ALIVE, GONE, NEVER FORGOTTEN
Remember when our first baby goat was born? If not, click HERE to read his birth announcement from July 24, 2010.
TK grew into a Billy Goat Gruff and sometimes he thought I might be one of the trolls under the bridge. In other words our 16 month old boy had grown into a bully billy. He did sire two precious sons, Dr. Cole and Lord Voldemort during his time with us. ( These boys were neutered as soon as possible). Yesterday TK's life with us ended.
There goes TK in the cage in the back of that truck. He was calling for help from his harem and they were calling back. It was not a pretty site. Part of me was very happy to have found him a new home while the other part of me was sad to see this member of our family leave. However, just like our rooster Jack Bauer, TK is off to greener pastures meaning more ladies for his primary calling in life.
My tears were quickly wiped away as I took a moment to ponder my bruises. This made his departure a little easier.
For your added viewing amazement, here is a wonderful painting Holland aka Monique Lassooij did of TK as a baby. Indeed a life long treasure from a phenomenal artist.
