Farewell

8 Jan

Farewells are never fun.  Unfortunately, with my old herd, there’s plenty of good-byes.  Yesterday afternoon, the vet came to check my old goats, and we said good-bye to Betty Lou.  Betty has been declining and losing weight and it was time.

She was one of two girls I kept that year.  She and Pebbles were about like twins.

She was my herd queen, Minnie Pearl’s daughter.  She gave me my bratty Helen.

Dear Betty Lou.

I will miss you.  You are the last of the goats born in 2007
