That Dang Buck, Redeux
Well, that dang buck did it again. He broke out of confinement in the house compound. And, of course, the first thing he did was lead his mini-herd back to the neighbor's place. Now, we had to do something I really hate to do - stake out an animal. We put a collar around his neck and attached it to an old dog runner. We made sure he has food, water and shade within reach of the runner.
This only has to hold him until Wednesday. Then, we will take him down to the weekly goat sale and he goes on the auction block. You might say he has gone from being an unnamed buck to one that carries a name - "4Sale"
This buck has really fouled our relations with our neighbor. Good thing the neighbor lives half a mile away, on the south side of the property. Of course, this is one of the reasons we moved to Texas - to get away from living cheek-on-jowl with neighbors.
