8 Aug

The last of my original Saanen girls, Minnie Pearl, joined her sisters today.

Minnie Pearl Saanen Feb 2004 – 8 Aug 2017

I miss you all.

Minnie, Millie, Meg, Maddie, Cutie

I also lost Kizzy today.  She was a beautiful Valentine’s Day baby, born when it was -6*F (-21.1*C).

She is the one who gave me all the beautiful spots.

Three Generations: Blaze, Gidget, and Kizzy

I miss you all.  Every day.

    Awww so sad. They are happily eating grass and jumping over things at Rainbow Bridge.

      I’d guess they’re probably causing a bit of trouble too. 😉

    So sorry to hear that, Teresa. What a lovely tribute of pictures. Sending you some cyber hugs for the loss of your beautiful kids. ❤

    The end of an era. What a sad day….and two losses in one day. That makes my heart ache. Then I think about all the joy that the original girls have brought you over the years, and the many kids that have made us all squeal with delight at their sweet pictures, and the way that the original team of goats took you down such a wonderful road. I am thankful that they were yours, and that you have shared them with the world.

      Thank you. I was very blessed with those girls. They really did start something. LOL

    I am crying. I am so sorry. Minnie is with Millie and I’d like to think Pricilla and Abby too

    • Teresa August 8, 2017 at 6:10 pm #

      Yes. They were all such special goats. Pricilla is one of the first goats we met online.

        Priscilla is the first goat I folllowed. She brought me to Millie, Minnie and Isobelle. Thanks you for sharing your sweet goats.

        It still amazes me how many blogging goats there were at one time.

    • Teresa August 8, 2017 at 7:30 pm #

      I’d like to think they did. They are sweet.

    Goats are so amazing. One day, I will have some, and then I will fully understand. Sorry you lost those two.

    • Teresa August 8, 2017 at 7:30 pm #

      Thank you. They had good, long lives. Not that it makes it any easier.

    Aww, Teresa, I’m so very sorry! I loved those sweet girls. I was expecting Minnie Pearl to go, but Kizzy’s death came as a surprise. My heart is breaking for you.

    • Teresa August 9, 2017 at 1:57 pm #

      I called the vet to come for Minnie and see what his opinion was on Kizzy and Helen. We both agreed it was best for Kizzy too. Helen is still going strong despite only using three legs to walk on.

    A time to sow and a time to reap, a time to mourn and a time to dance. May you soon find a time to dance.

    So so sorry to see this Teresa. It is like losing family, and it is so painful. I hope better things are ahead.
