And then there was one

Well, another baby goat died, well she had to be put down technically. She got some sort of vitamin deficiency or goat disease. She was paralyzed, and had a 107 degree fever. She was fine yesterday, then today she was dead. That seems to be the norm now. They do fine, and then they die. I'm not really sure I'm cut out for this, because frankly, this sucks majorly.

Goats are supposed to be so natural. I just don't understand how come you have to keep getting your heart broke. I know you are scared about Gabby delivering now. We'll keep praying for them and for you. We love you. MOM

Alicia, so sorry to hear this news.
I don't think I could raise animals (well maybe chickens or bees, but goats, I don't know. . ."
You are in my thoughts and heart.
Love, Sandra

I am so sorry~ the only thing that I know with baby goats is that when we had our momma goat (nana) had twins, our wolf had killed both of them just after she gave birth. Hopefully this next one will go smoothly, cause once you have hit the bottom, all you can do is go up!
