Goat Love

Yesterday was a day full of mixed blessings. I will not be sharing how everything proceeded, but I am so very happy to tell you that I was able to find our sweet Blanco and Jeff. When I drove to pick-up destination I was greeted by two happy goats. They immediately gave me more nudges and kisses than any one person deserves. They followed me into the trailer and when safely home I let them graze in our yard for a bit. I then led them to pasture where they were rejoined with all the donkeys. You should have seen the donkeys run to them. The baby donkeys were especially thrilled to see their friends. At one point, Annie, one of our babies just laid down next to Blanco and rested her head on him. I wish I had my camera as it would have made a perfect photo. Our hearts are not quite as heavy now. Mainly, we are glad our little old men are home and can enjoy the rest of their life- “living the life” in their pasture with their friends. It was certainly a crying day for me and I almost feel sorry for all the people that had to witness me crying non-stop…

Spot was unable to return home with us as he was already dead so we are missing him so much. He was our special goat who thought he was a human! He always wanted to ride in our vehicles. He was the most generous with his love and he loved his treats! We will miss him terribly. He was no different than having that cute dog that follows you around. He wanted to be with us and just go everywhere we went. He really was special little goat. He had a a face that anyone could love…

    I am so happy you found two of your babies. I know how glad you must be. I thought of you when I was at the livestock impound today. They have a female brown and white boer goat and three of the cutest donkeys. The baby is a snow white little jenny and absolutely adorable. I wish I had room for them. We are bidding on a 2 year old palomino gelding that seems to be a very sweet guy. I may break him for my own personal horse.
