    I am sad to say, Cookie Monster had to be put down :( yesterday before i got home from school. he had been bloated the night before, but after we got him passing gas i was told not to worry about him. dad took him to the vet thinking he would just give him a shot or something, and the discovered his bladder had exploded... sad to say i had been feeling like i needed to be with him all day, and i came home and was told i would never see him again..... i had a wonderful close to eight months with him, and he did well for me. he always did what i asked him to and he was a good boy. woop wooop at least he got one more second place before he left me. and he helped me earn a first in showman ship. so we both came a long way, but it ended a month to soon.[attachment=1:16yltb0y]about to go in for showman.JPG[/attachment:16yltb0y][attachment=0:16yltb0y]DSC05401 (3).JPG[/attachment:16yltb0y]

    AWW so sorry, my favorite goat "Rocko" died this way. One thing my vet recommended was to feed my wethers and young bucks, lamb starter as it has ammonium cloride in it..this can help with urinary calculi. Now my "winter" feed contains it. Whatever the case, it is just too bad that this happend to your goat.. :hug:

    Thank you all so much.... my teachers understood today, and didnt ask me to say anything.. I got lucky and had a teacher I could talk to this year so I got to cry and vent in the middle of the hall during class... LOl!!!! I doodled a bunch of pics on my papers today.. I came up with one good out come of this.... He wont end up on someones holiday dinner plate like mickey did. so I guess that is better... pluse now mickey has a play mate to dancing on the hay bales with and they are both enjoying all the green grass and horse cookies they could imagine.

    i think they are harder to lose then my cats would be. i couldnt say dogs but i can say cats.... they are just so much like dogs, when we walk he would let me get a few feet away then come runnin and catch up... or on the way back towards the barn he would run a few yards ahead stop and call and wait for me.... i really dont know why i got another goat, or why i plan on getting another one when it is so hard in the end... but i love them while i have them. and one day i will see them again :angelgoat:
