Well I let my goats out as usual in the backyard so that they could graze. I do this everyday, so I wasn't expecting anything bad to happen. Well that was WRONG!!! Cause all of a sudden I hear Orion screaming, okay I think he's cryin' for mama. Screams again and again and AGAIN! So I go out to check on him and I couldn't find him until he screamed again. He was in our ABOVE ground pool!!! I'm so happy that I heard him screaming and that he can apparently swim! I will never leave him unattended near it AGAIN! I feel like such a bad goat mama. :( I could have lost my baby. (I didn't know he could jump that high yet!) So now I will be PARANOID!!!

Good thing you were out there! Funny because my little Sage did the same thing recently, almost even posted about it! I was actually in the pool, I was under water and felt something hit me in the leg, since I was supposed to be the only one in the pool I jumped up to see what it was, poor Sage was screaming her head off wanting back out, I cuddled her abit and helped her out. She's such a trouble maker, can't keep her in a pen, today she jumped it and ended up hanging upside down with her foot tangled in the top wire, thankfully, other than being alittle sore she's fine.

That is so scary!! I am so glad that your little goat is okay. . . . My first baby doe, a pygmy bottle-baby, escaped from her crate one day when she was two weeks old. She jumped into the water trough (about the size of a pool) and was screaming for help. I was far away and didn't hear her but thankfully my grandpa and uncle heard her and ran about 300 yards to save her. She wasn't breathing when they got her out and did CPR on her and saved her!! I am sooo happy they did that! My precious Rosie is almost 4 years old now and is my favorite goat! Funny that her half-sister (also a bottle-baby) did the exact same thing only we got her out right away. . . . I am so glad your little goat is okay.
