Death on the Ranch
As another week passes, we face another death. It has just been one week since my daughter lost her Bullmastiff, Bow. Now, we had a 2 year old goat - Double Bubble - have issues and it ended with us having to put her down this morning. She had been sick a few months ago and we had treated her. Then just 3 days ago, she miscarried a little buckling (she was 2 months early). After this, she appeared fine but then she went downhill quickly. We were treating for Listeriosis and Goat Polio but her condition degraded to seizures that would not stop. I felt as if we had no choice but to end her misery . . . after many tears.
