First off, Please do not move this to off topic. I want this to be visible to everyone. Honey was born March 8, 2009. She was born with really bad contracted tendons. This photo was taken the day she was born. Our barn flooded the day everyone kidded. Of course that made a sloppy mess. All the babies were brought inside for a few days. Then they were bedded down in deep straw beds in the barn but they were let out daily to play in the barn while I was in there. Honey fell in the mud/dirt due to her bad front legs. She developed joint ill in her right knee. She was put on antibiotics immediately. She unforunately didn't have them along enough and the joint ill flared up really bad for a 2nd round. These are her legs 3 days after birth. This is the 2nd round of joint ill in the same knee. A very good friend of mine walked me through treatment. I got the meds and with her help on meds & and how to splint Honey's legs she started to improve. She went from not wanting to move around to being able to jump and play with a splint on her leg. Not very long after starting her round of antibiotics the swollen area ruptured. All of the infection drained. Her knee healed. Her legs straightened slowly, bit by bit. I never believed this little girl would ever make it as a show goat. She was my baby. She was Delilah's kid so of course she was my favorite and honestly if this kid was to grow up and live out her life here as just a pet, it was going to happen. She spent the first part of her life(month or so) in our bathroom. Now that wasn't all that bad. She was the center of attention...anyone who went in there and used the bathroom could be heard talking to her. She would struggle to stand up in her tote. She'd put her head over the side and practically demand attention. She was never a loud kid in the bathroom. Super quiet at night. Talked softly when she saw us coming with her bottle. She was an expensive kid with the vet trip and all of the meds. The vet said if I had the time and wanted to try to save her to go ahead and try to. This youngster has grown up so much from the time she was born to now. She proved that she was a fighter and wasn't going to give up any time soon. Some people thought she wasn't going to make it, I almost believed it to. But she's 100% healthy today. The vet couldn't believe it was her when he saw her at the time he was doing health papers. We went to Ohio and I had just mentioned that Honey wasn't going to be shown b/c I didn't have anyone to show her. A good friend ours, Brenda, from R&W Farms offered to show her for me. I am sooooo thankful she did. Honey has gone through alot and she is a two time Reserve Champion. I was so surprised and thrilled she got a Reserve Champion at her very first ever show. I'll never forget the judge saying 'that is why the intermediate kid will be my Reserve Champion today'. I literally had tears of joy when she got her Res. Champion. She's proudly displaying her rosette. Here she is with both of them. THANKYOU TO EVERYONE WHO KEPT HER IN YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS. THANKYOU TO EVERYONE WHO OFFERED ADVICE. I'LL NEVER FORGET IT.
