I Got Him Back

I had to just laugh at the situation.
We got a call from a guy about a mile down the road who asked if we were missing a goat. We described it to him and he said he had it. 
So last night before the storms hit we went down and picked up Buck Owens II. Apparently BO II turned around and came back. He ran away in a complete different direction, but somehow found his way back and down the street into this guys goat pen. He doesn't know how, but he did.
He is home now, secured and happy. I put him in the same pen as BO III

 Speaking of which, BO III is really loving life. He is so small he is able to get in the chicken roost. Cute little bugger.

Now with two bucks I have to figure out who is going to be bred to who. I have about three months before they are ready to breed and by then I might need to sell one to re-coop some of the cost of these high dollar bucks.
I really like BO III so I think he will be the primary. 
Those storms last night were rough, many Texans lost their lives and property from them. Tornadoes touched down all around us, some up to a mile wide. We are safe and assessing the damage.

  1. Well, you could use BO II for the first round of breeding & then sell him, but keep BO III for next year's breeding so you won't have to worry about any inbreeding with your female kids the following year?

    Glad you didn't have any storm troubles.

      Most of the time they end up as dinner for something or somebody.

  3. MDR,

    Thank God you all are safe, I hope you didn't get a lot of damage. I worried about my family and friends (you included) when I heard about the severe weather. Prayers are being sent do all those touched by these tornadoes.

    I'm happy to hear your goat was found and in good health. Apparently the little guy loves to go exploring :-)

    1. Thanks for the thoughts DFW.
      #1 is long gone and we thought #2 was as well. I like #3 a little better because he wants to be here.

  8. I had thought maybe a goat would return. maybe BO I will return unless someone thinks the tooth fairy left them a goat. This has been a good goat tale.
