Ok all you goat experts. I've got a problem child goat, and she's beginning to piss me off. Tweak has always been the worst one of my four goats about being flighty and untouchable. She didn't stop shaking for three days after I got them, and she still won't let you touch her, handling her is a hazard and a hassle (plus she screams like you're killing her, always good for the neighbors to hear). We've tried bribing her with treats (won't eat them), regular food (will eat from your hand at feeding time, but that's as far as she'll let interaction go), sitting out there and talking to them and being super quiet and slow and gentle around them(helped with the other goats, but not her). And she goes nuts trying to get away from you when you go out to feed or clean up to the point of knocking over the other goats. She wasn't named Tweak for nothing Oh, and she beats the crap out of the other three -- which is making Nutmeg (the quiet, shy one) a nervous wreck. She beats the crap out of them at feeding time (doesn't matter than they're fed their chow seperately, as soon as Tweak sees the food coming she starts to rough up her half sisters), when they go in for the night, just for the hell of it throughout the day. She's even rotten with my dogs (the Pit Bull is terrified of her) -- our young dog has been rolled by her. Bitch! The only dog she won't challenge anymore is Violet, my female Border (V can bring the bitch right back at her). So as of now she's worthless as a training tool for any of the BCs. Now she's gotten into a new gig: every morning no later that 5 (but sometimes sooner) she starts yelling for breakfast. And then again at noon for lunch, and then again at 2:30 for dinner -- and hell, sometimes if she thinks she needs some more food and you step outside she starts up. Tweak is one loudmouthed broad too. All the other goats may bleat gently and politely, but this beoytch bellows (and of course, I'm sure the neighbors appreciate me for this -- you can hear her a block away). No, I'm not going to give in to feed on demand (they have free choice hay and forage all day anyway; she wants goat chow -- uhm, no). This is one obnoxious goat, and I'm at my wit's end with her (of course, she's the biggest and best looking of the lot as well and her mother was the best milker of my kids' moms) -- got any suggestions? Anyone want a bad, bitchy goat as a project? Mr. J is wondering what she'd dress out at as I type. Don't say I wasn't honest about her. My only consolation with her right now is 1) she is big for a pygmy and preeettty, so she might have nice kids that I can bottle raise; 2)as I tell her every time she's up to her crotchety, loud, bitchy self "Tweak, when you die, you will go to Goat Hell, and I will not feel sorry for you."
