Moo - The one and Only - We Will Never Forget

5/21/2020

Moo is a 4 year old Alpine doe who came to the farm quite by accident and, some would call it, fate. Moo and my 2nd son, Tyler, share the same birthdays. I had gone to a farm to pick out our LaMancha and Alpine herd sires with 2 of my (human) girlfriends and both of them saw this little goat that looked just like a Holstein cow and said I HAD to bring her home.

Now, I was not in the market for another Alpine doeling but she had a way of weaseling her way into my heart that day and refused to take no for an answer. But Moo wasn't exactly available for sale. There were other people on the waiting list that were ahead of me. So I had to wait for the owners to reach out to them and give them first rights to my Moo Moo. A painful week later, we heard back from the breeder who told us Moo was all ours, if we were still interested.... Ha!

Moo is quite the character and has provided hundreds of laughs over the last 4 years. Moo loves to talk... she loves to talk when she's happy to see you, mad that you're leaving, when she misses you, when she thinks you have forgotten to feed her. She loves to hear herself talk. And by talk, I mean yell. If Moo has something to say, the whole farm is going to hear about it. But what Moo loves even more than the sound of her own voice... is FOOD!

Moo lives up to her name in that she eats EVERYTHING! A few years ago, our old Oak tree produced so many green acorns and, of course, they fell into the goat's paddock before I could pick them up. Moo ate them as if they were little goat candies falling from the sky and got herself so sick she needed a week and several rounds of meds to recover.

Several people ask us throughout the year if Moo is due to have babies soon. I always laugh and say, "No, she's just Moo!" LOL She's a basketball factory on 4 legs. I can't even say how many times my husband has rushed into the house saying Moo was bloating just to go out to see she gorged herself on hay again.

But Moo has matured into a very nice Doe. She has yet to produce a flashy kid like herself but we know it's just a matter of time. Despite that, she does produce some really nice, sweet natured kids. Moo also lives up to her name, in that, she produces a ton of milk. This girl knows how to keep a couple babies well-fed. Her BFF on the farm is Genevieve and, as of late, Harper. Gen and Moo have spent every day of their lives together and routinely leave their kids to snuggle together so they can lay down together for a nap in the sun. Moo is a one-of-a-kind girl who is loved by many!!!

 

Edited to add: Some may wonder why Moo is the only adult in the barn not bred to have kids this year. (2020) You see, Moo got really sick about a month before breeding season. So sick that she needed a goat-to-goat blood transfusion. Rainey stepped up as the blood donor (which could explain their hostile relationship lately). Anyways... we decided it would be healthier for Moo to be allowed to focus on her health and just be a goat this year. No stress from pregnancy, no stress from kidding and being in milk all summer long. It's very taxing on the body. Moo is in perfect health right now and we are all so thankful for that. We hope to see her pregnant again next year (fingers crossed!)

Unfortunately in 2022 Moo Passed Away... As of today (3/14/2022) It's still too hard to write that story. In the mean time, feel free to leave you comments below. 

The map shows all the location that the moo stuffy has gone. Moo is going to be loved all around the world.

I only recently found out about your farm on YouTube right before Moe had her babies Winnie and Winston.
It only took one day of watching and I was in love with moo my son has a goat named moo also that looks like your moo except her face isn’t White it’s also black and white spots. I watched so many hours of you being so wonderful to her when she was sick.
I’m sure you miss her terribly I do and I hardly knew her. I hope you heal soon I know I’ll never forget moo.

Liz & Aaron it took me a while to write. Listening to u right now. Moo was always putting a smile on my face. I don’t have much love in my life. You and your farm mean a lot to me. I talk about the farm all the time. Moo is the first goat I love ❤️. I will want Moo items as u make them. Enjoy your tea towel. Sending love and prayers

Dear Moo, You were the goat for me, although I Loved all the goats you were my special goat. I still can’t believe you’re gone. For whatever reason God needed you back, he only ever picks the nicest flower from the garden. You will be in my Heart forever. You will never suffer pain again and you’re Free to roam everywhere. I know you will watch over the Syman’s like a Guardian Angel. Love and Miss you Moo Moo Marie xo

