VERY SAD DAY AT THE BAR H!

011

MY DEAR MAMA DIED YESTERDAY .  I RUSHED THE BABIES INSIDE AND WORKED NEARLY ALL NIGHT TRYING TO SAVE THEM, BUT IT WAS TOO LATE.

THE SADDEST PART FOR ME IS THAT I LOST MY FAVORITE GOAT AND HER LAST OFF SPRINGS.

STRANGE AS IT MAY SEEM TO SOME, MAMA FOLLOWED ME AROUND MAKING LITTLE NOISIES LIKE SHE WAS TALKING TO ME.  SHE ALWAYS CAME WHEN I WENT OUT INTO THE PASTURE.  I WILL MISS HER.

THE SAD PURPLE GOAT LADY

Oh, Barbara! NO! I'm terribly sorry. Please know that I'm thinking of you and am shedding some quiet tears for that sweet Mama goat and her little babies and for your loss. I know what it is to lose a treasured four-footed friend and in this case friends.

On a happier note, Jalina loves her blankie. Will talk more later.

Sending you big hugs and all my love.

In sympathy,

Sheila

I am truly sorry you are so sad. This was not an easy post for you do I'm sure. It's so hard to lose a friend, even the four legged ones. They are the dearest because there are no strings attached to their loyalty. I'll be thinking and praying for you today.

Barbara, your mama goat knew she had a kindred spirit in you. She was one lucky goat to have had you for a friend.

Dear Barbara,
I sent a note to you earlier, but I'll send another to express my deepest sympathies to you and your family.Mama Goat sounds as tho' she loved you, and you each understood the other, a treasured memory, to lose the babies also is devastating.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. Most Sincerely, Donnas' Mum, Yvonne B Newby

Oh My Dear Purple Goat Lady.. I am SO SO Sorry. I know how heartbroken you must be and I am crying for you.
To lose not only your special mama but the last babies as well- do you have any idea what could have gone wrong? It is hard during the cold time of year to save birth chill babies, I do have an article i can share in case you ever need it for reference.

Barbara, I'm so sorry, what I've come to learn about - well - anything is this: You love the ones, and the things, you serve.

Of course you love your animals. Your so sweet and you've been a wonderful goat mamma.

I love you Christmas purple back ground and your header.
