Anna & Alan: I'm so sorry about little C-Biscuit. Darn it, I shed a tear and I know your hearts must be full to overflowing with sadness. You'll remember her sweetly and go on to give the love you had stored up for her to another of your critters. Take care. The farm is such an adventure in life and I love that you share it with all of us.

I'm so sorry to hear about C-Biscut! I was really praying that she would be okay. She was a beautiful animal. Sorry for your loss.

I'm so terribly sorry Anna & Alan.

I've never written to a blog before, but I had to send my condolences. I don't know what it is about animals, but they worm their way into my heart like nothing else can. I felt a connection to your little donkey and I'm very sad to hear of her passing.

Farmers are special people - you're in my thoughts.

awww, i'm so sorry to hear about c-biscuit. truly. i love hearing about your farm and seeing all the great pics. big hugs!!!

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of C-biscuit. My partner and I just went through the same thing with our Australian Shepherd Chelsea. Came home to find her very ill. Took her to two vets but ultimately we had to have her put to sleep. They guessed it was a tumor on her heart that burst. I am so very sorry for your loss. Hugs to you and your husband.

Dear Anna & Alan,
I'm so sorry to hear that you lost C-biscuit. I was afraid that would be the outcome when I first read that her mother had rejected her, and then to read Alan's post. She was just a baby that really needed her mother. I know we don't have any guarantee of tomorrow - either for our beloved pets or for ourselves - but our lives are so enriched by the animals we surround ourselves with. God bless both of you for the gentle loving care you give His creatures and for certainly going the extra mile for that sweet baby donkey. I so enjoy your blog and the beautiful pictures of your animals.
Ann C.

It was as if momma knew something bad was wrong? I have seen other creatures do the same growing up on the farm of my grandparents. She was and will remain a beaut-captured in your photographs.

How sad. Poor Wight family and animals. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I was so sad to read the news about C-Biscuit. Thank you for sharing your farm news with us.

I'm so sorry to hear about C-biscuit. She sure was a little cutie. She was certainly loved by many.

I am SO sorry to hear about C-biscuit! I know that you tried everything you could to help her out, but unfortunately, sometimes God has other plans.

Take care and God Bless!

Dear Anna and Alan,
I am SO sorry to hear about C~Biscuit...I was so hoping the news would be happy.... What a sad thing to happen but C~Biscuit sure was lucky to have you 2!

I am so sorry to hear this. My thoughts are with you.

How very sad to hear about little C-biscuit. She was a beautiful little creature and I'm sure felt the love you both gave her during her short lifetime. Raising animals must be as heartbreaking at times as it is rewarding. Thank you for sharing them with us in such a beautiful and meaningful way. My heart goes out to you both for your loss.

I was really dreading reading this sad news about C-Biscuit, Anna. It's wonderful how you both tried so hard to help her. Animals do teach us a lot, if we will only pay attention. Linda

I'm so sorry to hear about C-biscuit. You took such good care of her during her short life.

Oh Anna and Alan, I'm sooooo sorry!! {{{hugs}}} to you both. I guess Muffin knew best...? :(

Oh my gosh. I've never cried over a donkey before but here I am with tears running down my face. I am so sorry to hear about C-Biscuit. My heart goes out to you both. You are such loving owners/parents to all of your animals. You are both in my thoughts and prayers.



Anna and Alan, I am so sorry to learn of the loss of that beautiful little baby, C-Biscuit. You gave her such wonderful love and nurturing during her much-too-short time with you. We all shared that love and concern. My deepest sympathies to you both, and to poor Muffin, who missed out on the joy of caring for her baby and seeing her flourish. Thank you, Alan, for taking over the difficult task of letting all of us know the sad news. I can well imagine that it was more than Anna could bear. Hugs to you both! Judie

Oh...my heart is heavy. I was just sick to hear about C-Biscuit....I could just cry. It is so easy to get attached to your animals. I see their cute pictures and they become like little people...I'm so very very sorry!! I agree, Muffin doesn't deserve to have another!

It's reare to know such animal lovers as you two. I am so impressed at the lenghts you went to to save this baby and am so sorry for your loss. What love C-biscuit knew in her short life!

Anna & Alan, So sorry to hear about sweet precious c-biscuit, thanks for sharing her with us, it was heartwarming see to all you did for her. God Bless

Oh, Anna! This is horrible! That poor little Biscuit! :((((( I guess there is just so much you can do and you did it all. She'll be remembered.
With sympathy

Dear Anna and Alan,

Much sympathy and many hugs from us here in Canada. Very sorry to hear you lost your dear little critter. Our thoughts are with you.

Lisa Pownall & Family

Oh Anna and Alan.....
I have a knot in my throat and tears in my eyes. You have to know that you did all that you could do and C-Biscuit is in a better place. Please know that my thoughts are with you.

Oh I am so sorry.

