It’s been a sad day today, saying farewell to old our goat, whom we had since he was 5 days old and the size of a cat. But he’d been unwell for a week, and I took the decision to let him go while he was still in good spirits.
As much as I wanted to try to keep him going for longer, I know it was the right thing to do for him, and he went quietly to sleep in my arms.
He was a big goat, very affectionate, and as gentle as a kitten. I hope he’s met up with his old friend Thruppence, who went ahead of him some years ago.
