  • Is this a tribute shot or is she doing better? She looks wide and healty in this picture so i am assuming the former. Must be a sad day on the farm.

  • It's a tribute shot from Summer 2009. Ruffles died Monday. She never fully recovered from the Ketosis. The vet I work with speculates that since she didn't rebound with the vitamin B / Polypropolin Glycol / Probiotics treatment suggests there was something more serious like cancer in the background.

    Ruffles leaves a hole in our hearts but we are consoled by her three daughters. She was our best goat. Her grand daughter, Able from this year's kidding, is wholy of our farm, in that Able is our first goat born to goats born on our farm.

    I didn't think Ruffles would recover enough to kid again, but I had hoped she would have a summer in the sun with her choice of lush growth.

  • Amy, she wasn't prengnant in that shot from summer 2009. Ruffles was a wide goat. A pretty, wide goat.
