Chiyoko and Nakoa Leave Gullringstorp Today


Today was a difficult day for us at Gullringstorp. While accessing the direction we want to go with our little herd, we made the decision to sell these two junior does. It was by no means an easy decision. My husband and I have discussed this at length, and decided that they no longer fit into our breeding program for our herd. We have been so happy and delighted with the Pygmy goats that we would like to add more to our herd and have them bred here at Gullringstorp. All the other  Senior does and Junior does have a connection to each other either by birth or having arrived together at Gullringstorp. Chiyoko and her sister Nakoa have each other and I am so happy to say that we waited it out for a family who wanted both of them. we did not want to sell them separately. It was very important that they be re-homed, together.

The sisters’ flat mate Nanna,  will have some adjusting to do. She is already showing signs of a slight depression; that was expected. Nanna will either be moved to the box at the front of the stable to join our newest little members, Iris, Ivy and Petunia, or move in with Alika and Keriana. The decision has not been made yet. We will take our cue from Nanna.

So today, November 17, 2011 Chiyoko and Nakoa leave Gullringstorp to go to their new home in the south of Sweden.

As my little girls leave for their new home, I feel sad yet at the same time very happy for them to be leaving together and to be going to a new loving  family. We couldn't have asked for more.

A look back on Chiyoko and Nakoa at Gullringstorp:
