Some people buys flowers or cook you food when you lose a loved one, but in our family we buy you small livestock.
I realize that this might be strange to some, but to us there is no better way to say “I am sorry for you loss” than with a baby goat. As you know, Savannah lost her beloved goat, Kandi, last week. Well, while she was gone to a friend’s her sister, Cheyenne, and I went and bought a bottle baby boer goat for her. She knew nothing about it. When she got home, she plopped down on the couch by her daddy. He looked over at her and said, ‘We got something for you” He then lifted the blanket on his lap and revealed the cute little thing. Yes, you understand that correctly, my city born husband was sitting on the couch watching TV while holding a baby goat. Goat kids are just that cute!
Needless to say, she was very happy. She still cries from time to time missing her Kandi, but the funny antics and bottle feeding go along way in helping the hurt pass.
