Thank you! The hot wire is a great idea. I think that is exactly what is next on the list!Dang, hard thread to read. So sorry for your losses. That picture of you goat and Mr Peter is priceless. Save that; pictures like that transport one's descendants to a bygone era. Keep all your male friends peeing to their hearts' content around your goat pen. It works. Can you run a VERY hot electric wire around the outside of your paddock? We have bobcat and coyote galore here in KY and have had very good luck protecting my chickens and goats with a hot wire.
