I don't understand. It looks dry at your place. Where's the mud? We have mud.
I love these pics! I have never seen anything so sweet!
Oh! So, so sweet.BTW, had a conversation with friend and clicker giant, Karen Pryor, who said she'd heard from a trainer who said that goats can't be clicker trained(!) We had quite the conversation about goat-iness. How a bit of wilted parsley will cause a goat to walk away from the trainer, fuming. How they are creative learners -how they learn very fast and then add something to the lesson... Training goats is not for the rigid!
Great pictures! It really looks like spring is fully under way.
We don't believe in Mud, Marigold. At least not showing it in public.Terry,I can't believe Karen didn't think you could clicker train a goat! Doesn't she see youtube? You can clicker train anything. While they are a bit different than a dog (as in trying to knock you down for the treat) they respond well. I am even training my doelings to walk better on the lead with the clicker and treats. One is walking on her back legs, jumping on and off things, jumping a hurdle (kind of)and we are working on heeling. I did see a Nubian that was taught to sit but goats don't really work that way so I won't be doing that. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.Thank you Ruta, Michaele, and Teresa. They are smaller in person...and oh so sweet.
I didn't word my post well! Karen DOES believe that you can clicker train goats. She's helped me with mine! What she couldn't believe was that another trainer - one who supposedly is a professional and teaches clicker theory - thought it was impossible! I started heeling work with my boys last fall, but it became kind of hard to teach with 3 feet of snow on the ground :) I should get back to it this spring... Have you taught a "don't eat the roses!" yet?
Terry, That sounds more like it:) I wish Karen Pryor was my friend....although I do have a friend that is a close second to Karen as far as clicker training goes.
