Lucy and Marcie were curled up together this morning and this always brings a tear to my eye whenever I see them.
Although Marcie recovered very well, the illness left her slightly 'simple' and she now has what our vet describes as a 'vacant' look. She is totally happy and well but seems to be in her own little world some of the time!
When Marcie was finally well enough to go back in with all the other goats, I let her out and she immediately walked over to her sister. Lucy rubbed her head against her and then walked away. She somehow knew that Marcie was now slightly 'different' and couldn't quite come to terms with it. It took many weeks before she would accept her again but now they are back together and inseparable. Like I said - it brings a tear to my eye whenever I see them snuggled up together as I remember how we almost lost Marcie.
Remember Siouxsie? The goat who was having acupuncture? Well, she has finished her current course and although she still has problems with her food sticking in her cheek, she does seem to have put on a little weight and is doing well. She doesn't have a sister but curls up next to anyone who looks comfy! Here she is this morning curled up with one of the goatlings - totally different age group to Siouxsie but they obviously get along just fine.
And little Morgana who decided that it was worth checking if there was any food left in the wheelbarrow:
