Goats, gripes, and grasping for greatness
Stick head, stick head, rolly polly stick head

Rex-goat has been making a sport out of getting his head stuck in the fence. He is the only one of the four horned boy kids to be doing this, and he has been doing it multiple times in an hour. He has done it so often that he now actually understands to stand still while we untangle and re-thread him back through the wires now... But this is too dangerous and frustrating to let continue. So tonight he got the stick-head treatment. He now has a fat dowel duct-taped across his horns. I'm going to see how long it takes him to figure out how to use it as a weapon against his brothers during breakfast food bowl defense.

When we went out to give Rex his stick, we got treated to the affections of the blonde mob. Cerryl, Krys, Pan, Rex, and Loki all came up to see what was going on. Actually, the first face in Achaosofkittens's business was Sancho, who got a piece of duct tape stuck to the bridge of his nose for his trouble. We also had some trouble getting the stick onto Rex because Cerryl wanted to taste absolutely everything from CK's shirt to the tape to Rex's ears. CK ended the festivities by putting the roll of tape on one of Loki's horns and calling him a tape dispenser.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention, when I was headed out yesterday, I saw Mr. Stick head in the adjacent pasture. I assume you found him there, but in case he actually can go back and forth, thought you'd want to know experiment was not entirely successful.

Yes, Rex has figured out how to get between the two halves of the pasture (so has Ari). He can't figure out how to get back, unfortunately, which is why there is water on the far side. The big issue is that he isn't getting his head stuck in the wire fencing that rings the outside perimeter fencing, which is unfortunate and potentially fatal. Getting stuck on the wrong side of the division isn't a big deal.
