Well, the good news is in. The check from the auction house came in. The two bucks sold separately - probably as breeding stock. Net result, we got a reasonable price for each.
We still have the fence problem to fix, but without that dang buck, we have not had any complaints from the neighbors about our goats eating their ornimental plants and gardens. That is the REAL good news.
Good fences make for good neighbors. I wish our neighbor would help us get this shared fence fixed. Not only does our goats escape, but his horse visits our pasture. We can be out in the pasture to watch the goats, but his horse is left in his pasture without supervision. I doubt he even realizes that his horse simply walks through the fense.
In addition to fixing the fence, we have to get the tractor up and running. Just another problem on the ranch...
