That just makes my stomache churn. My heart is just absolutely broken for his unfortunate goat. One minute you say you're going to miss him, and that he's your baby - and then you say you don't care where he goes.....just so long as you get money.
That is so sad.
I used to have Lamancha *sp* goat, and he was my lil' darling. And as far as I can recall - he was FAR from being a hay and grain burner.
So you're basically implying that you'd rather her keep this goat and then she wouldn't have enough money to buy feed for her other animals. If you ask me, that's a selfish attitude.
Anny is smart. She's knows what is best for her animals.
And I don't know if you realize it, but like IndyHorse said, Boers are almost always bred for their meat, and while I hate to see an animal go to slaughter, I'd rather her have the money to take care of the rest of her animals than to keep this goat and not be able to buy something that she may really need.
