The Great Goat Escape

Tuesday afternoon, Little Bear and Whiskey made their great escape.  Brett isn't sure exactly how they managed it, but he looked out the window and there they were in the pasture with Flash, Mufasa and Jackson.

Brett knew he'd be able to take Bear back to the pen with no trouble.  Bear loves Brett.

But Whiskey is another story.  He's a shy little goat and if he thinks he is going to be caught, he takes off.

Brett called our neighbor Cindy and she brought Vanessa over after picking her up from school.  Whiskey loves Vanessa.  It's mutual.  As expected, Whiskey went right over to Vanessa and Brett was able to pick him up and carry him back to the goat pen.

Fortunately, I had taken a bunch of pictures of the goats while Buffy was here last weekend.  We spent quite a bit of time in the goat pen with that day.

Jackson came over to join the party.

Little Bear chewed on Buffy's clothes, Thistle rubbed his head on the soles of our shoes, and Whiskey and Cowboy went back and forth looking for treats.

The goats were in heaven.

After Brett and Vanessa returned Little Bear and Whiskey to the safety of the pen, they worked on reinforcing the fencing.  Brett isn't sure where they pushed through or crawled under.  He suspects it was possibly behind the wild blackberry bushes so they reinforced the fence there.
