I don’t think I have ever hiked so many miles for so many days.
Who knew tending goats could be such a tiresome task? People who are veteran goat owners that’s who. Me, well I am still knew at it. We are still trying to fix fences that will hold them. But until this past weekend it wasn’t a problem if goats got out because the ones we had didn’t venture far from the house. They were not interested in the mountain behind us
And then Saturday I brought home two new beautiful adult Angora goats. They decided to go adventuring.
And not come back.
We have spent the past two and a half days hiking the mountainside by our home. They were spotted several times. But they can climb a mountain a lot faster than us two legged mammals.
At one point we had both of them in a good location. I went to get some more people so that we could surround them.
These goats were not as tame as ours that we had raised since they were young. They refused to come to us even when enticed by yummy treats.
When I returned my awesome husband had somehow managed to snare one of them! He is amazing!
So we have one goat. The other left and we cannot seem to find her. Unfortunately the one we have is the whether and the one lost still is the Doe I wanted to breed in the future.
I am happy to have one, but so so sad that the other is still missing. We will keep our eye for her, as well as our neIghbors.
I pray that she will be safe from harm and will venture back to where she can be found. Will you also pray for a happy ending?
Looking forward to a Happy Day.
