Cal the buck has discovered a weak spot on the side of a bldg where he digs his horns into. Angry
Bob fixed it but 5 minutes later he was at it again.
I started yelling at Cal. "AHH AHH AHH!!! Where's the hot shot!?"
Not where I usually put it.
Dep comes down & starts sparring with Cal so that ended it at least for now.

That's such an awesome thing that Dep did.  I do hope you get him to stop that, they can destroy a building pretty darn quick.  Something I have done with our Mercy, who constantly wants to pound on the fences...I put a hotwire on Princes side, which stopped him from doing it but not Mercy.  I am now using a swimming pool filled with water, 5 gallon buckets filled with water, water balloons tied on the fences if need be...Goats hate water..what an easy, humane way to break bad habits.  Give it a try.  Wink

Water balloons sounds great!
There's lectric fence somewhere around here that we've never used but I think it's real low voltage.
Cal only does this at grain time. Watch him make me out to be a liar. Roll Eyes

Use the used car tires on the fences, and gates.  They work!!
