    My boss just lost her best fainter buck Doc holiday. This was a guy that had the fainten gen in him so bad he would faint going into his stall comen out of his stall, when he went to go and get a drink of water, when he had to get in the trailer, comen out of the trailer, and anything that was a loud noise. He could handle a loud noises. We used to kid around and talk about how would this goat mate cause he would faint so much. We have a some of his kids and hopefully going to be haven a few more. His son Ce Ce is a lot like him but dose nto faint as much. He was breed with a ew of our does that are about to give birth. Doc Holiday will be missed cause he was a lovable goat, love being around people and given kisses.

    My boss rented out a petting zoo to a lcal green house for 3 weeks. The first guy came back sick was Ben another one of her retired fianters. He had runney nose and we thought we had taken care of that until one morning we found him dead. Doc was fine one day and went down in a matter of a few hours just like the others. Sparkles was very young and we had a lot of trouble keeping weight on her. We have one more sick that is isolated (sp) from everyone. I hate to do this but the head count is 2 alphcas, 2 baby cows, 2 adult goats, 1 still born baby, 1 baby goat, 2 horse, and one mini horse.

    Doc and Sparkles hit me hard cuase I loved both of these guys with all my heart. Doc was a characte that woudl always make you laugh and sparkles was my baby. I may not hae owned Sparkles but she was mine all mine. Sometime I still think I hear her mommy cry on the farm.

    I am soooo sorry. Did they get into something? Did you have a necropsy done on one to see what is / was causing all of this? I am soooo glad that Pancake is ok!!
