It’s not always easy…

We thought kidding season was starting a little early with Zooey when she went into labor in yesterday morning.   It didn’t work out that way and we just finished burying her in the back pasture where she loved to graze.   We lost her three kids too.  She was a sweet goat, a good milker and an easy keeper.  She was born here at Edgwick Farm and lived her entire life here.  Zooey knew her name and Talitha knew Zooey’s baaa.

As Angela Miller from Consider Bardwell once told us, “Where there is livestock, there is deadstock.”  That is one reality of kidding season and farming in general.    But that doesn’t make your heart hurt any less.

    I can only imagine how tough it must be to loose one of your girls. It’s something I know is bound to happen to us too one day, but I think no amount of mental preparation will prepare us for.

    Our thoughts are with you and your beautiful furry friend.
