I'm leaving this post. It was wrong of me to post my true inner feelings. I have nothing more to say due to it rising conflict.

Dog question: No. We decided against getting an adult dog.

Seeing as the op asked for opinions, I have to wonder why a buck who got all the bad recessive genes was being bred??

The whole thing makes me go

I think, above all, what disturbs me about this post is the content warning, which the poster did bother to put on, is termed as "mildly upsetting".

I raise dairy goats, and they are my babies. Due to the nature of dairy goats, the kids are bottle raised so babies being orphaned isn't as big of a deal as it is among meat bred goats like Boers who nurse their own young.

But, an animal in my care, ANY animal in my care, that got run over and had it's "skull crushed" would be deemed as far, far higher than "mildly upsetting".

I agree with Sarahver about the mentality of "I didn't like her anyways, so no biggy" is chilling. To me, that's like, freaky personality disorder, that kind of lack of empathy. Scary stuff.

Now that is a good question, Golden!

Maybe that is why one of the babies is worth keeping and the other has bad genetics and a bad personality so it is not worth keeping?

You see, I do get only livestock, when we had over 100 cows here, they were livestock, but we still cared for them. If something gets ill you either vet it or shoot it, you can't just leave an animal in the state the OP describes her boy there.

As to losing one you don't like much, hey it happens with live stock, but what you don't do is post about it on a message board, and expect people to understand. If you lose a loved animal then share. If you lose 'one of those' then just get on with your life.

"Its' just a goat", "It's just a dog", "It's just a cow", "It's just a horse"...I say "It's just a life"...no biggie just a living breathing creature who probably had a horrible death having it's head ran over just trying to get a little shade...god that would be a horrific way to die...I feel sorry for your animals...you probably don't even see how egotistical you are...thats the saddest thing...they only matter if YOU think they matter right...they are all the same living creatures and deserve the same humane treatment...

This post really makes me wonder if it's for real.

You contradict yourself a lot, IlovemyPhilip. First you're the owner of this farm, but when any responsibility is brought up, you're "just a kid and the parents are to blame?" I'm so confused.

Freak accidents happen. I'm sorry for your goat that got ran over. Stuff like that happens. But the fact that the WAY it died didn't disturb you much is a bit disturbing in itself. Any life taken so graphically, whether you liked that life or not, should give you cringes up the spine. It's just a little bone chilling how little empathy you had for that goat.

Oh well to each their own. Just please, don't get more goats. It sounds like the first goat that died that you truly "loved" didn't have proper vet care. I could be wrong, but it sure sounds that way.

Whoever says, "Diamonds are a girl's best friend"... Obviously has never rode a horse!

This is VERY upsetting. Not MILDY upsetting. I had a baby goat, she was kept in the cubby house until she could be put out into a run or tethered to eat. I can't imagine what it would have been like if it was HER that got run over. Heres my story. We had a pup. I wasn't really into her. But when she got run over by our delivery truck, I didn't just say "oh well, I didn't liker her anyway" I felt sorry for this poor pup. She did end up dying by the way. She was gone before anyone got to her.

A life is a life. My question is, if you didn't "like her" Why keep her? Why not give her to some little kid that would love her and care for her? This story is very upsetting. Have some empathy for your poor goat, and her now orphaned babies.
