I don't know why this video exists, but I'm glad it does.

Title is misleading...she's like the Pied Piper...leading a bunch of bunnies with a bag of goodies! Sweet, cute nonetheless.

Bobbi said...

That tether is more than long enough for the Billy to play if he was so inclined...

Deborah Hettler Oda said...

So adorable

Edna Yearwood said...

my billy is mean he will knock you down is he gets a chance so he stays tied up . He has left bit bruises on me and tried to tromple me when I go to feed him and I bottle feed him and was always gentle with him , but needless to say I think I had companey that was mean to him . All I can say is I better not catch anyone being mean to one of my aniamals...

The billy goat is the best tasting meat ever. You've to tie them up tho, they're crazier than Justin Bieber at a Brazilian resort

Ginger20037 said...

The one tied up would be the billy, AKA daddy goat, there could be multiple reasons as to why he could be tied up. 1) he can be mean to people 2) could be one that tries to breed everything in sight (I had a rooster once like that, went for everything except the hens) 3) he could be one to constantly get his head stuck in the fence (my billy now is like that I finally gave up and opened the gate, his horns were the cause) 4) could be going after other animals (my nanny chases our dogs away from their food and eats it and tries to get the horses feed too, if ours, with our yearlings help, didn't tear up our fence they'd be back in it) 5) to keep him at home instead of roaming other people's property, where he could get hurt, when fencing either wont keep him in or he constantly gets stuck in it.

BUCKS!!!!!!! MALE GOATS ARE CALLED BUCKS NOT BILLYS!

No fair using your big ass balls as a counterweight.

Nelly Know It All said...

They can be a billy or a buck, but never a dollar ;-). http://www.ask.com/question/what-is-a-male-goat-called

geoff harper said...

Miserable bastard. No wonder they are trying to get away from him.

Mike said...

Lenny, my buck, (who has just become a father - two more expectant goats due to deliver this week) was surprisingly docile when I took him (the farm I bought my first two goats were going to kill him as surplus to requirements, low down the herd order etc)

For a goat that was unused to much human contact he was very happy to interact with me and my dog, in fact would often come and lie next to me when I would go for a wander in the forest. When mating season came last year, of course he was peeing in his mouth and over his beard to impress the girls (it worked) but it's only recently that he's become a little more aggressive, mock charging and pushing against me, I'm putting it down to the fact he's frustrated because he wants to have another go at servicing the girls, who of course are having none of it!

All of my goats are free ranging, which includes about 40 acres of forest as well as pasture, but they tend to stay close to the house and outbuildings (not wanting to ,miss out on anything that might be happening)

I have to say that I am more than happy with the decision to farm goats and now that I have milk as well, well, what more can I say. (tempted to make something similar to what I've seen in the video for theirs, and my entertainment) :)

Mike said...

Not really, it's much better to tether them than have them damaging everything in sight, and as long as they have enough tether and are moved often it doesn't upset them.

wow said...

Wowwwwww. Please proofread before you post. That literally hurt my head to read.

IDConstitutionist said...

I agree. As long as the hair, during the time of rut and they are spraying themselves, does not touch the meat, any age buck or doe is good eating. Have a couple to put in the freezer soon. :-D

IDConstitutionist said...

No, not mean company. It is VERY natural for even bottle baby BUCKS to turn aggressive (and yes, mean) during the rut. If not corrected, then the behavior continues thru the rest of the year.

In 16 yrs of raising goats, ALL my bucks are bottle raised so they know me as "Mom". When they are 2-3 weeks old they start "obedience" training....walking...lead by collar, then a leash, standing quietly and come when called. They are walked around the girls and only allowed to sniff. If the doe is receptive, the buck is put in a pen and the doe put in with him. Only then is he allowed to be a natural behaving buck. For my show fellas, I teach them to pose. They are handled constantly so their feet can be trimmed (every 4-6 weeks), bellies can be clipped to keep their breeding area clean, so they can get their worm meds and regular shots, copper bolus (hide in bananas) and other care that goes into proper goat keeping.

During rut, usually when they are yearlings going on 2 in the spring, is when my boys forget their manners cause they are not thinking. I get onto them and reteach behavior and that usually lasts their life time. If you don't correct them and let them know who is boss, you can get seriously hurt or even killed. A 200+ lbs goat can seriously hurt an adult.

'smatter, yooze don't like aniamals?

Nancy Patterson said...

I know this sounds odd but try having an animal chiropractor come out to the house and have him adjusted. Many times behavioral issues are from headaches due to subluxation. I know my billy loved to butt with my hand. I also know if someone was rough with him while doing this or grabbing the horns and shaking their head, they'd become subluxated. Subluxations cause nerve interference which causes pain, weakness, and loss of range of motion. To check to see if your goat is subluxated in the neck, take a treat and have the goat follow it to his shoulder. Do both sides. If he cannot turn his head to one side or the other, he is subluxated. If he can do both without trying to turn his whole body, he's fine. Just ornery.

thebrightonion said...

Hi Edna. How are things with hubbie and the boys then?

Voidhawk said...

