So where did we leave off with our story from yesterday? Oh right, the felons were loose and out eating grass and wandering in the garden…. Fortunately I wasn’t here all alone a friend was here with me. We had many very important plans for the day and none of them were going to happen if we had to stay at the house trying to keep the goats from heading back into town where they block traffic and get arrested. So, we stood helplessly by for some time looking at our wonderful full day slipping away from us being eaten minute by minute by the goats…. Then we devised a plan. In the photo you can see what happens when women fix a fence. That’s right that is a goat lead rope we used. And fortunately it is still holding. But it is only a matter of time before they escape again!

This is what happens when farming incompetent women try to fix things. Once we had it  all “fixed” we rounded up the goats one at a time with the remaining lead line and put them back in the large yard that makes up Goatcatraz Prison turnout, and we closed the gate. They made a B-line right for the spot we had closed up with the extra lead line… Only to discover that incompetent woman farmers are still smarter than goats. Women 1 goats 0. Once we were sure the lead line would hold for a while we left and got on with our day. We are just so glad that it worked because we had so many important things we had to do. And thus ends the tale of the last Felon jail break. The moral of the story is, incompetent farmer women should never be fixing fences, even if they are still smarter than goats.

    This sounds so familiar I’ve had goats for almost fifty years and had a lot of fence fixes like this!!!!

    • Glad to know I am not alone in fixing the fence this way. Sometimes I worry I am doing farming wrong. But if you do it this way too with so much experience, that makes me feel better. Thank you.
