Every evening when dusk begins to settle in I go outside to feed the animals and tuck them in for the night. Yesterday when I went outside all the animals seemed to go bonkers. As I opened the door I could hear the goats screaming.
The guineas and chickens were lined up along the electric netting like they were seated to watch a horse race.
The sheep were sprinting from one end of the fence twenty to thirty yards to their barn and back again. They did this at least three or four times, I thought that maybe they had lost their minds.
Sara started barking and the chickens and guineas (mostly the guineas) were creating such a racket that I had to yell to the Commander to be heard.
Screaming goats, cackling guineas, clucking chickens, barking dogs, and rampaging sheep, I never would have imagined that my back yard would ever be like this.
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