Dear Anna and Alan,
My heart aches for your loss. Having lost our sweet old dog back in January, I know that it can take a long time to heal. But know this, that we mourn only for our own loss, and not for death itself. Little C-Biscuit is in a better, brighter place than we are. She is with a loving Heavenly Father who will care for her until she can be re-united with her earthly "family". We all love you and pray that you will feel comfort as the days pass.
Hugs to you both,
Kathryn Whittaker in Utah

I am so sorry to hear about C-Buscuit. I was so hoping that all of the hard work you were putting in for that little donkey would be enough. I know you did everything you could and that was so much more than some would have even considered doing for her. You truely are special people and C-Buscuit was lucky to have you for the short time that she was here. -Molly B

Oh, how sad. You certainly gave C-biscuit your best.

She may not have lived long, but she was beautiful while she lived. And both you and Alan did a wonderful and loving job of caring for her. So sorry for all of you. Love and prayers, Shellie

Oh Anna and Alan, I'm so very sorry to hear the news about C-Biscuit. I was hoping the dear little baby would pull through. I'm sending you big cyber hugs.

- Sherry


I'm so very sorry to hear your sad news. Many hugs to you and Alan.

I am so sorry for you both. C-Biscuit will be fondly remembered by all your blog readers. BIG HUGS to you both and C-Biscuit is happily playing over on the other side of Rainbow Bridge and will greet you one day. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you.

I guess God need another little donkey in Heaven - I am so sorry for your loss and ours- we had all hoped to see her pull through this It must be so hard for you all - I know it's part of farm-life and she was a real beauty! You can rest assured your valliant efforts will not go unnoticed - and you gave C-Biscuit a wonderful few precious days.

Sorry to read the sad news about C-Biscuit. It's hard to accept when animals fail to thrive in spite of all our efforts. You and Allen did all that you could do for her.

Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your precious baby, C-bisquit. My thoughts and prayers are with both of you.

I'm so sorry for your loss. C-Biscuit was so precious and you tried so hard to save her. My heart hurts for you.

My heart goes out to you both. I know you were both so attached to this little one...

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It is heartbreaking for me and I only knew C-Biscuit through your blog. Just know that you did everything you could to care for her and save her. You are such kind and compassionate folks. Please know I am thinking of you and praying for you during this difficult time. ((((((hugs)))))) ~Melissa

I am so sorry that C-Biscuit did not pull through. I'm sure she is running through the fields of heaven with fond memories of her two caregivers. My thoughts and prayers are with ya'll.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It seems we get extra close to the ones who need that extra care and that makes the loss even more profound. I hope Muffin gets better as well. I'll keep you all in my prayers.

Alan and Anna, I'm sorry to hear that C-biscuit is gone...I had dogs, bunnies, turtles, and a horse growing up and know that the animals become part of the family. They have their own personalities and a bond with you.

Sending warm thoughts and hugs from IL.

Take care...

I am so very sorry you lost your sweet baby. You must be heart broken after giving her 24 hour care and doing your best to give her a chance. I write with tears in my eyes for your loss. Ann

So sad about Sea Biscuit. My sympathy to all of you. Your blog is one of my favorites and following the progress of the animals is so much fun, however, when something tragic like this happens please know that we all feel the pain. Hugs.

I am so sorry to hear about C-Biscuit. I so enjoyed the photos of her. She was so adorable. I just started crying when I read this. It is so hard to say goodbye to our beloved animals. My heart goes out to you both.

My most caring thoughts are with you, and my total sympathy, too...BIG CYBER HUGS to you both. You are the best animal parents on the planet!

Alan and Anna
I'm so sad to read your post today..
I was following C-biscuit story. What a sweetheart!
You are both awesome people who care so much for your farm and animals.
God bless you both.

I have to say Alan and Anna, that I suspected something was wrong with Muffin's reaction to the baby. Nature can seem so cruel to our civilized human sensibilities.

I'm so sorry you lost little C-biscuit. She was an adorable little thing. Having grown up on a farm myself, I know how it hurts to lose something you work so hard to save. I cried over many a loss as a child. Hugs to you both.


Little C-biscuit touched all our hearts and
you gave her all your love. Nothing can be more precious than that. Hugs, Norma

I'm so sorry Alan and Anna! I know you will miss sweet little C-Biscuit. You did everything you possibly could for her and can know for certain that she was loved and got good TLC during her short little life. Big hugs to you both.

My thoughts & prayers are with you all. So sorry to hear this sad news.

Anna and Alan, I am so sorry to hear about little C-Biscuit. At least she knew she was loved while she was here on Earth and you both did the very best you could for her.

I'm so sorry Alan and Anna, I loved that little C-Biscuit too, she was a sweet girl. Sending you both hugs.


Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of little C-Biscuit. Tears shed for you and her as well. She was loved by both you and Alan and that is what matters now. Big Hugs to all.

I am soooooo very sorry to hear about C-Biscuit. She was such an adorable little thing. It brings tears to my eyes. My heart goes out to you this day.

How sad :(
That had to have been so hard for the both of you, I'm so sorry to hear of C-Biscuits passing. Big {{{Hugs}}} going out to you.
I know that all of the animals on your farm are like your family.
Take care.

thank you so much for sharing c-biscuit's short life with us. God needed her more in the big pasture in the sky and she is probably kicking up her heels right now. Love to you both and all your critters...

