I've just been thinking a lot about how much I miss having my goats.
I no longer have a reason to get out of bed in the morning at the moment and it's quite depressing :( How does anyone cope not having them after they have had them before? They weren't my whole life but they were a big part of it and I am so so lost without them.
I need goats in my life again. D:

I miss and worry about my Peggy Sue more than my human kids when I'm traveling. I know that sounds awful, but the two human kids I leave behind can call me on the phone and tell me they are being properly taken care of (I keep my little larvae with me since she's still on the breast) whereas my baby Poozer is lacking in verbal skills and can't communicate or understand where I've gone or if I'm coming back.

It's not like I Skype with my goat, though. I mean, not excessively. Certainly never more than once or twice a day. :eek:

If you want you can Skype Peggy Sue and the others to get a goatie fix. She would be happy to chat with you. :)

I have always wondered what "regular" people do with their spare time! I get up at 4:30 am, feed the goats (23) and milk (5) (right now- sometimes up to 10), get ready and work
10 hours, come home, feed and milk again, check everyone, check fencing, breed or look for heat, etc. feed the chickens, peeps, and dogs. Then go in and eat supper (10:30 pm!) shower and jump into bed. Oh, plus spend some time with dh, he isn't into goats so I have find time for him. (He goes to bed around 9 pm). Finally, around midnight or so, I go to bed. So, if I had no goats, what would I do with my evenings? :confused: I probably would miss the goats and the constant activity- I just can't see sitting in front of the tv all eve! :p

Well, she has to get the boy child to use his fingers to make Skype happen, but she does grumble and blat at me when she sees me and hears my voice. I've found that if I Skype with her while I'm gone she's a lot less angry and pouty when I get home. :p

Alyssa, since when did you not have goats? I knew that one passed (so sorry :( ) but where did the other little guy go?

I don't know what I would do with no goats either!

She's my fat greedy little Poozer Choozer! And I will totally deny it if you tell anyone I said that. ;)

Thanks Scottyhorse. :hug:
We have our suspicions and theories but we'll never know for sure. Decided to hold off on the idea of goats until we have more land and such. Though I secretly hope someone needs me to foster an orphan or something so I have a baby to take care of for a bit :)

I'm going to tell the Poozer Choozer herself ;)

So sorry for your loss! I lost a great doe this May- the vet never did figure out why. I think it was pneumonia and I had a bad
bottle of antibiotics. (that is another story)
No matter how many, a loss hits hard and with pets, extra hard!

How I do it? I'm not sure- but I love being busy! I am building a new goat friendly barn soon. Then the chore time should be cut
in half! (and sell a couple more to get down to a more manageable size!)
