To Mary Faye,


I didn’t even know enough to ask the lady how old you were that day I brought you home in my van all those years ago.

So, I don't know how old you were when you patiently let me learn how to milk a goat.

I don't know how old you were when you became Herd Queen and whipped my other goats into a proper herd of milking ladies.


I don't know how old you were, when you nearly bled to death after trying to protect the others from the big dog that was attacking your herd.

I don't know how old you when you stole that baby from a new mother because you didn't have one of your own that year.


I don't know how old you were when you helped me understand that getting older doesn’t mean you’re not still beautiful.

I don’t know how old you were when you abdicated your crown to a younger Herd Queen.


I don't know how old you were when you lost your teeth or had to start taking pain meds everyday so your arthritis didn't hurt so much.


I don't know how old you were when you couldn't get up anymore and I knew it was time.


I may not know how old you were, but I know there will never be another goat like you and I loved you very much.

 

Thank you, old friend.

Granny

The oldest goat in the world? Maybe, but she's a real joy! She can't be in with the rest of the goats anymore as she is too feeble, so she is Queen of the rest of the place. She is free to roam the place and welcomes all the milk customers and kids that come around. She's quite the lady!
