RIP Zoe Marie

8 07 2010

Yesterday morning between 7:15 and 7:30 a.m., we lost our beloved Zoe to listeriosis. She was sick for five long, heartbreaking days. Most goats only last about three, but my Zoe was a fighter. She fought with everything she had until the very end.

Zoe was very special to us. She was very even tempered and rarely upset by anything. She loved people and children. She tolerated the outside cats. She loved to be hand-fed bananas and maple branches. She would fight the other goats for a patch of clover. She was Boss Goat among her herd of five wethered offspring and her cranky mate, our buck named Frank.

My Zoe tolerated zero nonsense. She kept her boys in check and made Frank walk the line. She was the best mother goat I’d ever heard of, never needing assistance with her kids, always keeping a watchful eye on them, even long after they were weaned. No one dared to bother her babies while she was around.

I couldn’t have asked for a better goat than Zoe Marie Presley. She was my dainty lady. We will all miss her presence, but she’s moved on to a better place.
