This tiny goat, Thumbelina, did not make it through the arctic blast of the beginnings of winter. She was always the first one out of the barn to greet me with a welcoming call. On the morning when the temperature dropped to below zero we found her in the field just after sunrise. We think she came looking to escort us for the morning feeding and lost too much body heat. She has gone to warm green pastures to be with her friend Bunny. They both came from Mississippi and had never experienced severe cold like we had last week. She brought joy to so many and will be deeply missed.
