I definitely have too many goats right now. At least, I am getting caught up on shearing and checking them completely out.
Today, I sheared BeeBee and Joey. Both of them were just awful on the shearing stand, stamping their feet, bucking, trying to get out of the stand, etc. I don’t know if it is the weather or what, but it is exhausting when the goats to be sheared are being especially troublesome.
BeeBee was so awful that when I tried to give her treats everytime she was still, she would spit the treat back out at me. That’s a pissed of goat! I was happy with her condition, though, she is not thin or fat, she’s just right. Except for her attitude.
