Tyler - male goat - 5 years old - born at SFC when his mother Snowflake was retired here- died of kidney stones and complications. He reveled in his time with his new horse friends, especially his neighboring mare Tina. She has had four foals. Their mother, Angel, came to SFC already pregnant and gave birth to them the following spring. Deelight is a lot like her mother Deeteza, both in looks and personality. A' leavin behind all that wreckage and riot.
The Ghost Herd of Horses and Farm Animals
She let us know when it was time to move on and we all were with her as she passed and rejoined her best friend Chops who had preceded her several months before. A real rarity for founder cases, Chubby actually sloughed both front feet and grew new hooves in. The white mules, in a panic, Figured they would go as well. It was wonderful to watch them care for him the way that they did. The cougar was just checking them out and after yards or so the cat went it's own way. First ride went great, second he runs off with me and I chose to bail and save myself in a safe spot, shouldn't have done that but I learned. However, she lived another 3 years, enjoying life to the fullest.
The Spring Farm CARES Ghost Herd
She's mostly retired now, but still gets out once in a while at 28 years old. We were honored to have him spend the rest of his days with us in very honorable retirement. Luckily, that ended up being temporary, and her heart healed up fine but her possible career as a race horse was ruined. I'm wantin' new rules! We get along and have no problems with each other. Even the best ones will do little things like waiting till you're not paying attention and finding low branch for you to ride into or spooking at the end of a cut log. My point to this is with mules you need to set a goal and achieve it every time.
Sadly Topaz died suddenly when was running and tripped and fell into a corner post and suffered a catastrophic injury that left him unable to get up. Leave your trailer at home. Corrie was a perfectly healthy young llama when he came to the farm to be a companion to Gulliver. Any suggestions on where to buy a fully saddle mule. Echo was born blind in one eye and with a neurological defecit that caused her to have a wobbly gait.
