    Lol I was trimming hooves tonight and Lilly my Alpine yearling wouldn't quit pulling my sock hat off and putting her mouth right in my face and blowing in it. Goat breath reeks by the way

    No kidding! I have 3 that like to get up close and personal. They will get in my face and give goat kisses (Eddie being the turd that turns the kiss into a quick bite) and without fail as soon as they get up close they cough up a little cud to chew on. Reminds me of my wife's morning breath.

    What I want to know is how much knit and woven fabric goats need to have in their diet.

    :think:

    Clearly I'm not giving them enough.

    Is that why they chewed holes in the sleeves of my favorite coat? At least I 'm not letting them get another one right away:laugh:

    Strings on hoodies, sleeves, shirt tails, shoe laces, butt pockets on pants..... And if you don't know they are behind you, some of them can have your shirt tail half swallowed before you even know it's happening.

    I stopped taking the tags off boots (since I have to replace them every 3-6 months). Those plastic circles HURT when I pull them, but a goat can snip through it soo easy. I've trained them to hand me the pieces once they remove it. Then I wore my dress boots to the barn, and somebody removed the zipper pull for me. :-( She was sooo proud of herself!

    :ROFL: I bet she was proud!


    All my hoodies get the string cut off before it is ever worn for chores.

    Huh....? So now I know that is why my goat clothes drawer gets replenished often, because sometimes I forget to change cloths, and bam, another shirt or a pair of pants ends up on the goat drawer.. LOL :)

    Huh.

    Mine gets replenished because I didn't do laundry in a month and had to buy new clothes so I'd have something to wear. :snowcheese: Oh, wait, no, that's my husband. "I'm out of underwear again!" "I just bought you a 20-pack at Costco!" "Huh. Maybe I should check the dryer. Great. Now I don't have room for all these underwear! We need a bigger dresser."

    LOL I am right there with you all on having them in the middle of EVERYTHING. OMG, any time we have done anything out in their pen, we'd either have them right under our feet, or have to lock them in a separate pen lol!!!

    This past spring we needed a weaning pen for the doe kids, and hubby was using twine to help him get the fenceline straight. I warned him what would happen lol. He told me to hold the rope & keep them off of it, good luck with that lol

    If it turns out here are a could of videos... Hubby was getting a bit irritated, but I couldn't help but laugh! I wish I had gotten more video! Silly critters!!!

    I totally get it lol. I was putting up a portable shed as a shelter the other day and mine were all up in my business. I had my ratchet set on the ground in it's little box, but I didn't close the box (my bad!). One of my does was nosing around. Just as I was going to stop her, she grabbed the lip of the box in her mouth and dumped the whole thing out. BRAT! While I was trying to put the legs in, another doe was rubbing on one of the legs I'd already put on.
