    hubby would be if he came home to Hope inside the house?


    I just feel so bad, she is outside crying, at least every time she hears me moving around in the kitchen. She's all alone, since Sugar, Cowbell, and Snowflake were sold and Rudy is visiting her husband down the street.

    I've been spending a large part of the day with her outside, even making her nice special hot alfafa mushes with a few raisins sprinkled on top, but she's so lonely and sad at night, it breaks my poor heart.

    She would probably be in my house!!!! I have the very large dog crate that I could bring in and she could follow me around or nap in her kennel.

    As soon as she gets bred. We never saw her cycle when she was with Buckly so we're giving it another shot with the neighbor's buck. Stubborn brat.

    How long was she with a buck?

    Poor girl ...being alone.. :( maybe get her a wether for company ..... she has a long time to wait.....for a companion.... if she is still waiting to be bred :( :hug:
  7. A wether is not a bad idea so this does not happen again. They are not too pricy and to be honest many need a good home. Poor girl, poor you...maybe and LDG could help some if not a wether? It is not the same but better then no one at all? :shrug:

    Right now, I really can't bring home a wether that will just end up resold to make room. Not to mention by the time she got done beating him up Rudy would be home! Plus she'd just scream louder, like she always does when I bring a new goat home.

    I feel really bad about her being lonely, but this was a strange situation. Rudy went to visit the buck, and a GREAT opportunity came along for Snowflake and Cowbell, so they were sold, leaving Hope alone. It certainly wasn't planned!

    Thankfully, this shouldn't happen again, as I have the two new doelings coming next month or so, and Rudy will come home, and it should be okay.

    Until then, I'm doing my best to spend nearly all day with her.
