Now that Christmas is over we can reflect on the past year. I lost Jax this year at 13yrs old.(that's him in the picture) he was such an easy going happy little soul. I'll never forget him, but all in all a pretty good year. Happy New Year to all
It is sad to lose a long time friend. I especially miss the routine things you say to that particular animal, and find at times, I start to say the phrase, and then quickly realize there will be no response Each one holds a special spot, but some more than others...those are the ones that will always be remembered.. :hug:
It's so true if you really think of the everyday routine. I wake the goats up by 6:00 everyday, and Jax was for the past 13 years the first I called for and the first that couldn't wait to see me. We spend so much time with them, when we suffer a loss it throws our entire routine out of order.some people say it was a goat.... He was more than just a goat to me. It has gotten much easier with time and look forward to raising more happy goats like him.
Jax and Jasper, the first two goats I brought home 14 years ago at two weeks old... I'm blessed to still have Jasper, Happy New Year goat people I'm excited for this year and having more kids around the barn.
I hate it too when people say, it is just a goat, obviously they don't have or didn't spend time with them to find out, just how they are good for us and mend stress in our lives, when we are around them.
I love his pics and see why he was so special to you. :thumb:
I agree. People don't understand the love a goat can give you. They are so happy to see you every day. They don't get mad at you. They are a pleasure to have and so much fun to own. My guys take walks with me in the woods. My snowboots always heads the way
