Who let that squirrel in here?

In the morning feeding routine, Hercules is the one with the good food, because his grain is sweetened with molassas. When they are done eating their grain, the goat boys always try to get into Herc's food too. I've put Hercules's food bowl on a perpendicular piece of fence where there are no goats currently living, so that he can reach over the fence to eat without goat heads getting in the way.

This morning, after filling up all of the water buckets, I walked out of the gate to see a grey squirrel sitting *in* Herc's food dish, merrily munching away. Herc had wandered off already, so I suspected that the squirrel was batting clean-up. The looks that the squirrel was getting from Goblin-goat were quite green with jealousy.
