Baby goat in trouble

Summer
If a baby goat is still screaming loud enough to be heard in the driveway, it isn't in so much trouble that it's dying *immediately*.

... No matter how many times I tell myself this, every time is still an emergency.

Misty had her head caught between the gate to the garden and the gatepost, on the hinge side, naturally. Frustrated adrenalin was insufficient for me to get the gate off of the hinges. Instead, I had to lift her body up, push her head down, and align her smack against the fence, then she did the rest. She is totally fine. She isn't even wet. She either burned off the rain or got caught after the rainstorm passed.

Poor baby goat! I'm sure it was scary.

It's a bit amusing how indignant the baby goats get when they are freed. As soon as they get some mommy reassurance, they start glaring at me as though their predicament was my fault somehow.

There are some screams of G's that when they go off it takes every ounce of effort not to kick the adrenaline and go running. So I totally get your "It is an emergency!"

I used to go tearing off to the pasture at a dead run. Now, sometimes, I'll have the self control to change my shoes and get gloves first.

And I usually remember to throw on shorts when Gwen wakes me up by screaming in the night.
