Farm life can be draining mentally, emotionally, and always physically. the little guy that survived birth Sunday was orphaned Monday night. Momma Goat didn’t make it. Goats that have more than 3 don’t always survive yet some do and they can have up to 4. They’ve only got two teats so anymore than 2 and they have to compete for food and some will become runts and it’s extremely hard on the moms. Mother Nature knows best, I guess. He’s off living with other orphaned goats drinking fresh raw Jersey milk. Way better for him than the powered replacer I was giving him. I won’t be up every 4 hours feeding him and have my bed back lol. I’ll definitely miss the little guy but I know it’s better for him to be with the other baby goats and have real milk. #goat#boer#buckling#orphan#farm#life#death#california#cachagua#rawmilk#babygoats
Raising livestock isn’t always what it’s crack up be. It’s heart wrenching at times. Two little girls died, this little guys a fighter and made it through. Not to mention today’s the 16th anniversary of my mom passing. Needless to say I’m pretty devastated. The highs are good but the lows are terrible. #farm#sad#boer#goats#life#death#farmer#buckling
