    It is with incredible saddness and a broken heart that I must tell you of the loss of my loving babies

    This has been the worst night of my life. The flames were just to much for me to get in....

    RIP my babies. You can't imagine how much love and happiness you gave me. those sweet little calls when you heard me talking, the playful runnig in the warm sun. The love you gave me even after those nasty shots....

    Bell - due with possible trips March 6th
    Holly - oh my sweet holly - got her as a Christmas gift...only a couple months old...she was my lover.....had to be with me...god she was my best friend...
    Dottie - sweet, gentle, loving dottie...always there for me even after a bad day at work...I will miss you laying you head on me and trying to eat my fingers..
    Mariposa - she was so shy, but really trying...just had her first doe Feb 7th. prefect little baby....
    and my smallest baby - MAYA - oh maya, watching you grow so fast and strong. she was such a little pisser...she would push on my finger....like she was so bad.....I love you...

    You will always have a special place in my heart. The love in your eyes, those sweet little bleets when you heard my voice...the love that you all gave me is more that I deserve...to just play with you all one more time...to sit in the barn and let you crawl all over me...chew my hair and try to drink my coffee....

    How does one move on after this...You all have been so wonderful you can't possibly know. I have other who understand the love that others think are crazy.....you all are like my goatie family...please say prayers for my babies and mommies....God help me....

    I am sooooooo very, very sorry :hug: ......this is something I worry about all the time, even though I take every step to make sure the barn is safe.....it can still happen. My heart goes out to you and please know there are many lifting you in prayers :pray: this morning and will days to come. Allow yourself as much time as needed to grieve and process what has happen.....it takes time. I still have a hard time grasping that my little guy that I loss in early Dec is really gone, it is still like a bad dream that I wish I could wake from and I only loss one......I can only imagine your loss.
    Hang in there and know you have a place to come and talk about it, where others understand.

    I'm so very sorry Jen...what a terrible tragedy. :( Sending lots of :grouphug: :hug: your way. What a nightmare...I can't even imagine how you must be feeling right now. I'd be a walking zombie if that happened. :(

    If you need anything let me know...I'm on the otherside of the US but I'll still do whatever I can to help. If you decide to replace your stock....I am good at finding cheap transport!

    I'm so sorry you lost your herd. I am terrified of fire, it is so relentless. In time your heart will heal and I hope you will feel like starting again. There aren't any words to make this better for you, but I am so sorry.
