One of our lady goats went to the big pasture in the Sky last night. She's been winding down for a couple of days now, and last night was all she could take. Surrounded by here kids (not quite weaned, but taking a bottle well) and my kids. Will miss old Frosty. She was a great goat, made great babies and was a favorite of several of my kids. We've explained and discussed the circle of life, but for some of my kids it's still pretty hard to see the cycle at this stage. It still touches me just how gentle a soul some of my children have.
I hope they can keep a soul that grieves easily as long as they live.
