    Pet peeve: can't remember if I said this one before but...when I'm told sarcastically by non goat owners, "how did goats ever survive without you.?" Just burns me up when they think goats are just toss and watch animals.

    Pet peeve today.... if you think your “billy” is going into heat you PROBABLY do not NEED to be breeding anything. Oye! And when someone... me.... calls you out on the stupidity do not think that i will shut my mouth quickly.

    Or another one this mornin that i saw on a fb goat group too.... several nigi/pigmy does and doelings runnin amok and this BIG ober mixed buck in with them... uhhhh get his arse out of there now right now! Him being agressive at the feed dish is a small bit of your worries.

    Ugh people today! I should go clean my house and then knit. I must not be let free reign of my mouth today it seems.

    Plus too also..... the deer are in my garden having a smorgasbord... paul’s “deer deterrant” is NOT working.

    I cant stand bucks and does being called billys and nannys. Where did those terms come from and can they go back where they came from.
    The facebook posts that say "dont comment hate" ....because you know youre doing something dumb that will get hated on for.

    I will kick this Rona in da butt.

    We call fire ants red ants here. Those bites look very painful. Blessing prayers to you.

    I hate people who come here and call my goats by puckering their lips and clicking at them. They are goats not dogs.

    These are black ants with a red butt. It was so stupid of me. I knew they were around and was being very careful. My sister (who lives here in Arkansas) had walked across the yard barefoot. I had sandals on and walked right where she had walked and lo, I felt pain, looked down and my feet were covered with ants!!!!!!

    [​IMG] Kick that virus's butt girl!!!!

    Those are so painful. I hope you are not allergic to the venom. It can be such a nasty. Maybe they thought the sandals were the enemy! I hope your feet feel better soon.

    I refer to them as Bucks and Does out of habit now. I remember in the 80's reading an article in the Dairy Goat Guide about how we needed to improve the image of goats by not using the antiquated Billy and Nanny. Though it does not really bother me; it just sounds strange now after all these years.

    Today's peeve: people that do not want you to disbud kids. I had a kid sold (word only) to a family that insisted I leave the horns alone.
    They have a couple other horned goats, so this made sense, sort of.
    One of the horned goats head butted them. So they had both goats surgically dehorned. (They never told me this). Now they want me to dehorn a 3 month old buck kid. I'm selling him as a buck, to be wethered. Now he will end up at the sale because they don't want a $50 horned kid. (His horn base is really big, he's a full blooded saanen).
    Live and learn.

    Ugh how frustrating. I have a customer who wants horn left on. I have them pay in full. If they back out. There loss. Horned dairy goats are hard to sell.

    Yes! Everything should be written. It really sticks the world we live in currently where people go back on their word and rely on the other person to fix everything. I learned to never change your practice, if they don't like what you offer than they will go somewhere else

    Moers I agree. Sadly I have rescued the results of those changes imposed on Gods creatures by uncaring vets. Many of them are not pretty.
