Farewell, Litha

15 Jun

Litha managed to do well over the winter. She kept her weight up and honestly did quite well.

But this summer, her arthritis has steadily worsened, and she’s dropped a large amount of weight in the heat the last couple of weeks.  She just looked tired all the time.

She gave me the only set of quads born on the farm.

She was a twin to my sweet Stormy.  They were the set of girls that made me decide I could keep both of them instead of my policy of only keeping one twin.  In short, those two are the ones who really paved my path of being addicted to goats.

The only kid of hers that I kept was Reva.  It was time to say farewell to my beautiful, classy lady.

I will miss my girl.
