    The doe that we lost last night has a friend that we bought her with, another 2 yr old nubian milker.

    The friend has been standing there all day just crying for her lost buddy.

    Breaks my heart. :(

    They sure make attachments and know when someones missing. She needs lots of love.

    I'm sorry, I know it just makes it harder on you.

    I'm so sorry... Isn't it amazing how they know these things? And how awful you feel when you don't know how to explain it to them?

    Just another tick in the "animals are more intelligent than we give them credit for" column.

    Again, I'm sorry. :(

    I'm sorry.
    Kitty's 12 week old dam raised doeling is not adjusting as well as I would hope. She misses her dam and isn't really bonded to anyone else in the pen. I am hoping taking her to the group of her age mates will help her adjust.

    I have had this happen before as well and it is so sad. Give her lots of attention and hugs.

    That is sad. They bond so tightly to their goaty friends and family and grieve when they are gone. I don't know if I could ever sell just one doe. I think I would have to insist that a buyer takes two. Buyers in the past have always bought more than one as that is what they wanted. I think I would turn down someone that only wanted one of my goats...something to think about anyway.
