Ups and downs

Well, it was a sad day yesterday.  Ginger, our oldest Grandma goat died at age 14.  It was sort of expected by me and my sister, as she wasn't acting herself at all for the past week.  God gave her a long life and made her produce some beautiful goats!

1 Samuel 2:6-7
 6 The LORD kills and makes alive;  
    He brings down to the grave and brings up.
 7 The LORD makes poor and makes rich;
    He brings low and lifts up.

On a brighter note, we bought another goat...a beautiful Nubian doe and she's pregnant, due in August!  She's now the second biggest goat we own  :)

Is this a goat or an octopus?
Stay cool!


  1. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss; we lost our oldest diary doe this year, too.
    Your new girl is beautiful- I love her colors and gentle eyes. Hope she will be a blessing!

  2. Love the moon spots on your new girl. Sorry about Ginger.
