14. Your ranch bell reminded me - when I first bought my farm I bought a farm bell

And also a herd of goats to help clear the underbrush on this long neglected property. The guys helping to set up the farm for horses got in the habit of ringing the bell when they arrived and the goats quickly learned that the bell meant people and possible treats.

Sometimes we'd get visitors that would ring the bell, expecting to alert us or our workers that someone was here - not nly would people arrive, if any were here, but they would end up with a herd of goats expecting something for their trouble in responding to the bell. It made it hard for those visitors to leave without letting the goats out the front gate.
