    Zoe, you were my bestest, most favorite girl in the world. You were always so sweet and loving and a great mommy and milker.

    Chrysta, I loved you too, even though we had our differences, you were a sweet girl and so typically Alpine.

    Singer and your unborn kids, You kept me on my toes and I loved you. You always had beautiful babies and I know these would have be wonderful too.

    Aine, you were your mothers wonderful daughter and would have been just like her.

    Essy, you were more Nubian than Alpine and were sweet and just beginning to be a super milker.

    Roxy, you were just like your mother and I know you would have been a real beauty and great mom. Your unborn kids would have had spots, I know in my heart they did. They would have been beautiful because you were too.

    Pan, you were such a sweet buck, so much of a mommas boy. Your kids were just as friendly and beautiful.

    Sparkle- you were my tiny bottle baby with a huge will to live. My mommas girl who loved to be cuddled.

    Dazzle- my bigger, stronger bottle girl with the beautiful color and personality.

    Pele- My first born daughter from your dad. You were a beauty and would have been great in the show ring. You had it all.

    Pandora- with your unusual coloring and spots to be, you would have been striking. Second daughter of your father, you would have been a contender in the ring also.

    Tank, Frosty and Victor- You were beautiful, friendly, smart boys who were to go to a new home this weekend.

    I'm so sorry my babies. I wish I didn't have to go to work and leave you home. I should have been here to protect you. I love you and miss you and this place feels so empty without you.

    I'm so sorry babies, there is so much else I should say but I am not dealing with this very well. My heart is broken.

    You loved them so much. What a moving eulogy. In time, it will get easier to cope. Hugs to you, Sully.

    Update. No, the district attorney refused to prosecute even though the Fire Marshal did an awesome investigation.

    I have a new herd, 2 are granddaughters of Zoe, the rest are new lines and even some are new breeds. I miss my babies. I have to walk over the cement pad every day where my babies died. The kid who did it has since grown up and moved away. I hope Karma takes care of him.

    :(:(Oh my Gosh ! that is such a horrific act. I am speechless for words to express the sympathy I feel for you. How in the world can someone do such an act. I will pray for you that you can find forgiveness in your heart. I know what I would feel and have thoughts of but if you are a believer in Christ then you know as well as I do what you need to do. It is hard but best for you. We can hope that the kid doesn't commit other acts like this. God bless you dragonlair.

    How tragic - that was too terrible to think about. I thought if you pressed charges they had to pursue it. Beautiful tribute and glad you have a new herd and barn.

    I know how much time and effort and care giving not to mention the amount of money We have invested into the few Goats we have. I am sure that you feel the same way and have done the same things. I hope you have even more success with your new herd and facilities.
