I'm not sure what it is about my husband when he feeds, but the horses and goats have developed some odd morning habits now. I went out to feed and I feed the horses each only one half of scoop of grain first and then I put two flakes of hay in their feeder. I then go back to the feed shed and get a large full scoop of grain for the goats and one flake of hay for them. Once the girls' grain is their exactly the same over the fence feeders, Misty will now take one, maybe two large gulps of grain while Kola scrambles to get as much as she can, then Misty decides that Kola has more and kicks her out of her grain and Kola tries to finish what Misty has left. In the mean time while I'm feeding the goats, Herman goes straight to what is now Misty's feeder, which originally starts as Kola's feeder and fights Misty via head butt and her ears back to get that grain before he realizes that his goat buddies are scoffing up their grain. It's like a well rehearsed comedic ballet!
