    Bad goat :)! That reminded me of my buck from last year, Saint, ALWAYS got his head stuck in the hay feeder, and after it happened 3 days in a row, all of the bars were cut off and grate was welded on. It took him AGES to get that hay out, but i didnt have to worry about him hanging himself!

    Mine is getting a sick Doe, by choice rescue. Doing everything you know to do, then not really being able to figure out what got her over the hump.
    Kind of wish goats were not largely ignored when it comes to research, medication etc.

    This conversation:
    Them: wow you raise goats?!
    Me: yep I love them.
    Them: you must have so much free time!
    Me: uh why?
    Them: because goats are like the easiest things in the world!
    Me: umm no...*starts explaining goat management
    Them: *zones out and then says: yep I think I’ll buy me a few goats to mow my yard! Better keep the metal cans away from them though!! Anyway bye!
    :eyeroll:

    Pet Peeve- Craigslist ads for puppies. There are so many that start out ****poo, all the poodle crosses then they claim they are AKC registered. No way! They are charging $1000 for mutts, cute but still mutts. Just because it is crossed with a poodle doesn't make it a valuable dog. Some are registered with the CKC, but they seem to take any dog.

    People get taken all the time. Unbelievable.

    2nd peeve- All these people that adopted a cute puppy in March during the lockdowns are now dumping all those dogs on shelters and our country roads. Gee, a live animal still needs care even if the lockdowns are lifted. So infuriating and sad, too. Poor dogs.....(and cats).

    Gosh all we have to do to get a new dog is wait a few days. We probably got like ten stray cats living in our various barns along with our own. It’s sad that people just don’t care.

    Yeah! All that about animals. Mixed breeds used to be "free to good home". (Not always a good plan I know.) But my dh's cousins sell poodle mixes for thousands$ and can't keep up with demand. Glad someone has disposable cash.
    And we also have no shortage of cats!

    Pet peeve is the nastiness of the horse forums. Everyone has to start somewhere

    Here is a pet peeve. People who take out their political anger on innocent animals and farmers. I want to cry today. Protesters set alight 100 000 hectares of farm land in one of provinces which has caused the destruction of 100 farm homes, 600 feed holding barnes and hundreds of cattle, sheep and wildlife are now dead. Its taken 3 days to bring it under control. One farmer got 3rd degree burns and is fighting for his life and he is 25. 2 weeks ago a 21 year old farmer was brutally attacked and murdered. Ugh. Land grabbing is so rife only to have squaters destroy good ariable land and do nothing with it.
    Sorry. My rant for the day. I hate politics.

    Wow! That is somewhat more than a pet peeve. I hate it when any political matters hurt the innocent.

    It is horrible. Its devistating. With lock down the only industry still going normally is our farming industry. This is our main production region. All that is happening now is mass kulling, no money coming in and loss of work. We will need to import food which will raise the yax on food and will cause mass starvation because unemployment has now increased by 75% All this because some people dont want to buy land, pay land tax or water and lights and believe they are entitled because of something thats almost 300 years in the past. It drives me insane. And the government is enabling all of it. And poor animals are the side victims in the whole scenario. Uuuuggggghhhh. Why did the Greeks invent government!
