I am sure you all know something passed but what you don't know is that RJ is crushed more so because it was Baby Curry. Our first beloved alpaca curled up and passed in his sleep sometime last night. I think RJ is taking it a bit harder as he was the one that found him. He called me at work and I came home to take care of things while he called Walnut Creek Ranch to see "what he did wrong." (His words not mine) Please remember Curry was two weeks premature and we have no way of knowing if that played a part in Curry's passing or not. You can check out his hard start here ....
No, is wasn't to cold for him last night.
Yes, Hope had plenty of Milk
No there are no weeds he could have gotten into.
Yes we had seen him nursing.
No he had no signs of sickness at all.
As you can tell, we have questioned everything but we have no answers. And with the death of a podcaster earlier this week with no warning, RJ is having trouble understanding "WHY" right now. Sometimes my mature little Man shows he is still a kid as it is easy to forget sometimes.
I layed Curry to rest right next to Statler, but not before I took a small clipping of his Fleece. Right now RJ wants nothing to do with the Fleece but he has mentioned from time to time with Statler that he wishes he had a bit of him left. I couldn't get much of a clipping and hold myself together for RJ, but I did get some to Spin up to put into something special for RJ.
With that I will close... Please say a prayer for a broken heart to heal and everything to be right with the world once again.
