Two weeks ago tomorrow I lost a heavily bred doe, cricket. She was due Christmas Day with twins.
And my buck Oreo who was 8 months old.
The both were intentionally killed by a crazy mad man and his dogs.
Don't worry, he's paying for what he did.
This is them:

Head Eye Plant Vertebrate Blue


South Oaks Classy Cricket

Working animal Goat Grass Terrestrial animal Dog breed


Capretta farms Oreo rose.

My dad and I both decided that sophya and phoebe should not be here so he took them home with him.
They were doing better after a day or so of settling in.
Well that weekend my dad went out of town so he brought them to his friends house who also has goats.

I got a text Saturday morning saying phoebe had runny poo.
I treated her for worms and coccidia.

Well she wasn't any better yesterday so dad made an appt for today at 8 am.
I asked dad what they said a little after 8 and she didn't make it.
The stress & not having her bowls wiped out before feeding again caused a spike in coccidia and it got so bad that she passed.
Dad and I both agreed, she needs to go back with him until the pen has the 7500 volt strand of electric fencing to keep bears out.

This was little tots estate phoebe :

They all had such great life's with me. But I just don't know what to do.

I hope the know I will always love them and never forget them. <3

Now I'm down to sophya and Sabrina.

Any advice on what exactly to do is greatly appreciated.

Love you girls and Oreo!<3

Awe Emilie that just sucks! So sorry :( :hug:

I wouldn't use the de-wormer pellets though.... And safeguard doesn't work in most areas either. It works for M. Worm, but it doesn't sound like they had that :(

Again so sorry! :(

Thanks!
Safeguard doesn't work in most areas but in my area, it's the only thing that works and isn't too strong like ivermectin or valbazen.
Plus I'm not one to deworm my goats every month even though they're fine, so anything really works with my girls.

I gave it just in case.

I just don't know how to tell Emily (the girl I got her from) that she, cricket, and Oreo died.

Thanks guys!!
I think I convinced mom to get me little tots estate kids.
They have a deal, get two does & a buck kid for 1000$!
So we'll see.


I just really hope my main doe (sophya) stays strong for me.
I'll be going out to see her here soon.

Any advice in giving her anything to stay strong?
She's not sick & I don't think she will get sick but.

Well,
Completely by accident of course, I was going down my dads driveway and sophya darted out in front of me.......
I'm sure you know where this is going.
Down to one goat.
I'm so....... Lost right now.
I don't know what to do.

There's gotta be a reason......

Oh Emily!!! :shock: I'm SO SO sorry!!! :tears: :hug: I wish I could do something... :tears:
:( :( :hug:
There must be some greater reason this is happening to you even though we can't see it. That's all I can think, it just doesn't make any sense!! :( I'm so sorry again. :hug:

Thanks guys.

There's two reason I can think of......
Gods just testing me to see what u can be put through, to see if I truly am made for this,

Or

My goats were around a place they shouldn't have been & it's better them not to be here & suffer the diseases they were possibly exposed to.

At this point I'm trying to keep my head up.

Ohhh sunshine I am so freaking sorry. I read this whole thread for the first time and am crying for you. I hate when bad things happen to good people and you seem like such a good person. There is nothing I can say to make you feel better I know this but I am sorry :(
