One downside to selling goats is that sometimes you let go of ones that you later wish you had kept.
Such is the case with little Beatrix.
As you can see by her ears, she was Heidi's doeling, and while Beatrix was a sneaky little imp, I loved her.
But hay was needed, so she and her brother Bertram, became the sacrificial lambs, so to say, and had to be sold.
I regret that sale so much... She was a nice little goat.
