Heidi, Tucker and Daisy's Mom blogging today. As Tuck and Daisy have posted in the past, there is a large farm up the road from us with a multitude of creatures, including deer, cows and goats. Yesterday, due to my schedule we went for a mid-morning walk. As we were coming back by the farm, I saw a little goat with it's head stuck in the fence. I didn't try to help it as there was nowhere to safely leave the dogs and if the dogs get too close to the goats, it just spooks them. Usually I have noticed that once the dogs go by, the goats get themselves out of the fence just fine. It sort of crossed my mind that I should drive by on my way to work and check on it, but when I got home routine took over and I spaced it.
Cut to this morning. We were on an early morning walk, and when we turned around by the farm, there was the same poor little goat, still stuck in the fence. So the dogs and I trotted off to the farmhouse and told them about it. Luckily the 2 St. Bernards did not eat us. In a couple of minutes when we were walking home, someone came to rescue it. So it is not stuck anymore, but I feel bad that I didn't do the right thing yesterday. I also was annoyed with the goat's owners, that they didn't find it sooner on their own. But as I was walking home, I thought about it more, and realized I used to have a horse who was out in a pasture all winter with a bunch of cows. Someone brought hay out to them every couple of days, but if it was really cold, or I had a lot of classes, I didn't go see her every day, so I suppose something like that could have happened, and maybe I shouldn't judge them. Hate these questions with no right answers.
Now, back to our regularly scheduled blog fun.
