed outside( when he was home :wink: )

    Ducky was in the house for about a month as well. Ha ha, goodness, fun times! Ducky just HAD to sleep in the bed with me. I would start her out in her crate but after a few hours of screaming, Dad said " I dont care what you have to do, just get it to shut up already!" I would lay a puppy pad down before she got snuggled down beside me just in case, but she never did pee or poop in my bed. I guess Im just so light of a sleeper, anytime she got up, I was ready. :slapfloor:

    I had a buckling in the house last year for a month so I was prepared this year. We kid proofed the kitchen and living room for this year. I use baby gates to keep them restricted. Right now I have 3 little ones jumping and running around my kitchen. It is really funny because they will stand there in a huddle real quiet right before they try to get into something they shouldn't. It's like they are discussing what they can get into. I am very lucky because Rich is the one who wanted goats to begin with so he loves it. He purposely lays on the floor so they can climb and jump all over him.
