    This afternoon the weather was warm and sunny. So i thought i would take a few girl out to graze. We have some waist high grass behind the house. I tied Dixie, and let little bit run free. She always sticks with her cousin. I was getting hay for the babies and goats that were in the pens still. Came around the house about five minutes after i put little bit and dixie out. Little bit was laying in a rumpled heap at the bottem of the hill. I started screaming and ran to her but it was too late. The best we can figure is she mis stepped off the edge and the weight of her belly (she was due in a few days) threw her off balence. There are slide makrs on the hill where she feel. We think she fell on her head and broke her neck. I feel absolutly horrible that i wasnt there. She didnt cry out and neither did dixie. Its just one of those freak accidents.
    Little Bit will be terribly missed. She was the only daughter i have from my all time favorite doe Cally. ... juru-1.jpg
    little bit is the doe in the foreground, she has always been a trouble maker, climbing on the roof of the house, getting into everything she could.
    rest in peace little bit.

    Oh my I am so sorry. I lost a preggy doe in much the same way, atleast you know she didn't suffer, the doe I lost had to have suffered, which made it so much harder :tears:

    What a terrible accident-I'm so sorry that this happened to you and your girl.
    I looked at the picture and thought what a beautiful place full of happy goats. So fine for them. And it still is- this was just a awful accident.
    And of course you're being there would not have stopped it from happening- If you had been standing a couple of feet from her, it would have happened - please don't feel bad- you were giving them a wonderful opportunity for a good life.
