Just this side of heaven is a place
called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
Happy Tailz Glittering Sunset
Sadly we lost our Sunny on March 3rd, 2008. She will be a much missed doe around here but she will be forever in our hearts. She was our first adult doe that we have ever lost and it hurt us all tremendously!
MCH Happy Tailz Holiday Surprize
Surprize is chocolate with beige moon spots and a light sprinkling of frosting on her ears and beautiful blue eyes. This beautiful little doe just oozes dairy character. As Harvey Considine once said after judging her at the Wisconsin show "she has dairy character to spare". She has soft pliable skin, nice open ribbing and a nice top line though this photo doesn't show it and has a very friendly, laid back temperament. Her udder has nice capacity, easy milking teats, nice division of halves and a beautiful smooth for udder. What I would like to change is a higher rear udder which would bring her teats more plum. Prize's age is starting to show so I have decided to retire her from making beautiful babies and just be a much loved doe around here. UPDATE: My precious Prizie is now romping and playing at Rainbow Bridge.
