We said goodbye to our sweet “Lilly-Goat” this week, and it’s been a difficult few days. Phil spent time with her on the “goat tower” that last morning and I snapped a few photos.
It seems ironic that we bought Nibbles and Lilly because I saw Cuzco growing older and didn’t want to look out at an empty goat house. Yet they are both gone and he is still going strong. Of course, because they both had babies we will NOT have to look out at an empty goat house any time soon! Most of our goats are their descendants, and what sweet and lovely goats they are!
Lilly was always the one at the top of the goat tower. Always. But her daughter, Petunia and her son, Finn were never far behind.
Lilly loved a lot of things. Heck, this goat just plain loved life! But this was her favorite thing: To be embraced by a human being.

So sorry to hear this, Nan. She looks like a sweet and beautiful girl, and your reminisces of her reflect how special she was. Love to you!
p.s. Watch out…I haven’t been reading blogs much lately, but I just hopped on here to catch up today, and the girls discovered it. You’re in for lots of comments, I think. We have to work out some kind of system, because they’re not allowed on the computer much, and they ALL want to read EVERY LAST POST, starting from the beginning. It might take months, but we’ll get there! Also, the girls said that you are beautiful and that Phil looks young enough to be a teenager. Go figure. 🙂
So glad all you gals are enjoying it! I see you recently updated your blog… I’ll have to go check it out! 🙂
