Goats are extremely intelligent creatures. At least that's what my goat-raising books tell me. Goat kids also love squeezing into tight spaces.
So last year when our Rosie started crawling into the feeder to eat (and even sleep), I didn't think much of it. The chickens didn't seem to mind either.
I think mama Lucy was a bit curious as to her babe's latest antics. Or maybe she was just jealous -- knowing Lucy's eating habits, I'm sure she'd love to immerse herself in her food.
I figured Rosie would simply grow out of it -- the feeder and the behaviour.
Fast forward a year later: she's still eating in the feeder. How she squeezes her pygmy-goat girth through the opening is beyond me.
I think she's laughing at me, don't you?
