First Geese, Now Goats...

"Ghosts? I Thought You Said *Goats*!"

Wanna know what a baby goat sounds like when it's hungry at 3 AM?

OK, go find a dog's squeaky toy. Get one that's REALLY annoying.

Hook up the squeaky toy to a microphone, and pipe it through an amplifier. Set the speaker output right outside your bedroom window.

Stomp on that squeaky toy at random intervals. Double the squeak rate whenever the neighbor is visible to the goat, and it thinks the bottle of milk is forthcoming.

Repeat, ad nauseum et ad aeternam, all weekend long.

I managed to have a civil conversation with the neighbor this morning before work. He swears the daughter will have the goat relocated to the FFA barn ASAP.

On the plus side, I haven't heard their goose squonk in a while. Perhaps they ate him already...
