Here We Go Again!


The culprit! Again!


Kola's tail is finally growing back from last spring's goat munching grooming sessions!


Misty's tail just a few short weeks ago.


Now look at it! It is pitiful! This is from this morning.


In the end I've completely solved this problem! There is no longer contact between the two species! HA!

Clever girl!
I love it when people come up with creative ideas to fix a problem :)

Here's to long, beautiful flowing horse tails soon!

Now only if the goat boys won't eat through the tarps, LOL!

Nuzzling Muzzles said...

Argh, how frustrating. I hope the tarps last. If they start eating those, try chicken wire. The horses must like the feeling of having their tails "groomed" by the goats, because they must stand there a while to let it happen.

Callie said...

They do stand there, the dorks! They'll miss the warmth of their tails this winter! LOL

Andrea said...

Poor horsey tail!! She had such a nice thick tail. Maybe the trimming helps it get thicker?? Okay, most likely not. But good idea. And I hope it grows back. Sometimes when they go short they don't grow back.

Callie said...

LOL, Andrea, It had better grow back or we'll be havin' goat soup!

Funny! Here, it's sheep that eat the horses' manes & tails. Sunny spent a whole year looking like Moe from the Three Stooges. And two of the horses had hock length tails for I don't know how long. I don't think fly season was pleasant, either!

nuzzling muzzles - I think you're right, it must feel good, because they sure don't seem to mind. Sillies!

At least you know who the culprit is. I have someone here chewing on manes and tails but I haven't been able to figure out who the responsible party is.

Goat lips! so cute! Good luck on the tail thing! our goats used to EAT Lester's chestnuts right off his leg while he grazed, didn't bother him and I didn' have to pick his chestnuts ever!

OMG. The things goats get up to. That is so funny and so frustrating. Well done you for finding a solution. Hope it lasts.
