    Hey all,

    Well i kinda had to take a leave of absence from Goatspot...on november 11th, the hubby and i lost our baby. I wasn't doing alright at first but now i am doing better...well enough i can talk about it without getting too emotional...hence the reason i am back here!!!!! I missed you all so much!!!! Good news is all my older does are BRED!!!! i will be kidding out 6 mature does between March 12th and April 25th....yay!!!! my yearlings on the other hand are something else...who knows when they will come into heat. I did borrow a cute blackheaded buck from my dad for my younger stuff (i was afraid my big buck was too big for them) i am hoping between him and my red older buck i will get some cuuutttiieee boer kids. Ummm, what else, oh yeah the hubband and i bought a new pickup well new used...a 2002 chevy silvarado (i am a ford girl but he wanted it ;)) it is the newest vehicle he has ever owned. So that is putting a damper on the goat investing right now....oh yeah!!!!!!!!! I AM MOVING....well not very far but i am moving....most of you know that my goats are in a pasture about 4 miles from my house...well guess what,...the guy that was living there that let me keep my goats there MOVED OUT...we have to totally re-do the bathroom, but other then that we are hoping to be moved in by the end of plenty of time for kidding season!!! How has everyone else been???????

    I am sorry for your loss. Our family went through the same thing last year with my daughter, but she gave us a new grandson named Conner this year.

    Good news on your goaties and am happy to read that you will now be closer to them.

    Marcie, glad you have come back. Nothing I say can help at times like these but lean on your girlfriends as many of us me included have been there and can understand your pain.

    You are ahead of me in the breeding goats, I am giving all my girls time to settle in, gain weight and work out who is boss before I do any breeding here so I will likly not have any spring babies. Your move sounds like a good one. When you get all moved you will have to share pictures with us.

    I am so sorry for your loss, I know the pain and heartache of wanting, but not are in my prayers. Good news on your goats and moving in "with" them....better for you and them when those kids start to arrive.

    Cougcowgirl, I am so sorry for your loss. I know you already know, but the Lord did that for a reason and you may never understand what the reason was. I lost several babies, but I thank the Lord that he gave me two beautiful kids to keep. It does get better. HUGS TO YOU AND THE HUBBY. :grouphug:
    Congratulations, on the does.
