Our sweet little Zeus has crossed the rainbow Bridge. It's been a very tough time for my family especially for Everleigh and me. Zeus was Everleigh's buddy and she keeps telling me that she wants Zeus back. It's even hard for Finny. He hasn't been himself and it breaks my heart to see him alone again. I hate how quickly he got sick and that everything I did just wasn't enough. Life doesn't seem fair sometimes. And I find myself feeling angry and upset. We will forever love our little Zeus an I miss him terribly.
Krista---I feel your pain. Our neighbor conned me in to breeding sick goats and they all died so young and it broke my heart. I worked and worked with them and spent a lot of money on vets. Each death broke my heart and when I realized hers was dying too from diseases----it just made me mad! Life isn't fair and I can't handle grief well---but we do heal. You loved that calf and did all you could for it. Forgive yourself and just know it knew the love and care you gave it. Life do get tedious the older you get---lots of sorrow. You all were good to it and it knew a blessed life. And I am so sorry.

Thank you ladies for your kind words. Finny seems to be doing ok. He still seems very lonely and down but we are trying to spend as much time with him as possible. My heart still aches but hugging Finny helps ease the pain.
Dianna, we borrowed 2 little boys from husbands uncle so that Finny won’t be lonely anymore. My 2 youngest were excited for new friends but my oldest was very upset and mad that we didn’t bring Zeus back home. It’s so sad to see kids have to deal with grief as well. It never gets any easier.
