Because of the mud and juggling Briar around the cows, yesterday I put her in the buck pen with the boys.  While the goats fall under her protection, Briar considers herself a sheepdog, not a goat dog. The goats have never been fond of Briar, and thus no one was particularly thrilled when I locked her in with the buck pen.  As I filled the water trough I watched this little drama play out.

 Jethro - young buck, not even a yearling yet, who believes he's Billy Bad-ass since he's the only one with testicles. (These things get him in trouble.)

Briar - self-appointed Guardian Of The Galaxy

As soon as Briar entered the pen, I noted Jethro giving her the hairy eye. She ignored him. He shook his ears at her a few times. She continued to ignore him.  He got bold enough to stiff-walk her way with his head down. She turned her face to the side, just barely in his direction, and lifted her lip in a silent snarl.

 And Jethro decided that retreat was the better part of valor. Interesting. This is the same idiot who thinks he can spar with the cattle. Perhaps Delta knocked some sense into him when he tried to ram her calf a few weeks ago. Whodathunkit?

This cracks me up. My Nubian/Saanen wether occasionally seems to think it might be a good idea to antagonize the LGDs. He puts his hackles up, stiff-legged walks over to them, & starts rearing up & landing hard right close to them but never quite bunts them. My stud ignores him, my bitch will eventually roar at him to shove off. Then he trots away bobbing his goofy goat head like he was just minding his own business & the dogs were mean to him for no reason.

That is so classic GOAT, isn't it!
