I have 6 goats, all girls but one is a baby boy. I locked them all in the barn lastnight cause they had pushed the fence out and got out, so in the barn they went until this morning, when I had the time to fix the fence. Well, this morning I went out to collect eggs and I saw some bloody little chunks in the straw. I thought someones water had broke and we were gonna have another baby. Well , all the girls were standing and watching me, except for Mocha. Mocha is the oldest goat we have and we have had her for almost 6 years now. Nothing is welcome on our farm that isnt kid friendly, i have 2 young sons. Well I walked over to her and there was a little blood trail that right to her. Turns out that one of the other girls must have caught her with a horn because she had a big hole in her tummy, and her intestines were hanging out. My sons were in the barn with me and I didnt want them to see it but they saw it when my dh led her away so he could put her down. It was AWFUL, my sons are 4 and 6, so they didn't understand why daddy was going to shoot her. My dh's dad was there and he tried to explain it to them, cause by then I was bawling my eyes out. They were crying and screaming at daddy to stop. After the deed was done we sat with the kids and explained to them that she was in really bad pain and that we couldn't let her suffer anymore. I am just so depressed and i feel frazzled. I could go back to bed and not get up until tomarrow. Bummed out!!
