A sad day

It is always a sad day when you loose one of your animals.  Flower was 2 year old pygmy that was born on our farm.  She was one of the triplets to be the first animals to be born on our farm.  The only one of that bunch that we kept.  She also was mother to Louise.  Flower passed away Thursday last week.   I went out in the morning and let all 3 goats out to roam and eat and 3 hours later she was dead when I went back out.  No visible signs and I don't know what happened.  It did upset me.  Though I have gotten much better with the loss of animals around here.

I did love Flower she was such a sweet friendly goat and a great Mama.  Louise is sad and cries for her Mama alot but she will adjust.  I just wish I knew what happened.  So good bye Flower thanks for what you added to our family and farm.


  1. Oh, how sad. Don't worry about being upset- I think there is something wrong with the people who aren't sad about the loss of an animal. Hugs to you.

  2. I'm so sorry. Losing a pet is like losing a member of the family. (((hugs)))

  3. Awww I am so sorry! It is so awful to lose them, especially when you don't know what happened. I have lost goats to respiratory infection, bloat and worms, but we can always tell what it was. I wish I knew more so I could help you figure out what happened, but sometimes you just never know. Hugs!

  4. Oh no!!! I am so very sorry. That is just so very sad. I cant imagine that ever get any easier.
