Pretty leaves and Baby Goat update

Finally! Fall colors!



First I want to tell you that Shae (Baby Goat) is back home and seems to be getting better. On Saturday, the vet did an x-ray, gave her fluids with B vitamins, and an antibiotic injection that lasts four days. He also did blood work and another fecal exam. Today I am waiting to hear the results.


The Vet thinks her sickness may have been caused by something in the grasses and weeds the goats ate. He says wild onions can make them sick. The old saying that a goat can eat anything is a myth. The Vet also says it could be her age, she is seven, not a baby anymore.


I was seriously beginning to think the fall colors had passed us by. We have had mostly brown dead leaves falling. 



But all of a sudden it's looking like fall.




There is just something about the sun shinning through the gold and red leaves, with all the orange and pink shades, that warms my heart...I simply love it! Looks like we've got lots of red berries this year too, the Holly trees and the Dogwoods.

Need to sew tonight. Just wanted to post a little update on my sweet little goat. Thank you all for the nice comments and well wishes for Shae.

Love,
Henny

  2. Hope Shae gets all better soon! We had a goat once, he ate everything in sight! We have no leaves left in the trees here, all our color is in shrubs that are fading fast. Enjoy your pretty colors! :)

    1. Thank you. One thing the vet asked was if the goat had been eating Azaleas. The pretty colors don't last long.

  3. It's good to hear that Shae is on the road to recovery. Fall has arrived here as well. The color has been especially nice this year----all the spring rain that we had I think. The last several windy days have brought down tons of pine needles as well as many, many, many leaves. Siiiiiigh raking is definitely in my future. I bet it's in your future also. Inevitable.

    1. Oh I can't believe how soon I will be struggling to rake up all these leaves! I see lots of work in the near future! The leaves sure are pretty right now though, aren't they?

  6. Just wanted to say that it is good news that Shae is doing better, and that the colors of fall have begun to show. Can't help but reflect on the year almost spent, and the nice people that we have been able to communicate with. You and your readers are a special bunch! Love keeping in touch.

    1. Thank you Pam! You are right about the nice people out there. I love my blogging friends and appreciate you all so much...Best friends I've ever had! Pam, Lynn told me about the package you sent. She is excited and appreciates it so much! Thank you for doing that. I'm hoping her little shop is a big hit.

  8. I am so happy that Shae is on the mend, goats are such endearing little characters. The fall pictures are just lovely, that last one would make a heavenly fabric pattern. My fingers would be itching to make curtains, cushions and quilts.

    I thought the myth that goats could eat anything was true. Thanks for clearing that up.

  16. Hi! I came by to return the blog visit and thank you for taking time to leave such a nice comment on mine. Your fall photos are beautiful. I had to go and read about your little goat. So glad she's better. It's really hard when they're sick and we can't fix it right away.

  17. I'm so glad Shae is feeling better. I wouldn't think that 7 is very old for a goat is it? Aren't the leaves lovely with the sun shining on them. I think we are heading into a rainy stretch now, but we've had a few lovely sunny days. I love the light at this time of the year.
