Oh Gloomy Days

I know we all get these moments/days/years that make us feel as if life is happening without our permission and say.  Because well it is.

Two animals are leaving my ownership here shortly that I had no plans of ever releasing and its kind of bitter sweet.  I know its for the best and I am grateful for the new homes they will be getting but its still hard to part with an animal you have put a lot of time and heart into.

In the year 2010 I have had to part with more then I feel is my share to part with.  Its been a stretching experience and not one I want to repeat for any reason at all.  Im more callus to the world and what it throws my way.  I guess thats that cynical me talking but its hard to "talk over top of" when it shouts so loudly in my head.

Had my first case of real bloat here today - scary stuff.  Grateful to my friend Ashley and my vet Dr. Bergmann who gave me sound advise to help pull her through.  Hopefully in time she will be back to her old self.

Angie is still battling some chronic issue and it has me baffled.  If I just only knew what causes her bouts of sickness I would feel so much better about attacking it and making her better.  The vet has been out and I feel its like I am doing everything possible yet its not enough.

Thankfully the other 3 seem perfectly healthy with no issues at all.  They notice that SP and Angie havent been themselves so that puts them a bit out of whack but otherwise the 3 are doing well.

I have 1 sold doe due in March 2 due in April and 1 due in May.   A bit spread out I know but I guess God knows best.

I am going to try to get into the Christmas Spirit as it is that time of year.....maybe a swift nudge in the rear will do the trick, well with goats we know thats a possibility ;)

Hugs to you Stacey....you are preaching to the choir. I so know how you are feeling right now. I am usually a happy-go-lucky person....but with the loss of Murph, I have been so down. I had no idea how I would be effected by the loss of one. I am trying hard to march onward and find my happy-go-lucky self again and get into the holiday spirit. I think God shakes things up every now and then so we don't get too complacent...why some get more thrown at them at times, no one knows but him. My mom always told me it is not for us to question, but boy it is hard not to!
Keep your chin up and look forward to the New Year!
Merry Christmas to you and your family!
