It's 11 minutes after midnight...DH and I have been outdoors working since 9 am :yawn:

We were actually wrapping up a day of fixing some leaks in animal housing,trimming some tree branches,filling in a ditch, raking the boys pen out,mowing the lawn ,regular chores ...you know how it is, Well anyway, I was doing my nightly lock up routine around 9 30. All was going well....ok, grab the kids and put them in the stall for the night and we are DONE! Time to relax and go to sleep after a shower :cool: My mother says she'll help carry the kids in...awesome :)...there are 4 of them. I hand my Mom a kid, I take a kid and we put 'em in the stall....ok...back to get the last two. Hand one to Mom...she heads off to put her in while I am grabbing the last baby....as I'm heading out, here comes Mom.With a kid. ??...

"She jumps right back out of the stall and into your Silkie pen!" :chick:

??!! The stall wall is made of pallets, which I covered in chicken wire (I know,tacky,but we were in a pinch!) Anyway, I stand there and watch this adorable little baby pop right up like popcorn and bounce off the wall and onto the ledge to jump down into the silkie pen. :doh:

"Hey hon....we have a problem!":eek:

Yeah, needless to say, we had to throw together another layer of wall and rig up a 5 foot tall gate so she can't get out.....all after a 12 hour work day and we are just getting to relax now!

LOL..... Now I understand why people say "How do you keep 'em in?!" :p

Aw, i can just see baby goats doing that! We have just got into goats and are going to breed them this fall/winter, and my great grandmother has been warning me that they are "jumpers" and i'll never keep them in. Acording to her they have evil intentions to :D
