Honeymoon Suite, Revisited
Saturday was a beautiful day in the Pacific Northwest. The perfect day to give Lexi a ride back over to the honeymoon suite when it was apparent she needed to visit her beloved one more time. Lexi and Semi-Sweet being what you would call "mature" are having a difficult time getting settled.
Back over we went. But this time Lexi knew the drill. She jumped quite willingly into the back of the jeep, sang along with me to the radio, jumped out when we got there and led me over to the suite. She was so happy to see Captain again that if I didn't believe before in goat love I do now. She talked up a blue streak to him. It was all so gentle and loving it made me a little sad. What she said we will never know but she was really giving him a talking too.
"After last time you never called."
"Let's run away together."
"The other does don't appreciate you like I do."
She was clearly in love and didn't want to leave.
As I gently led her away, I told her he could never be faithful and that this would be her last trip to the honeymoon suite. She has been bred three times by two different bucks so if it didn't take this time she would remain childless.
I think she's fine with that.
