One less to welcome

We’ve really been looking forward to Tigerlily’s kid(s) this year, but unfortunately it’s not to be. She miscarried on Sunday and passed a single buckling on Tuesday morning. She was a month early. I’m not sure what to do with this gal. I think she’d been fighting too much with the other goats. They weren’t picking on her–she was deliberately provoking goats higher in the pecking order and kept getting whacked, so I have secretly been a little worried about her pregnancy. It’s disappointing, but she seems to be fine and isn’t mourning or acting “off” so I think all should be well. I’ll have to train her to pull a cart this summer so she has a job. She’s big, strong, athletic, and flashy so she needs to do more than just eat all summer.
