Lost Him

I got through the cold okay, but the sick lamb didn't. After over two weeks of care and attention, books and advice, neighbors and vet suggestions I went to check on him today and he was gone. I carried his half-sized body down the hill and set him in the truck bed. Tomorrow I will take him out to be composted. I won't be eating meat from an animal I couldn't diagnose. It was a sad day. I think that's enough for tonight.
