Marthajones feels poorly

Last night's great escape seems to have upset Marthajones. I found her huddled up in a corner this morning while her buddies ate. I nagged coaxed her til she agreed to stand up and wander around a bit -- just to get away from me probably. A bite of hay here, a lick of minerals there, but her spark was missing. She turned her nose up at bicarbonate. Rosetyler and Donnanoble, the middle of the pack does, were taking turns whacking her for no particular reason. I don't know what the problem is. She stood at the door to the yard for a long while, but it's too muddy to let her out yet.  Maybe she's longing for spring like the rest of us. Can a goat get depressed overnight?


  1. Very strange...I hope she's doing better!

  2. I get depressed but usually because I'm being whacked for no reason by Ella. Maybe she has S.A.D.S. Can goats have that?

    1. Once again Marigold, I think you're on to something. I think it's the whacking. Marthajones went from being deputy mayor to bootscrapper overnight. I really would like to know what went on at that after-hours party. Maybe a barncam is in order....
