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.
