One of my does is being a real butt. She used to be a favorite, but she's really become a naughty girl, and as my husband says she is 'disrespectful.' She's 2nd from bottom of the pecking order now, even her old buddy doesn't hang out with her -- her buddy is now herd queen. This past weekend, she figured out a way to get through the fence in the creekbed - creek has been dry for over a month, and I have a little gate there that raises with the current when the creek gets high <hard to explain>. Well like I said this past weekend she figured out how to get through it and had all the others out in the woods. I brought them back in...and waited ALL day watching them, and saw 'her' leading them to the gate. By the time I got back there she and 2 others were out. I blocked it up real good since there is no hope of having enough rain to get the flow going again yet. She tried to run from me because she didn't want to go back in the pen. She used to never run like that, but you could see the 'look' on her face, it was hard to explain, but she just didn't want to co operate and tries to lay down when you are pulling her back to the pen <I had to use the horn/tail trick to get her going>. So today, our neighbor - a worker at the restaurant next door knocks on the door...she is out AGAIN! This time she got through a hole in the fence. My husband doesn't have a gate up going into the woods, he just ties off the fence. Well as you might have guessed we have field fencing and when you pull and stretch for so long the 'spaces' get wider. Well I have no doubt in my mind she squeezed through one of those squares because it was stretched out A LOT. I did a temporary fix on that this morning -- permanent fix WILL come this weekend -- GATE. She tried her laying down stuff with me again, had to pull her by horn/tail. She is the ONLY one that I have problems like this with. If we turn them out into the backyard, she'll try to sneak by us to go into the front yard. You tell her no, and wave your arms at her, and she'll dodge you and try to get by. Naughty, naughty girl! Our other girls and our young buck can be stubborn, but we don't have these kind of issues with them not at all. What do you do with a doe like this ! :hair: I know I fixed the spots she found to get out of, I am still afraid to leave the house today. But I need to get feed and a few other things. I'm almost tempted to lock her up in our smaller pen while I am gone just so I don't have to worry about what she'll do next.
