R.I.P. Rufus


Rufus was my grade buck with horns who ended up losing his life, saving the three registered bucks who didn't have horns. Rufus was attacked by my sister's dogs one night while we were all gone, and I came home to her dogs breaking through two fences and over a six foot high electrified fence to get in with the goats. The other three bucks had only minor scratches, but Rufus looked liked hamburger. He died 7 days after the awful night due to secondary infections and/or the trama and stress brought on by the attack. He was the sire of many fine babies the last two years and it was truly a shame to lose him this way. He would have made a fine herdsire elsewhere. RIP you goofy guy!
