Sad Times on the Homestead

Most days on the homestead are pretty good. Every day is good for our animals. They are given the best we can give in food and sleeping quarters. We treat them like pets. So they live good lives.

We do have sad days from time to time. Over the past 2 or 3 weeks we had a sick buck. The buck, Jordan, had been doing good and suddenly began losing weight. Monday, August 26th, we really did everything we could for him. Nothing helped. On Tuesday morning he passed away. It was very sad.

Last week we also noticed Fred, our rooster, was struggling. He got really bad Saturday. Saturday evening he passed away. He was very old. We think he was 8 or 10 years old. He was a good rooster, very handsome and never mean to us.

So the past couple of weeks have had sad days here. I hope we don’t have anymore tragedies anytime soon. All our other animals seem to be doing well.

Until next time, have a healthy and blessed week!
