Two weeks ago: we got a late night emergency call and plea for goats colostrum and milk. A foal was born and wasn’t eating, wasn’t taking any of the formulas, and the vet said there wasn’t any hope for it.
A friend, of a friend, of a friend told them about our farm and they rushed over. We gave them the last of the colostrum we had and hurried them on their way. From the moment of the call to the moment I fell asleep I prayed for that little foal and for their hands working on her.
They were strangers, who came in the middle of the night. I was hoping to hear if the little one had lived but never got a call.
(Colostrum is a thick, sticky, vitamin packed pre-milk that every mamma gives for the first three days after giving birth. We try to save some from every goat we have just in case there would be an emergency.)
Last night: We have been calling farms all over NE and IA to get more alfalfa for our goats. After 3 days and still no hay Anthony pulled one more number off of Craigslist.
When we arrived at the farm, there were a number of horses and a little foal in a round pen. The man did not seem familiar but something in my spirit said, ASK. So out of the blue I asked if a couple of weeks ago they had bought goats milk for a foal.
The man jumped back! Paused, blown away that I would know that. It was the same people who had come for the milk!! And the baby had survived!!! Both of us were close to tears and they shared the whole story.
I can’t wait to go back for hay and watch the little one, who they named June Bug, grow. More to this than I can share but to sum it up God is good, all the time! We were able to bless them and they were a blessing to us.
Proverbs 3:5-6 reminds us:
Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.
So much hope and peace flows daily knowing that our family is never walking alone or without purpose.
Do you know Jesus and have this same hope? If you want to know more we are always open to share, just ask. ❤️
