Now its been an horrendous week and I shan't be sorry to see the end of it and the end of January!!
Its always sad to loose any animal, and I find it hard to accept the loss of our little Zeus, not only for the time I had spent nursing him over the last 3 1/2 weeks and getting to know him, but also for the fact it is a big loss to our herd!
Zeus had been sired by a stud from outside our herd, and we had high hopes of him becoming our next Suri Stud Male and bringing new blood into our herd. So this has been both a emotional and financial loss! We will now to need to rethink future breeding plans.
Along with the loss of Zeus we feared the loss of our beloved little Jack Russel dog, Midgey.
