Farewells

9 May

It’s never easy to say good-bye, and yesterday we said good-bye to two girls–Maggie and Harley.  I’ve been babying them both for a year, and it just was getting too much.  I was afraid they didn’t have much quality left in their lives, and it was just time.

Maggie and her twin brother are the original kids in my tail count in my sidebar.  She was nearly identical in looks to her mother, Scarlet.  She helped her mom take care of her little brother and sister (Casey and Cookie) when they were kids.  She was always a devoted mother, which was truly the case when she saved her daughter, Margarita, from a coyote attack.

Harley was one of Stormy’s triplets  She was always a bit more shy than her sister, but Harley was also the clown of the group.  She might have injured her back, but she was always there to play with the kids or just befriend someone who needed it.

Haley, Harley, and Stormy

I will miss them both.

    Tough decisions. Hopefully you can see some of them in their family trees.

      Sadly, I don’t have any from Harley, but Maggie’s girl, Margarita, will be having oopsie babies soon.

    I’m sad that it was time, but I admire you for recognizing when it’s time, and keeping their best interests at heart no matter how difficult it is. They were both beautiful girls – I love those dark red-brown coated goats. Sending big hugs from the frozen north!

    I’m so sorry! I do understand, though. We’ve experienced the need to have to go that route, as well. It never gets any easier, does it. I know you will miss them both. You are Good caretaker!
