What a fun and exhausting day! I walked 1/2 a mile to get our mail. I unlocked the box and heard this "baa.... maa..." and looked up to see two adorable goats running straight at me. I hurried off the roadway and walked back towards where they live.
They were so cute and behaved almost like dogs.
I tried to say "good-bye" and shoo them back home but they kept following me. I got so far that I got worried and turned around back to their house. I told the owner the goats had followed me. He said, "That's what they do." (Um.... okay..)
I asked, "Will they find their way home?"
Unplussed, he said, "Yes."
So they followed me to the horse barn. I figured I would give them oats and while they were eating oats, I'd run home.
Well, I opened the tack room and they followed me. The horse got upset and chased them out into the field and into a corner. So there I was trying to get between the horse and the goats. The horse wanted to kick them or rear up at them and they wanted to crawl into my arms!
Around and around we went until I finally got them out of the horse area. Yup, they followed me home, the oats were of no concern to them!.
Once at home, they started to eat every plant Jack and I have managed to keep alive!
It was another 20 minutes with me chasing them around the house and trying to get the ATV out of the garage while keeping them out of the garage. Oh my! I was tired to say the least.
Then I had to start and stop and call them or "baa" at them to follow me. I led them home and closed their pen with them inside. To heck with the owner!
