We are anxiously waiting for the birth of lambs and kids, yet we overlooked the loss that often goes hand in hand with gain. Today we lost our little Oberhasli buckling Pan. Since we got Pan, he has been small and never quite in the best of health. He always got hit hardest from parasites, and because of his size, was the brunt of many a head butt.
For the last few months, he has had his own pen between his favorite girls, he did love Maple and Alice but was too small to deliver. Well, we shall actually see about that, he did enjoy trying.
This morning when I went to the barn, he was down in his pen. I decided it was just time to let him go. I have tried everything in my arsenal to keep him going, but there comes a time when you just have to say good bye.
So Good Bye Pan, we loved you and you will always have a special place in our hearts.