Anna and Alan - I'm so sorry. C-Biscuit was such a sweet little donkey, even if I 'knew' her only through your words and pictures.

Sending my thoughts and prayers along with all of your loyal blog readers....losing a loved one is so hard, even if they have only been in your hearts for a short time. She was so lucky to have been born at your house, so that her short time was at least filled with all of the love that you could give her. Words fail to help, I know, but we are all with you and Alan and she is running wild and free, kicking up her baby heels in a green pasture right now and thanking you for all that you did for her.


Oh, no, Alan & Anna. I am so sad for you and so sorry to hear this news. You are in our thoughts and prayers for sure and I'm sending a huge hug to you both. I wish I could give it to you in person.

I Sit in tears for you guys. What a cutie... So sad for you. Thank you for posting such wonderful pictures for us, and I am glad that you will have these to look at and remember her.

Thank you, Alan, for letting us know. I'm so sorry to hear about C-Biscuit. Hugs to you both.

My thoughts and prayers are with you both - what a sad loss for your family.

Oh guys....I'm SOOO sorry for your loss. I'm sitting here in tears because, though I LOVE your artwork, I'm MORE in love with all your animals that you've shared with us through your wonderful photography and descriptions. Thank you for sharing the joys and the losses....they touch me equally.

Rest in Peace, C-Biscuit..


I am so sorry to hear about c-biscuit..........my heart goes out to you and Alan................



My heart is breaking for you both. I am so sorry to hear about you sweet little one. You gave her lots of love and a very wonderful life while she was here. I know she will be able to prance and play and look down on you with grateful eyes. You are both in my thoughts and prayers. Janet Marks in NC

I'm so sorry to hear about your baby C-Biscuit! You worked so hard for her and we prayed so hard! It breaks my heart!

I am so sorry about baby C-biscuit. That was the sweetest baby donkey. You guys are incredibly caring with your animals that I know you did the best that you possibly could but I am sure it does not make the pain any easier. I am really, really sorry.

Oh No! My daughter and I were checking in this morning, looking for good mews. So sorry! You are such sweet, kind people to make her more comfortable in her last hours!

Rest in Peace C-Biscuit.

I guess I read your post too late last night. I didn't realize that she had already passed away. I hope you and Anna are doing okay. Death is such a hard thing to deal with.
a few tear, and prayers.

Anna and Alan, So sorry to hear the news about C-biscuit. My thoughts and prayers are with you both.

sending out big cyber hugs to the both of you! I am so very, very sorry............

she was so special to so many of us as crazy as it sounds. you are in our hearts, our thoughts, and our prayers.

Dear Anna and Alan, I know you must be heart broken about loosing C-biscuit. You did your best to care for her since Muffin couldn't meet the task. I am so sorry. I look forward to every new article you write, Anna, involving the farm, the animals and especially the baby news. Please know that if I were there I would give you a motherly hug to let you know how much I care.

I am so sad as I read this. Animals are so special, and c-biscuit is no exception. You and Alan are so gifted in your love and care of your love and care of your extended family. I am sure c-biscuit was well aware of your love and concern, and is now greeting all of our friends in heaven.

aw... hugs for you both.

Hello, oh how very sad. She looked beautiful from the outset and perhaps too beautiful for our world as it currently stands. I have asked my Ben and Shy, who are at Rainbow Bridge to go make her welcome and give her loads of love and hugs.
Well done to you and your partner for doing the best you could.
I love reading about your life on your farm, the ups the downs - everything because that is real life. I love your photos - you are a very talented lady.
Big hug to you all
Jackie Warwickshire UK

I am just heart broken to hear of C-Biscuit's passing. You and Alan are both in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so very sorry for your loss of C-Biscuit!! I absolutely loved her from the very first moment I saw her. I wish I was there to say goodbye in person. Please know that my thoughts are with you both and although this is a very sad and hard time just remember all the joy she gave you when she was here. I am so very sad and will be for a while so I can't imagine how you two are feeling. I sincerely love how you two take care of so many animals as if they were your kids. It's not very often we meet such caring and compassionate people in our lives but I am so very thankful that I found your blog and have this opportunity to learn about and meet your entire animal family. You two are absolute angels in my book and every animal on the farm is lucky to have you both.
Sending my arms across the country to hug you both.
Lorraine Castellon-Rowe

Sandra and Christina

Hi you two,

I and my daughter have been following little C-Biscuit since her birth. We are both pulling for her and praying for all of you. We know that God knows what is best for all involved and His Will will be done. Hopefully that involves her pulling through and going on to grow up and become a mommy herself. We love all of you and you are ALL in our prayers.

Shirley & Amber Killian

I am so sorry about C-Biscuit, all of you are in my prayers, will be watching for an update.

Alan and Anna, I will be praying for both of you and for precious C-biscuit for strength and energy. I hope you hear positive news by tomorrow. Thanks for keeping us posted.
