This week we said goodbye to one of our beloved pets, Petunia. Petunia came to our farm shortly after we purchased it in 2010. Her and her brother were taken in as retired 4-H goats that were no longer wanted by their original owners as their children were grown. Petunia was loud, demanding, and bull headed. Her attitude always kept us laughing, and we missed her right away as the barn lacks her distinct “meh”. She enjoyed going with me for walks and her favorite snack was dried leaves in the fall. We’ve estimated her age at 15-17 years, a nice length for pygmy goats. Petunia left us peacefully in her sleep after a great life of love. Goodbye Petunia.
