More Goats

Some of the baby goats are big enough now to be jumping up on the water tank in their field.  We have had trouble in the past with them falling in and drowning.  We have stacked cinder blocks in the bottom thinking that if they fell in they could get a foot hold and jump out but that didn't work either.  I have seen some that fall in and immediately fight to get out and make it.   I've seen others fall in and just go limp.  
 We tried this with the pallets last year and it seemed to work.  The problem is we can only do this in the field they are currently in.  When we start letting them out to the rest of the farm we can't block off the top of all the tanks because the cattle will rub on the pallets and break something.
 Right now they are using it as a play ground.
 Have you seen anything so adorable?
Maybe we can teach Bumble to rescue the little ones if they fall in.
Kid count - 44 maybe.
