Candy Kiss

This is a tribute to Candy Kiss, our oldest goat who died today. I traded for her in 2004 when she was almost 8 years old because I loved her deep red color.

Only eight days later our buck Cody escaped when she was cycling and so 5 months after she arrived she produced triplets for us: Pixy Stix, Tootsie Roll, and Zotz.

She did not kid again until 2008 when she produced twins: Mars and Snickers.

She was then retired. Here she is teasing Cody in her retirement.

Her retirement was shorter than I had hoped, but her decline was brief and appeared painless.

I believe her life here was a good one, and I am glad I knew her.

    Thanks guys! She was beautiful and made gorgeous kids. I wished she had lived longer, but winters can be so hard on older animals.

    Thank you. She was the only red goat I have had. I wished she had made a red doeling for me to keep but the kids she made were awfully cute.
