The Trouble With Chip

Chip is a very mischievous fellow, always getting into trouble or into things or places he doesn’t belong. 

Yesterday Chip took over one of the folding chairs and soon found that he was trapped, no matter how hard he tried he couldn’t get out.  I rescued him and even though he was a little embarrassed I soon found him in my lap as I was trying to relax in the chair.

Chip’s newest trick is to wait for the other goats to go outside the goat barn and then he grabs the clasp on the door with his teeth and pulls the door closed, locking the others outside.  Once they gather around the door and are crying to get in he bashes the door open with his head, scattering the others away in surprise.

Today I couldn’t get him to put his head in the locking area of the goats stand since the last time I used it to secure him to put blood stop on his scur.  He is trouble, but in a loveable roguish kind of way.

    Goats have such personality! Love this post and the title. The first photo is hilarious!

    Haaaa!!! That first picture is a hoot! As is your description of how he locks everybody out of the barn and then does a surprise bash-through manuever. Only the very smartest of goats do that kind of thing, you know. 🙂

    Michaele – As you know goats are so much fun to have around….so long as you keep an eye on them.Danni – Goats are smart, too smart for their own good (and mine) at times. Of course that is why I love them.OFG – I don't know how he figured out how to close the door with his teeth but he sure is taking advantage of the knowledge. The goats around here all now run to any lounge chair that is left out, oddballs one and all.

    Doesn't that just come with having goats though?

    KK – You are correct, that is part of the charm of living with goats.

    LOL! Perhaps why we have sheep and a milk cow instead of goats! 🙂 http://homestead-for-sale.blogspot.com/

  10. Chip in the chair is so funny! This post really makes me want goats, just because they'd make me laugh!

    Lynn – Goats are and excellent source of laughter, but they are also very needy. I think they are worth it and you would probably love them. They would do great on your property.
