    Ugh! I know! It’s been pouring here too. It dropped from 72F to 46F in ONE night! My poor goats didn’t know what hit them. I had to put them in the barn last night cause it started pouring down rain. And had to put a heat lamp on for all the cats. It’s FREEZING!

    26 degrees? Heat wave! We woke up to 6 degrees this morning with around 2 feet of snow. It's not supposed to get this cold in October for heaven's sake! Wait till December--sheesh!

    6 degrees? How can a human (much less a goat, big babies) survive that cold?! Brrrr glad I live down south!

    But what I want to know is how a human or goat can survive summers in Texas. That sounds absolutely awful!!

    This is a silly pet peeve but has happened so frequently over the past few weeks it's driving me crazy!

    We live right on a main road so the goats get many visitors. We have a "Notes to the Goats" mailbox stocked with sticky notes and a pen, and receive lots of wonderful notes from strangers stopping to say hello to the herd. But recently we've found all these notes from little kids (or adults??) who have written "EAT ME!", all crumpled up, as they've obviously tried to feed them to the goats. Our signs that say "DON'T FEED THE GOATS, it can make them sick" don't seem to be doing the trick.....

    ...and don't get me started on the crackers, candy, and bits of trash that I find thrown over the fence into the goat pen.... :bonk:

    The security cameras and motion detectors we installed a few months back have brought more peace of mind! :cooldude:

    I'm glad I have my goats behind my house and not noticeable to anyone. I feel bad for folks who have to battle the looky - loos and problem neighbors.

    On September 8th we went from 92° to 28° in under 12 hours. That was the most dramatic drop I've seen. Colorado wildfires were out of control at the time so there was plenty of color commentary about hell freezing over!

    Woah that's some crazy weather! Did you have to do anything to keep that kind of change from stressing out the goats?

    There wasn't much to be done except make sure everyone was bedded down deep and had plenty of hay to last through the night. Neither goats nor horses had winter coats yet so I was worried about them but they did just fine.

    All we did was drive across the panhandle (as quickly as possible) in August; "I CAN'T BREATHE! GET ME OUT OF THESE CLOTHES!!!":imok:
    Not that Arkansas was much better but at least my sister has a pool.

    Regarding the jerks that are trying to feed the goats paper- can you put hotwires on the people side and if they lean in, get zapped? :nod:

    One thing drives me nuts is when my family says "they'll be fine" when you worry about the goats, of if they say "they're just animals."

    And if gets on my nerves when people don't use punctuation or have run-on sentences when they write- life is hard enough without trying to read a darn word salad.
