Due to the intense vulgar, crude, vicious negativity on my personal email account regarding this post, the post has been removed.
I am sorry for having to delete an article that was based on fact, and research not only by me, but by countless others who’s names were credited at the end of the article. To them, I offer my personal thanks for keeping my herd alive and well, and to those who have had issues in their own flocks, my only advice is to use a livestock qualified veterinarian to either treat your animals before it is too late to do so, or spend the money to have a necropsy done so that you don’t dwell on supposition that may or may not be fact. When a farmer takes on raising livestock, they are obligated to provide the best of care to those animals. They are living, breathing beings who fill our hearts and our pastures giving us food, financial security and enjoyment in the process. We do at our farm, costly as it may be, to ensure that our herds and flocks are well fed, well housed, and cared for with the same compassion and concern as we would have for ourselves.
Unforeseen things happen, but one simply cannot blame a writer who has shared their time and resources, for misfortune that they themselves encounter. There is no blame and there should not be harsh words to another person, period…for anything…ever.
With that, when I have time to return to blogging, uplifting, constructive and pleasantry is always appreciated. If that can’t be the case, since this world is so full of hate, please don’t bother to send negativity, vulgarity or crudeness. Instead, I will pray for you as those comments cannot and will not be published.
