A Note From the Farmer



Baby Belle died this afternoon.

Thanks to everyone who read her blog and to everyone who wrote publicly and privately sending her good wishes and good thoughts.

I knew we would miss her right away. I did not know how much.

Oh, Baby Belle.

Oh, I am so terribly sorry. Can I have loved her having never met her, scratched her right behind the shoulder blades, fed her cookies?

Belle was the reason I got my Dottie, she looks so like her.

I'll miss her too. She was loved.

Blessings,
Lisa

I am so very sorry for your loss. I have little Nigerians here in Wisconsin and I so enjoyed reading about Belle. My thoughts are with you.

Cathy said...

Oh, how our heart grieves for you. It is so hard to loose a friend like that. They are just a bit more than the other animals on the farm.
Please know how much she brightened our lives through her blog about life the farm.

I have no words. There are no words adequate. Peanuts and the biggest of hugs and head butts to the farmer and Lori.

I am so very sorry for the loss of Baby Belle. I just found your blog and it was nice to have another goat blogger out here. Goat hugs to the family....

Oh, Baby Belle.....
I'm so sorry. You have been such a delight to "know" and all my thoughts and hugs go to your loving humans whom you've left behind. I know the pain they must be feeling right now.
Hugs from Oregon.

Oh my God, I am so sorry. I didn't know it would happen so quickly. I think losing our cherished animals is by far the hardest part of farming...and yet life wouldn't be the same without having those animals in it.

Blessings, Farmers...she was a wonderful herd member and friend. Hugs to you and the remaining herd.

sunshine is sad to see Belle go. My sincerest wishes for gentleness and peace to the Farmer and Lori.

What a life Belle had! A voice. A way of seeing and communicating the things that matter-- hurray for the goatly perspective.

I am so terribly sorry for your loss. I have loved reading Baby Belle's blog over the last several years but rarely leave comments. Baby Belle had a good, good life with you. Does Baby Belle have kids that can continue the blog? It's delightful to read. Wishing you all the best.

I'm so sorry! I raise Nigerian Dwarves that I show, and I love each and every one of them. I know how hard it is to lose one of them.

Baby Belle will always hold a warm place in my heart. It is always so hard to lose a sweet dear animal. I now call my little Sasha "Sasha Belle" in her honor. I will miss your Belle very much and I was lucky to have known her through this blog. Thank you for sharing her with us all.

Oh no...we just read the news of Baby Belle this morning and just cannot believe it. We are in tears writing this and want you to know how very sorry we all are to hear that she is gone. Her posts brought so many of us laughter and joy and she will be dearly missed.

You are our good friends and when you are feeling sorrowful, so too are we.

Love, Chris, Dave, Smidgey and Me.

I am SO SAD! I stumbled across this blog accidentally a year or so ago and have been a loyal reader ever since. Baby Belle is practically the only animal in the world that I like (seriously, I am NOT an animal fan). I wanted to come to your farm and meet her one day. *sniff, sniff*

I haven't checked this blog since the beginning of June when Inky and Shaq were introduced.

It's a slow afternoon at the office and I thought I'd check...am very sad to hear of Baby Belle's passing. But I am glad she has a very worthy and very beautiful successor.

i was so sad to read this. i discovered this blog on thursday (4/15/2010) and started reading from the beginning. because silver belle is the author, i figured that "something" happened to baby belle, but i was still shed tears for baby belle. she was smart and funny, and had a magnificent snowy beard. belated condolences from urban texas.
