Cast- Me (Mum), Husband and 21mths
Starring - Jack and Jill, two Boer goats
we are going to have them for a couple of months to help us with our blackberry assault program, whilst Husband's friend tries to find us some of our own. They are really hard to get here, and very expensive! No wonder, if they eat blackberries then they are an asset to any farm.
Of course, 21mths has no fear, and both goats are de-horned. 21mths in the height of his current control 'enthusiasm', demanded that he feed the goats. We let him, but he struggled to hold the bucket up and refused to set it on the ground. All was good until Jack decided to put his head in the bucket too, whilst Jill was still having a munch, and the pressure forced the bucket to the ground. A full-scale tanty ensued, with stomping feet and shouting at the poor goats! 21mths tried to rip a head out of the bucket, but he will soon learned that goats are stubborn LOL!
Husband then leashed Jack and we walked them both (Jilly just follows), up through the chicken garden and up to the back paddock.
