    Sorry guys I never get on here anymore but frequently read the posts.
    I lost my dear ol boy a few weeks ago.He is missed terribly and its very hard to walk outside and not hear him begging for treats.

    To Gordon-I feel horrible for letting you down and wish I could have prevented you from getting out the fence that night..My heart stopped when I saw you laying there unable to even lift your head up..I will miss taking pictures of you wearing the fake antlers,You were such a silly goat.I even taught you how to pull a wagon,You loved that !!
    Me and mom did all we could to save you but the freezing rain didn't help any nor did long night you endured laying in the yard soaking wet. :(
    You taught me responsibility and many other things in your 7yrs.
    I have tons of memories of you and you may be gone but will never be forgotten

    The goats got into the feed shed last night and ate alot of horse feed.Gordon being the oldest couldn't take it and coliced.I found him this morning laying in freezing rain.His temp was 95.1....I got him up and in the laundry room.I warmed him up and called my mom and the vet.The vet tubed him and pumped some of the grain out but it was to late.30 mins after we got home he crashed and died in my lap.
    I feel horrible and if the shed was locked properly he would still be alive. :tears:

    Sorry for letting you down boy,
