Well.... The goats....
They would not stay in the pasture if the boys left the pasture... They didn't care about being shocked...they would just bust through the fence to chase after the boys.
Poor goats, I think being stuck in a barn for a month has made them nutty.
Anyway, I told the kids to make a scarecrow. So the kids got some boy clothes, stuffed them with junk, made the clothes stand up with some temporary fence posts in the middle of the pasture.
The goats are now happy. The kids call it the "calmgoat" since it is not to scare crows, it is there to calm goats.
We keep looking out the window... After about three HOURS, the goats are finally grazing about 8 feet away from the "calm goat" instead of only two feet away.
Awww.... Need to get some field fence next this way it will keep stray dogs out... /Set some hot wire just for dogs. on the outside.
