    Assuming she was well cared for, why would you blame yourself??? Sometimes these things just happen. I'm sorry you had to start your Monday morning this way, and sorry about the loss of girl... [​IMG]

    Awww. I'm sorry for her loss.

    I lost a baby goat to the cold temps yesterday and even though its an Act of God/Nature, I still wonder what I should have done to prevent it too.

    Im so sorry for your loss! Sounds like what ever took her worked quick and at least she didn;t suffer a bunch!

    I hope things get better.

    she may not have been broody, maybe she was just not feeling well and laying low where she wouldn't be picked on and just looked like a broody. Don't feel bad, there wasn't any way for you to tell if she was not having diarreah, sneezing, head shaking or other signs... Hopefully it was an isolated incident. [​IMG]
