The product of a hard work is always an enjoyable and a rewarding one, but not all of what we do that we think is good will last long.
I am referring to our stolen goats many years ago. It seems as if it was just yesterday when that incident happened. Perhaps the person who stole our goats was hungry and needed something to eat. But it made us wonder why all of our 16 goats were stolen.
My husband did not give up hope. On the week of June 14, 2021, he again started repairing the goat fence to try it for the second time and maybe this time, no harm will happen at the farm. On June 18, 2021, the goat fence was completed. Less than a week later, on June 23, 2021, approximately 100 feet of the chain link fence were stolen. Just imagine, the hard work of building the fence was gone overnight. My husband could not afford to repair and replace the stolen side of the fence with another chain link material, so he used tins instead. It looks so weird to see that almost the entire fence is made of chain link except for the stolen part at the entrance to the farm that is made of tin.
We are dismayed that someone will do such a thing to us again. If there is anyone out there has a grudge against us, please let us face each other so we can understand each other and be at peace.
To make the situation worse, on July 12, 2021, the biggest male (Toru) and the biggest female (Baka) goats were stolen. The goats are still adjusting to their new grazing area and here we already have two stolen ones.
The expenses we incurred for the fencing and the purchase of the goats were not that cheap. Like I said, not everything that we put to good use will last long because there are others that do not appreciate it. We concluded that the person that stole the chain link and the two goats wants to start his own goat farm. The intention is good but the acquisition is bad. All this person has to do is ask us and we will be more than glad to share. Not only did this person make us feel bad but even he will be guilty for the rest of his life. Whoever you are, please respect other’s properties. Turn to God, go to church and see the light of Christ.
