We are doing ok.
I really appreciate all the sympathetic comments about our little tragedy.
It was nice, the lady who sold us the goats offered to let us have another goat (Bella's sister, actually) since Lydia died.
I think we are going to pass though. Faithy really wants us to get her, and maybe it is silly to pass it up... But I don't think she owes us anything. This is a chance you take when you buy an animal.
It was not her fault Lydia got sick. She did what she was supposed to do. We did what we were supposed to do. It just happens sometimes.
Anyhow, Kevin may decide that he wants to go ahead and get Alice (Bella's sister, the one she offered us) but I don't think he will.
We ARE however, going to breed Hope in August and have babies next January!!! That way Faithy can take a goat project for 4H!!! :)
The girls already have names picked out if we do have another baby (or two) from Hope... they are: Michelangelo if it is a boy, and Gypsy for a girlie. I kinda hope we get to use Gypsy, as I love it a lot!
But I told Johanna that I may use her method of coming up with names to name some of our future goat babies!! Here's what I am coming up with so far ;)
