RIP Cookie-goat

I went out to do the morning goat feeding and found Cookie dead in the pasture. He obviously went off by himself to die, since he wasn't on the way to the water and he wasn't near food. He wasn't nearly as old as Jared, but he'd had some chronic problems and was getting old quickly.

Sire of a Champion

I purchased Cookie from Kid Hollow Farm as a match for Anna (daughter of Jared by Jessie). They had many pretty boys together, and one girl, Kezzi. He also enjoyed time with Dahlia two years ago that resulted in the twins Henry and Maurice. Cookie started out as a very shy and skittish goat, and he only mellowed somewhat along the way. He and Anna got along very well, and he stood stud this past fall with her, so we will see his last legacy in March.

Edited on April 1st: His last kid from Anna was a little girl, born on March 23.

Sancho was born in 2001, Jessie and Summer were born in 2002, and Loki in 2004. Alys, Anna, and Dahlia are all from 2006. Lerris is from 2007..

I think so, too. He was eating breakfast with the boys yesterday. Sometime after that, his time arrived.

I'm sorry about Cookie. I'm glad he had a good life.

Thanks, me too. I like to think that he did.

I'm sorry for your loss.

I'm sorry about Cookie, but he had a good life and made beautiful babies.

Thanks. Yeah, I like to think it was pretty good around here for him. And even if Gyre was cute in a way only a cow could love, I think that Ari made up for it.

I'm sorry for the loss of Cookie. He seemed like a really cool goat!
13th-Jan-2015 09:35 pm (UTC)
Thanks. Yeah, he had his own style, to be sure.

I am so sorry! That's an especially rough way to start your day.

Thank you for the sympathies. Yes, that was certainly not the best way to start my day.

I'm so sorry about Cookie. I've not been on LJ in a while, and I saw your post about the other goats who are getting on, as well. I hope your 2015 has joys aplenty to offset the loss.

Thank you for the sympathy and the good wishes for this year. I hope that Cookie's last stand gives us cute or fabulous kids, too.
