What sad sad news. Our longtime friend and the reason we have dairy goats lost her husband on Tuesday. We lost the doe we got from them, who started all this madness, in Feb. Her husband got sick in Feb and lost his fight this week. We have kept in sporadic contact for the last 7.5 years. We always see them at shows and catch up. They were a lovely couple, and she is a nice lady.

When I heard I immediately sent her an e-mail and prayed she hadn't changed it since we last talked. I told her how sorry I was, but that now I knew Peaches had a great tender until we could join her ourselves.

She e-mailed me right back. Asking about Peaches. Offering us her togg herd. Which I hands down offered to take. So much for downsizing. So funny what people find comfort in. A quick conversation about something totally unrelated to the tragedy at hand can be like a little break in the storm. So it looks like the Peaches clan will reign again. Not that they don't already. I did have to ask to not get anything to closely related to Abra, Peaches' mom, since everything I own can go back to Peaches, with the exception of one doe and her two kids.
