OOPS! He Did It Again.....

~He did it again. Goth got his own right leg caught up in his right bottom horn. I wrote a post about this July 16, 2008.Goth seems to have learned a thing or two since then because after hobbling around all day on 3 legs he finally untangled his leg by himself.He does well with 3 legs though, he was able to shake his horns at Delilah and hoard all the alfalfa , he was able to hobble fast enough to elude me in my attempt to disentangle his leg from his horn, and finally, he DID actually get his leg out all by himself. Hooray Goth!~

Kathy, I do not know if sheep are anything like goats in this respect, but it seems the goats that I have that get themselves in certain positions, tend to repeat it over and over again. You would think they would learn, but curiousity seems to get the better of them!

And I had to smile. I wonder how he gets his leg up over (under) the horn?!

Silly boy!

I saw the title and knew it was Goth! Our goats tend to get caught in fence - the same ones over and over. Saddest are the little ones who grow horns quickly - they are so amazed about being stuck somewhere they easily accessed just last week!

He's just showing off!!! I can bearly bend over to tie my shoes!

Awww.... poor Goth.. must be quite an adventure to have to live with horns like that!

Farm Chick Paula said...

*LOL* I just read what Mildred wrote- That was a good one!

I can't get over his horns, they are just amazing. Glad he was able to get his leg out on his own, it sure can be frustrating when you are trying to help them and they won't let you!

Mary, you're right. Year after year, it IS the same ones....they really don't seem to learn, do they?

Amy, silly for sure!

LindaSue, I know what you mean about the little ones who seem surprised because they fit through the week before. I have to laugh at them AFTER I disentangle them!

Mildred, that's funny! My back hurts too and I had to figure out how to catch and help him by myself! But I am so glad he loosened his leg himself this time.

Paula, it is an adventure for him and us. I am impressed at the neck muscles it takes to haul that rack around though.

Jennifer, that is the way with animals and US, isn't it?It is so hard to help when the help is aggressively unwanted, and Goth does not want to help himself!

What is he doing to get that leg up there anyway? Maybe I don't want to know. I would be terrified to try and help him get it out.

Poor Goth! I'm glad he figured it out! Kathy, I read your comment about the post on my husbands hands and I just love your last post! How sweet and touching! Blessings,Kathleen

I have not had many experiences with farm animals, but I did get butted by a baby goat and IT HURT! Those horns look menacing!

Daisy said...

Oh dear, poor Goth! Good to hear he was able to free himself. It made me smile some thinking about you chasing him around and him on three legs refusing to let you help him.

Oh that made me laugh, what a silly goat! I'm glad he worked out how to get his leg out. He's a beautiful animal. One of our 2 cats, BlackJack, has spent days stuck up our huge evergreens. The last time he actually came down in the night by himself, so hopefully he'll have learnt that what goes up.....
