Today I thought I needed to do a bit of a little tribute to two - Chloe and Peso... Sadly we lost of them over the holiday season. The day before Christmas Chloe passed away in her sleep. We had been watching her closely and knew it was coming... but still hit us as the day before she was trotting and still active for the most part.
She will be missed! But she had a good long life here - well as far as a goat life. They just don't live long enough for me.
Now Peso was not expected .. One afternoon he was just laying on his patio hut looking around. Not eating much but not acting sick. Next morning he was gone, rolled up sleeping and then gone. I don't know which is worse ... knowing and watching day after day that it is coming, or something quick. Guess it depends on the animal and if they are suffering right? Well neither of them suffered at all. Other than Chloe loosing her Queen Bee in charge status a year or so ago to one of the other ladies. She hated giving up her title and control of all the ladies.
Peso though.. that smile and those teeth grinning at me - man I am going to really miss him. And his high pitch girlie sounding call.
His little bachelor pad is so empty now - so sad. We decided that it is time to do some moving around and bring one of the other guys to live in the bachelor pad. Just need some time to get around it all in my head and have some time to say goodbye to Peso.
Too say goodbye to Peso and Chloe. Sigh ~ I've been saying it was coming so many of our family has gotten old. I'm going to try and not focus on that and just love hug and pet on them all as much as I can.
The hardest part of the "busines" is that after time they get old and we loose them. I so wish they would live longer.. that they all would live longer.
We will always have a special part of our heart for you Peso and Chloe!
