Runaway goat.

Yesterday we sold a goat to our sorta neighbors, they live down the hill on a little road off of ours, They came and got her and took her home. and we thought that was the end.

Last night the new owner called and said, She got out of the fence and going away from their house and ours. He had followed her for a little bit but she got away. Dad thought that there wasn't much else we could do that night and just wait until morning.

This morning, Dad went out to milk goats, and in our pasture outside of the gate by the goat pen was little miss goat. She had decided to come home. and is now very nonchalantly eating hay and visiting with the other goats like nothing has happened.

Never the less she gets to stay for a few days while they "beef up the security", I feel a little bit sad for her since she worked so hard to get back. but alas, she shall have an adventure to tell about. Oh and she is expecting a kid. Imagine this pregnant lady tromping all over the country :)

I like her. and I think goats are smart.

That is a great story! I feel a little sorry for her too.

It does seem to bad since she so plainly let everyone know what her preference was. Oh well I don't always get what I want either. She is a cute doe. ~♥Anna
