Too Many Goats!!
Recently, we had some excitement on the farm. While going out to the tractor barn, we saw and heard the goats running and playing in the pasture. This is no big deal, until Michelle noticed that some of the goats running around had beards!!! Wait a second - that means the bucks are in with the does!! Thankfully, no one was in season and would not stand still to be bred. But they were chasing all the does around. The stress could cause them to miscarry. We both broke the land speed record to get into the pasture. Through two locked gates we went, then when got there we had to catch the bucks and haul them back into their area. Then we had to check all the does to see if the bucks got anywhere. After a thorough check, all the girls were fine. The bucks are now back in their area with a buffer zone between them.
