Downed Fence

We have had a fence that was down at the end of the corral and have put off fixing it because the goats hadn't realized yet that it was down.  That is until yesterday when I looked out and saw that Lola discovered the spot and that she could get out.   Her mother was baaing and baaing, because although she could get out, she couldn't figure out how to get back in.  The kids ran out and put her back in the corral only to look out a little bit later and see her out again.  All the goats went back into the barn at this point and we decided to fix it after dinner. 

When we went down to look at the fence the goats came out with us, they are sort of like dogs and follow us around.  As we stood surveying the fence, Lola came scampering down and jumped up on the fence post where she was getting out and turned around as if to say, "This is how you get out!"  We shooed her down and she ran around for a few moments and then jumped back up there again and did the same thing as if we didn't understand her the first time.  She seemed so proud of herself.  We burst her bubble by fixing the fence.  She looked at it for a while, realized that she wasn't getting out any more and went back to her goat business.
