Goodbye, Sunshine

You can know something sad is coming, but that doesn't make it any less sad when it comes.

Valley View Hannah's Marquee died last night.

We could say a lot about his conformation and his dairy character and his champion daughters.

But right now all we can think about is his unbelievably endearing disposition, how he loved the summer, how kind he was, and how lucky we were to have him. If you have a Nigerian or a mini from our farm, and your goat is sweet and smart and funny, we can tell you without looking at the papers that your goat is related to Marquee.

Goodbye, Sunshine.
