Some of you may know my one goat (a buck) has recently developed an attitude I am pleased to say one day of being spritzed with cider vinegar has really seemed to help. If I say NO loudly, he keeps his distance. But I admit until, I know he has really changed I don't turn my back on him.

While having his attitude issue he literally destroyed his pen. I have not had time to fix it and since he has stayed in a 30 foot area, and happily munching on poison ivy, I have let him run loose. Yes, this may be a mistake and I plan to get fence repaired tomorrow afternoon.

This evening I was finishing off all the animals,. making sure they had water and giving them their evening snack. I had one goat food bag that was just about empty so I just took the bag with me. My hands were full and I was still keeping a good eye on Mr. Attitude so I dropped the bag on the ground.

As I was feeding everyone else, Mr. Attitude had to check out the bag. To make sure he had any crumbs he tipped the bag up and it went totally over his head and down to his shoulders. He shook his head and could not get it off. As a matter of fact, it was on more secure. So he started running around the back yard.

Yes, I was laughing. And yes, I just let him run. He finally realized he could not see and came to a complete standstill. I went over and cautiously took the bag off.

What a look he had on his face!

So what have your animals done that made you laugh?

    @Monek Marie I had a Boer buck called Ulysses, nice enough boy, usually amendable enough. One day I was fixing the fence in one of the goat paddocks, he was hanging around, being inquisitive. I always kept an eye on him,”just in case”. I must have been so engrossed in what I was doing, I forgot. I felt a warm wet patch on my shirt, it wasn’t that hot. I swivelled around and Ulysses was peeing on his beard and I copped the rest. I didn’t laugh at the time, I yelled at him and shooed him away. I finished what I was doing and got out of there quick smart. I do laugh now though.

    We had a chicken one time that somehow got her head through a paper bowl! She had a puzzled look on her face as she strutted around the yard with her interesting collar!

    My daughter had a song playing that involved the lyrics "breaking dishes". Well, wouldn't you know it, the little dog picked up her dish and broke it on the floor right on cue! I wish I had taken notes of all her adventures.

    We went out to visit our son in Colorado a few years back and met his new dog. That afternoon, we all packed into the car and took a ride to a nearby lake where we decided to hike the short circumference. Mind you, we aren't young, but kept up a steady pace with our son and his wife. Halfway around the lake we noticed that the dog was not at our feet. A quick glance back located the furry friend about 10 feet back just plopped onto the path with all four limbs splayed out as if on ice. None of us had ever bested a canine companion on a quarter mile hike, much less one that elicited hearty laughter at the sight of one with a Valley Girl attitude - "I've had enough walking, I'm done and I'm not moving." He continued plopping down about every 200 feet all the way back to the car. He wasn't hurt or hot, just thought that walking was overrated.

    I love the way animals can make us laugh. We had a boxer who would get gassy and when he farted he scared himself. After the first really loud one the next ones he would stand up and look under his butt where he had been seated as if we had put something there to make the noise.

    We had a dog named Lars that had the worst gas. He could literally clear a room.

    One night he was sleeping and cut a huge one. It woke him up and he looked at my Dad like he had done the nasty deed. He gave Dad a dirty look, stuck his nose in ther air and left the room. (my Dad was insulted)

    One of my dogs will crop dust people and then run away because it smells so bad (it's only funny as long as its not you).
