I took the long way to my sons school today and i passed a friends property. They recently got two goats and i saw one kind of standing in a funny position. Being the busy body i am i turned around and went to inspect. Sure enough she had her head stuck in a fence. It was a wire fencing that has kind of square slots in the wire. Does that make sense? Any other part of the fence she would have been fine but the rebarb post was making the square smaller. She was trying to get out and making a horrible bleating noise. When she saw me she looked relieved. I tried to help her get out but there just wasn't enough space. Her horns were getting caught and if you pushed down to get the horns out the wire cut into her throat. I ended up going to the place they got the goats from...told him what was going on and he gave me some wire cutters. He wasn't really wanting to but since i knew the family he let me. He kept telling me it will get free on it's own. I just couldn't see how she would. I went back let the little girl go.....by the way she had been stuck for over an hour.....well i know she was stuck for an hour not sure how long before that. When i took the wire cutters back the guy told me "Well when that happens you should leave them like that for awhile....that way they won't do it again".....She had been stuck awhile already. Then i started feeling badly thinking i shouldn't have cut my friends fence...... Anyway my friend finally called me and told me she was happy i had gotten the goat free. What would you have wanted done if your goat was caught like that? Would you be ticked if your fence was cut to get your goat out? Would you have wanted to try to get her out yourself first? Thanks for listening to me ramble!
