Rosie comes back inside



Let me tell you about our night. I expected to worry. There was no way around it. 

At bedtime, I got my coat and a light and started out to the barn one last time to make sure Rosie was okay. Well her pitiful crying could be heard as soon as I opened the front door. It broke my heart. She had come out of the barn and was standing at the fence alone in the cold dark night.

I didn't walk, I ran to pick her up. Of all the snuggling and cuddling...she could not get close enough...rubbing her little cold nose on my neck and nuzzling my ear.

We came inside and heated a bottle of milk. She was hungry. She snuggled in my arms for a quite some time. I then brought the carrier back in, fixed her bed, put her inside with her stuffed dog, and she went fast asleep. Not another peep was heard.

The picture is from this morning when Poppy and I were making some changes to the teeny tiny barn. We put a door on the enclosed part of the barn. Tonight Rosie will sleep in the carrier with a warm bed and her stuffed dog...just like she had in here with us...except the carrier will be in the barn with Asa. I also plan to feed her a bottle of warm milk at 10:00, before we all go to sleep.

Just had to show you this little video. Poppy was fixing the latch on the carrier...at least he was trying to fix the latch...

Thank you for stopping by. I promise not to go on and on about this. :)

Love,
Henny

Okay, I have tried twice and the video will not load...and it is so cute! Guess I'll try again tomorrow. :(

  2. Glad to get this Rosie report. It's hard being a baby goat without your mother. Could she have a hot water bottle or perhaps a heating pad in that cold barn?

  3. Oh poor Rosie! And no apologies are needed for going on about Rosie. We all love to hear about her. Hopefully you are able to download the video. I have the same trouble!

  4. I hope Rosie ( love her name) has a better night tonight. That carrier will be a familiar bed so she should be okay. I do hope you get the video to work ( I sure wouldn't have a clue how to do it, that's for sure).

  7. Awww! Rosie is so sweet. Does her pen have to go back outside. Can't she stay indoors just at night? I know, I know. She is a goat! Hope she does well. Nancy

  9. I wondered if you'd be able to leave her out there. Looks like you've got a better plan now.

  10. Oh how sweet! I imagine it is hard to hear her crying. I bet she will adjust quickly- she is probably just missing you.

  11. Oh, I'm so glad you posted about Rosie. I came back especially to see if there was any more to come. Good you checked on Rosie and made some changes. Sounds as though she will be a lot more comfortable and in a familiar situation as well. The bottle of milk before bed should be a big help too .

  12. It's really hard for these little critters when people have been imprinted on their brain. they think they're a person.

  13. Great way to fix Rosie's loneliness problem.
    Gail has done videos. They are a pain for me, too; but she can probably help you out.

  14. Oh, I would have run just as fast as you to retrieve her. Poor little gal. I guess it will take time for her to realize she is a goat. Hope tonight goes better for her. And you. ;-)

  21. I have been missing in blog land for several weeks! I see you have a new baby! I hope she gets settled :O).
    Lots going on here is the reason for no time to blog. Not bad stuff, but so busy I can't seem to dig my way out right now.

  22. Could she maybe be a house goat? I know, that's pretty silly!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, dear, poor baby! I would have done exactly the same as you. Have you thought about joining her in the goat barn at night? Just kidding!

    Love you,