Wow Today I go out in the world knowing lots about goats!...I stare at mine....

Kiri11 said...

Hook , line and sinker!

Tonya Powell said...

I'd love to know how they attached it to the ground

JaiGuru said...

Please consider a little rubber shim on the edges so the goats don't cut themselves.

Catherine said...

This was so fun to watch. What great exercise and games to play. As for the Billy being tied up, he is just fine. His tether is more than long enough. All Billy's I have ever known are mischievous and get in to more trouble. They were tied most of the time too.

jmw_123 said...

The metal is not sharp on the edges. It has a blunt edge or anyone handling it would be getting cut in the stores.

Dirtfarmer said...

The buck's tether looks long enough for him to get up there, but if he went off the far side his line might not be long enough for him to safely reach the ground on the other side. That occurs to me due to what I saw happen to a tethered cat once. Fortunately, someone saw it and saved it from choking to death. Perhaps he is not going for it because he realizes the tether doesn't allow him freedom of movement.

Perhaps you shouldn't hang out on public comment boards, what with your sensitive nature and propensity to pain in the brain.

Robert Cass said...

..."wethers" if they're castrated

VirtualMark said...

This is great!

Krit said...

most of the time 'round here we know them as billies and nannys the girl

Boris Clark said...

I really doubt you're a vegan; so stop pretending to care.

Derek Williams said...

Wow, I didn't know goats could have fun.

Lison Rousseau said...

lolllllll Plus qu'adorable ! Les miens aussi l'auront cet balancoire a chevres ! ...lolll

gfed said...

Anyone know the material, temper, and gauge of the strip that was used? A friend of mine raises pygmy goats, and would love to build one of these toys for his little herd.

Ras Tinny said...

Goats just wanna have fun :-) Thanks for posting.

Linda Sedlak said...

Too cute! Thanks for posting this video.

He looks like he just wants to butt heads

Sweetie Neal said...

You like that word subluxated don't you? Chiropractors are not doctors! Neither are you. You're ridiculous!

anno said...

The big one with the horns is the coach, cannot do it himself, but still gives instructions on how to do it. LOL ...

haha

Jason said...

I love how the black and white one wobbles the sheet to push the brown goat off, then the two little goats jump on :)

Robert Jory said...

Gives playing with the cat a whole new meaning.

bullygrrl said...

I'm curious to how the vegetation survives on that island? :)

RaxyP said...

These goats look really well treated and it's great to see how much fun they are having! Goes to show that Goats are intelligent creatures capable of fun, creativity and living life way beyond just "survival mode". They are pack animals and I think it's so mean the tradition we have here in New Zealand where we tether one single goat to the front section of the property- they spend their lives alone with very restricted movement and little stimulation. Treating our animals like s**t is just a reflection of the state of our own minds and personal development/evolution.

Adrian Campanelli said...

How can I eat that flesh anymore!!!! They play like me or like any kid.
WTF!!!

Lara said...

Actually goat DOES taste very delicious. Ever had it? :)

MayanFox said...

I dub the brown one Kelly Slater.

Sophie Allan said...

"Mum' has very big balls!! ;-)

Sophie Allan said...

That's right, a buck is a male deer

Ray said...

looks like fun

Colleen Marie Griffen said...

haha, (edna) know what you mean, but better that she post her opinions in any form than not at all - some just don't have the time, or are extremely tired from work and the word perfect is not in our vocabulary..However I don't like that billy is tied up and that is not the right way to be training him (or handling his aggression) he needs the attention of a trainer (I would call a dog trainer since I've never heard of a goat trainer) and they may be able to give you some helpful tips. (even just one session would be beneficial) There are more humane way to have him confined than to be tied up - and there are people that will help you build a fence (there are free fence panels posted on craigs list free stuff quite often. Just gotta put the need out there.

Colleen Marie Griffen said...

smart nancy, I agree, would go to a chiro before any other kind of doctor - who needs vax and meds - no thanks - wouldn't mess up my animals with that junk either.

saucetin said...

Unfamiliar with the idiom of Mark E. Smith, from the Fall? Just like that. A poet laureate. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpWVk3h2SA8 #Wow

saucetin said...

Not 'Billies', then?

Pierre said...

If they are japanese or chinese, your question is invalid.

lawai`a said...

Playing King of the mountain....

Saad said...

We just castrate the billys!!! Docile as a hen after that ha ha.

Heroin Addict said...

I sold my billy goat for heroin. I'm pretty sure he's an actor now

Che said...

so cool.... these animals are learning about physics and the dynamics of the metal when weight is applied... with a focus to get all three on! When we kill animals to eat we need to give the process the proper respect....

Diane Stanley said...

Why was it removed? :(

JMO5177 said...

don't bother to video unless they all can join in...cruel

tastefullyoffensive.com said...

It's back! Thanks for the heads up.

Fiercecontinent said...

man if one single American teenager visited that island...

eta said...

first of all she is Chinese, sounds like Cantonese. Secondly, the rabbits and vegetation looks great, luckily they are not westerners!!

buns said...

set to private?? :(
