Tornado Hits Our Goat Family

Remember this beautiful sight a few weeks ago when I visited Ariel, Abi and Belle at their new farm? 
Well, of all the houses that received major damage from the tornado in Ligonier yesterday, it is the family that has this farm.

Read about their ordeal here:

Through the goat grapevine I got the news last night after Allison saw their home on the 10pm news broadcast. I turned on the telly just at 11pm to see that everyone was safe, but their restored historical home was without a roof, and their SUV now had two roofs. 

After an email to offer help was returned, Steve said the goats were out grazing afterwards like nothing had happened.  Meanwhile I hope their two young boys can carry on the same way after time passes.  They are counting on the goats to be a distraction. We are so glad to see everyone safe.
