Winter is a hard time for the animals too. They use lots of energy to keep warm.
Very sad news.....Skippety died....and we have no idea WHY? He had been going great, he was really starting to grow. He was always first to the milk bar and loved to munch on hay. I wonder whether he was a bit too greedy and got a really big tummy ache!
We buried Skippety out in the paddock next to Princess Fiona, they will be together now.
Sometimes animals get sick or hurt, most of the time they get better again, BUT sometimes they are so hurt or so sick that they die, they can no longer stay alive. Mum says this can happen when they are young or old or anywhere in between. It is sad but it is the way things are and it is true for everything that is alive.
