Back from OZ


This morning as the sun rose and I pulled the ear plugs out of my ears I looked out the second story bedroom window and saw all the one and two year old goat boys running around the back yard and standing in the pine trees eating all the needles they could reach. So much for a slow greeting to the morning....

I ran downstairs, jumped into my boots and grabbed the Shepard's hook. Out the door I went and I sure gave them a fright... I think they knew they screwed up BIG TIME!!! I looked quickly to see how in the world they got out. It seems that during the night with the horrible winds a large feed bunker managed to leave the ground and smashed into one of the gates and broke it.. Well, smart goats that they are took advantage and out they went. So with the lack of sleep and not being a happy camper, I found myself scream "BACK, NOW" and they took off running for the downed gate. All but one went without an problem... The one left is too smart for his own good and I was not in the mood to run around the farm trying to get him so I asked for my friend, partner and heart - Kasha... Yep, my sweet old gal (12 year old Great Pry)listened to my every word and in a blink of an eye she went round the left side and drove him back into their barn... My Very Great Kasha!!!

So into the house I went to make scrambled eggs and toast for my hard working Kasha.... After breakfast it was a morning of fixing the gate, picking up all the broken things that had been tossed around, moving the huge dog house back under the tree for Sophia and then spending some time hugging my hardworking old gal Kasha... I am so thankful she has spent her life with me. I had to giggle because she would give those goats a big bark every time she saw them. I can't imagine what she was calling them but they sure deserved it.

So we are back from OZ and not finding any flying monkeys only naughty goats boys.

At least they stayed in your zip code when they got out. Any time my critters get out they seem to want to see if they can make it to the next state ;)

Jane over the years I have put in place several stop gaps so if someone get out I might have a chance of them not getting to far. I also have goats who will tattle on who ever gets out unless they are taken with the "BAD Goatie"... My dogs also keep me very informed including if they think a hen is walked too far away from their coop.

I will pass on to Kasha that you think she is a good girl - we all like to hear it sometimes. Candy and Kristina I still remember the day I found her at an Alpaca Show in which I was a vendor. The owner was dyeing of cancer and needed to place her puppies - I just could not resist and that was 12 years ago. My soul is richer for having her in my life, I think I am a better person because of her.
