Even when you see it coming it isn't easy. We lost Miss Jill this week. Earlier in the week Hubby and I discussed that Jill wasn't doing well and the colder weather was really effecting her. Friday morning Hubby and I were watching her eat breakfast, and decided that we would pull her out and see about a heat lamp and privacy to see if maybe it would make her feel a little better, but we both knew what was coming. Then just a couple hours later she was gone. My miracle goat... was now gone.
We were told she wouldn't make it through the night years back. Her baby was stuck sideways and nearly killed her when the vet was trying to remove it and save her. She survived and gave us years more of loving. But by our choice no more babies to risk her.
One of her first photos... Her Mom, Lillie - and twins Jack and Jill.
She was such a proud little one that first day she learned to jump on the huts and then jump off... We sat and watched her do it a hundred times before she was totally worn out and fell asleep next to her Mom.
She gave us some beautiful babies - And again lots of love.
We are going to miss her terribly - There are so many holes in our hearts lately with the loss of some of our older fur children.
Jill will be another BIG hole. But we are blessed to have these sweet kids in our lives and sadly with the age of so many of our first animals this is part of life. Just hard to deal with at this time ....
We will miss you Jill - You were a true Blessing to us.
