    You know, no matter how many times I see babies leave for new homes, I still get teary eyed when they leave.
    Peaches, Sweetie and Uno will have a wonderful home together with a lady who used to raise show pygmies, she had to sell off her herd years ago and left herself with 2 does, one aged and one young, her fear was that the old gal would pass and leave the young one lonely so she figures on having a little pet herd now that her time has been freed up to enjoy them.

    I am so going to miss those sweet little faces looking up at me at 4:30 in the morning wanting their breakfast...and hearing them greet me after work. Watching them bounce all through the field and having them snooze on my lap...It's all worth it though when I know that my attention and love are the things that make them thrive and grow to be the wonderful little pets they are :love: And knowing that I chose the right home for them too.

    I know how you feel.... I have a few favorites that are REALLY difficult to part with every year. Unfortunately, we can't keep them all but it sure is nice knowing that they went to a good home. :)

    I know, it's hard to have to let them go. I've sold some in the past that I hated to see go-but it is so costly to keep very many these days.

    Congrats on finding them a wonderful new home! Can't ask for more than that! We don't have any kids on the ground yet, but I know when the time comes that we start selling it will be VERY DIFFICULT.
