Disappearing Goats

After writing my last post about Joe's Houdini goats, the chicken wire fence was taken down and rolled up.  With the fence gone we hoped it meant the goats would be moved but, no, Buck and the Mamas were still there and freely wandering about the adjacent properties.

Although we enjoyed them as our neighbors so too did the coyotes.  Buzzards flying overhead led us to the remains of two goats over two days.  With their haphazard fence they were easy prey.  With no fence at all they were a nightly all-you-can-eat-buffet.

Yesterday, Buck and the Mamas were goneWe caught a last glimpse of them as they were being trailered away.

Buck and The Mamas


We wish all the best for them: woody weeds and bushes to browse, a sunny spot, sweet alfalfa treats, and a sturdy fence.
