    Save your breath, Indy. .... Never mind, I take that back. You are teaching the rest of us stuff. So what if some people refuse to learn.

    Just because you say someone else would have done something less humane does not make the situation anything other than what it is.

    Always I never said we weren't also to blame, but all the blame doesn't lie in one place, there are alot of factors. And many things and people to blame, we are one of them, I never once said we weren't but i'm pointing out that we arn't the only ones or things to blame in this whole situation. Yes we brought an animal home that we didn't have money in the bank to immediately care for. Yes we brought an animal home when the kids don't have a car to take it to the vet when it starts kidding. (which could have happened without someone here to call around and help out, there could've been no kids and no one there to check on her) but we did go buy food the day we brought her home, as well as hay and minerals and immediately got up to date on care, as it's been awhile since mom's been around goats and things do change. And now here we are with goat grain, and alfalfa in our house and with nothing to eat it. So I just want you to know that I DO know we are partly to blame, but we ARN'T the only factor at fault.

    I am so not surprised. When you first posted pics of your new goat, I took an intake of air but held my thoughts. When you said it was having trouble birthing, I knew this wasn't going to end well, especially as you said it had been a few hours. At that point, I believe I asked for an update, as I just knew this would happen.

    I find it very hard to believe that you didn't have a friend or a neighbor or a taxi cab or anything that could have taken you to a vets. Most 18 yr old girls I have ever known would live for the drama of racing a goat to the vets to be saved.

    Please seriously consider the care you are able to provide for your animals before bringing something else home to eat the left over food you have.

    Left over food I have? I went out and bought grain for the goat? I didn't feed it scraps? When did I ever say I fed it scraps? And maybe when you were an 18 yr old little girl you loved drama. But I sure don't.

    You say that you went out and bought it grain like I should pat you on the back for that. That does not make you a better owner. It is what one should do when they get a new animal.

    Why not give the left over goat feed to the goat expert who came over and helped you. I am sure they could use it. Kind of like payment for them helping you out.

    That's what I meant the left over grain and minerals you bought. My concern was that you would get another goat as you already have the feed.

    Are you seriously saying that you didn't have a friend that would come over and drive the goat to a vets for you?

    I think this whole situation could be a lesson for you. That perhaps you shouldn't bring home animals and expect to reply on your parents to provide money for their care.

    If you can't pay for it on your own. Don't bring it home. This way you won't ever have to wait for permission to get medical care, buy food, or do anything else that is needed. You are an adult now at 18, this is what adults do. They pay for things on their own.

    I couldn't do that without my parents permission AlexS it's their goat, and their money. If it was my money I was spending I would have found a way to get it there. And Always that is a good idea actually.

    Coffee once again the goat wasn't mine. It was my parents.

    Well, if I was watching my mother's dog for example, and that dog was dieing, I would rush it to the vet and pay for whatever needed done myself.

    If my mom paid me back after great. If not, then at least I did what was needed to help the dog. I think maybe a quick look at priorities are in order here.
