    A year ago today I lost one of my favorite goats, Xcell. She taught me no amount of love, determination, blood, sweat and tears can save some. It was one of the hardest lessons to learn... and I still don't want to believe it.

    She lives on through her son, daughter and grandchildren. Some of them have the same little quirks she did. It's neat to see.

    The one thing I really miss about her is the way she would announce every kidding on the farm and would want to greet each kid, maybe even try to steal it. lol And yet for all the yelling she would do at every elses kidding she hated to let you know when she was kidding. She's the only doe who's kidding I missed, and I know she's proud of it. :p She was a bit crazy, but that's what I loved about her.

    Rest in peace my girl, I know your up there right now with SunnyD who's life was way too short. But maybe you needed a friend to keep you company up there. :cry:

    Looks like she really meant a lot to you. What a beautiful girl...at least you have a part of her through her kids and grandkids. That certainly makes things easier. Big HUG!!!

    Yet again, Another year has gone by. Xcell has more grand children to be proud of and I cherish every one of them. I almost lost three of them to poisoning this last weekend and I think I can finally breath again now that they have started to eat hay. They are still not out of the woods, but better.

    I've been so upset with Xcell's anniversary coming up and all the girls sick!

    :hug: I just love her story. I can see why you miss her. I love that she made sure not to tell you when she was kidding but snitched on everyone else. What a clown. Are her kin anything like her?

    Her son is just like her except that he is a lot more friendly since he was socialized as a kid. But no one snitches on kiddings like she did. You couldn't miss a kidding here when she was around, except hers!! I wish another would tell on everyone like she did, although it sometimes was a bit annoying because you would have more than 1 goat screaming it's head off. :slapfloor:

    Sorry to hear your beautiful Xcell passed last year. What a lovely tribute, and what a character she was. Glad your sick girls are pulling through!

    :grouphug: I am so sorry. I can see she meant so much to you. It can be so hard to loose the ones we love so much.
