No Size

No picture for this, since it would be depressing. The vet came out today and confirmed that No Size does have a spinal cord injury. We are going to put him out of his misery. Chances of him recovering are pretty slim. He has been an awesome herd sire and I am so glad that he has given me gorgeous offspring to carry on his line. I will probably talk about him forever - he was such a bargain and so good.

Someone mentioned that his problem could be disease related. I did not think so, but it stayed in the back of my mind because I did not want other animals to become infected. The vet said that my animals look very healthy.

Sorry about your loss...I will miss seeing him and giving him an update on one of his bucks Sampson. I hope that Sampson can live up to his fathers fiber....and be a great sire for my herd like No. Size was to yours. I liked No. Size....his horns were big and he was big...maybe we can keep his blood line with some of the kids he sired. It's just a shame when things like this happen....if you need anything let me know. Chris

Aw, I'm sorry to hear about No Size! Don't feel so bad - you are helping him by keeping him away from pain and suffering.
