RIP PawPawNin Junior Mint

Last night we lost PawPawNin Junior Mint, our oldest MiniNubian buck and the buck that we've had for the longest, ever since he was a little kid. He was always a very reliable breeder, threw beautiful babies, was very well mannered, and never had a sick day in his life. He was getting up there in age, for a buck, and I guess since he had always been so "hyper", he wore himself out. I noticed this Fall that he was not being his normal self, come breeding season. He did not breed any does this year, as he really didn't want to. I gave him special treatment, and just within the last week he quickly went downhill and passed away last night. He will certainly be missed. In our herd he is survived by 1 half sister, 4 daughters, 1 granddaughter and 1 grandson.
