Today I got in over my head because I forgot I had MS. We have 5 goats. Two are young, Jack and Jill, they will be one in July. The photo of Jack is from when he was just a baby. Lately, he keeps head butting me. It's how goats establish dominance. Well, I won't be dominated by a goat! No way Jack.
When I went into the pen earlier he butted me in the back of the leg. Before I thought, I bent over and grabbed his two legs on the other side and wrestled him to the ground. Then while holding his front legs I put my knee into his neck to pin him down. He starts screaming (not from pain but pride) and I need to keep him pinned until he stops flailing. At which time, I have established dominance. But, I have MS and while he is screaming, my muscles start screaming too. I had to call for rescue by hubby because I was sure not gonna let Jack up while he was still flailing. Once hubby rescued me, I asked him "why didn't you remind me I had MS"? 😜
