What a difference a day can make. Last night I received the very sad news that my Chica had an accident and the tough decision of euthanasia had to be made.
She was still at Cal Poly. I visited her every week we were trying to get her re-bred as she has always had difficulty in getting pregnant.
It is believed that she was in heat and a bull mounted her and this caused her to break her leg.
She was down and not getting up. I was given the call and immediately wanted her suffering to end. Comfort is all we desire for our animals. So to think of prolonged suffering would be nothing but selfish.
I want to thank all of those at Cal Poly that took good care of Chica especially Rich Silacci, the herd manager. She had many friends and I will miss those stories of Chica that were told to me be the students.
She will be missed. I have many pictures and memories of her.
She was a big inspiration for my blog. This picture was from when I started blogging. It is my favorite one of her and I.
RIP my sweet Chica!
