Got more rain here - temps down to 78 and holding. We ate dinner on the patio with a nice breeze and didn't sweat doing it!
Lost my sick goat today - had her for several years and she had lots of nice babies (sets of twins) too. She was one of my pure bred south african fullblood nannies. Always had painted babies, too. Here the past few months she was going down hill - had a funny little tumor on the side of her jaw that had tentacles which went deep into her muscles/jaw/bones/under the eye. I think it was just her time. This morning she was unusually peppy and followed me around the garden while I messed with the chickens. Ate her awesome buffet of everything goats love and was extra enthusiastic about it. You know how animals suddenly get that spurt of energy right before they go - well, went to Lowe's for some more nails for the nail gun and when we got back, she had laid down and passed. JUST passed actually - I did goat CPR and chest compressions - got a few irregular heartbeats, but she was too weak to sustain it. So I let her go - guess it was time.
Sad, but not so sad - she wasn't going to get better - it was just a matter of time - I'm glad that she wasn't going to have to keep dealing with this heat. This summer is a tough one - even on the healthy creatures.
