As some of you know I was in Iowa until today at 8:00 pm. I came home and I could tell something was wrong. My dad (who has been taking care of the goats) was quiet and just off. So when we asked how the goats were he broke down and cried, so obviously I new something was wrong. He handed me a letter which he had written. I got through the first paragragh and it said Upset and Isabel died. Saturday night we had a very big storm and the power went out, my dad is very good at looking after the goats and checks on them several times a day. I have a German Shepherd named Quincy and he loves 'his' goats and looks after them (from the outside of the fence). My dad said that Quincy wouldn't come up onto the porch that night, and that is very unlike him. But since the power went out it was hard for him to see outside so he could'nt see that the barn door had come unlatched. So the next morning he said Janna was outside (this is 6 in the morning) so he ran to her and put her inside the barn, and he didn't see Upset so he panicked and ran down the hill to our creek (which is down a very steep long hill) were he saw Upset laying in the creek, dead, he carried her up the hill slipping and sliding. Then he noticed Isabel was missing, so he went back down and found her down the creek from where he had found her mom (Upset) so he carried her up the hill also. He dug a grave in the pouring rain. He keeps saying it was his fault that he didnt think something was wrong when Quincy didnt come onto the porch. He loves the goats, mostly because I do. He is allergic to all of our animals so they have to be outdoor animals (all except Tyson) so he has to wear a mask while around the goats and in the barn. I don't blame him in the slightest. I just wish it didn't happen to them. Especially since Upset was 54 days away from kidding. Chelsey I will miss you girls very much.