Moo Moo, I still miss you & always will. You were such a special goat, an instigator at times & other times you couldn’t be more loving. I still cry when I see pictures of you, & I laugh when I read about & remember your antics. You will forever have a place in my heart & thousands upon thousands upon thousands of others’ hearts. My life is richer for you having been in it. Even though we never met, I feel like we have. Everyone will know about you, including new Villagers. Your name lives on forever, just like your spirit does. I hope you’re snuggling with baby blue, & enjoying watching your Win twins! They are having so much fun & carry you with them always. I believe you knew Momma Liz & Daddy Aaron would take great care of your babies, so you felt it’s ok to go on & no longer be sick & in horrendous pain. You were a trooper for sure! You were & always will be the one & only & best Moo Moo Marie! I love you to pieces!!! 💜💜❤💜💜

Moo Moo, I loved you from the moment I first saw you, a very special and sweet goat. I will miss you always but you will remain in my heart forever. I will cherish my mini moo stuffy, your book, and my moo-saage bar, always and forever 💜

Barbara Lettin March 18, 2022

Moo, You will be miss. I started watching in 2019. I had to take a second look to see you Moo. I thought you were a cow at first and I know that you was a goat. I love watching you in the barn and for WW. Your kids will live on with you sprite in them. I wish I could have meet you but your stuff sit beside the bed on the nightstand. Love you Moo.

Kandie M Sisk March 18, 2022

Moo you will be so missed but we have your little ones to help us heal. The timing on Mom Liz’s book and stuffy are so very special not knowing what the coming kidding season would hold. You will never be forgotten and I will treasure my book and stuffy. Hugs to the Symans and friends and our Strong villagers.

Dear Moo, I just started following your channel a few months ago so I didn’t get to know you but from going back and watching some videos you look like you were such a character I especially loved the maternity shot lol.

Melissa Mitchell March 17, 2022

From your beautiful outfits, your mighty Moo Holler for treats, to your pumpkin stained face, You, Moo Moo Marie, will be missed and loved forever. The sisters of your herd, boyfriend buck-a-roos, House of Pi, kidds and future kidds of the SSF CC herd, will also be watched over and loved. Mini Moo and I look in every day, along with many other loving villagers. To Aaron, Liz, Family and Friends, Thank You, You are an inspiration to and loved by, so many of us.

I seen Moo for the first time 1 day before before she was due to have her babies. I never expected to find the farm live. I was looking around and seen baby goats, so I decided to check it out. I seen Moo and fell in love with her immediately. I’ve been watching ever since. I love all of the goats. Moo, I don’t know what it was but I just had a special feeling about her. I wish I would have found her sooner. I received Moo the Goat book last week and I love it. Moo was definitely special. Watching Winnie and Winston brings me such joy. I only got to watch Moo for a short time, and I’m so thankful I did. Thank you so much Aaron and Liz for letting us watch. Moo Moo Marie will never be forgotten.❤❤

Sheryl Farnese March 17, 2022

Oh Moo! Such a unique creature of God! You gave unconditional love, brought peace to our busy lives, and so many smiles to us. We have been blessed to have known you! Moo, may we carry that love and peace forward, to others, in your memory and honor.

Monica Wilder March 17, 2022

Moo I only stumbled across this site a few months ago- so didn’t get to see you over the years, but sounds like you were a character…but Winnie/Winston are in good hands. Gone—-but not forgotten. I will follow Syman Says Farm with interest and love.

Debra Gibson-Davneport March 17, 2022

Moo, you will never, never be forgotten. I will always miss you. You are in my heart forever

I first started watching Moo because my girlfriend was watching the Symans. Moo definitely jumped out to me. She’s beautiful even though she looked and sounded like a cow. She is a great ambassador for Syman Says Farms. I miss Moo, but am smiling watching the “Win” twins grow up! Thank you Liz &Aaron for sharing Moo and your family with YT. You have lots of people who support you and send our love and prayers! We are here and it doesn’t matter how long you need to feel ok about talking about Moo. We will continue to watch and support you. Much love and support, we love y’all!! I have a Moo stuffy and I got her book on Kindle. I will never forget Moo!!! #village strong💜💜💜

The first time I saw Moo she had a cast on…Knowing absolutely nothing about goats I was curious about SSF, Moo and everything goats. Well I have learned a lot since then and one thing is that Moo was not an ordinary goat. My hubby would come in and ask if I was watching that cow-goat…but he was hooked to and asked about her every day during kidding season. We will all miss Moo as we knew her in her earthly self but she will live on in our hearts, minds and spirit. One day we will be able to talk about Moo Moo Marie with joy and not sadness. XO

Joanne Anderson March 17, 2022

Moo Moo Marie was loved by so many people around the world. She will always hold a Special Place in the Hearts of The Village. Syman Says Farms – Thank You for sharing her and the rest of your Farm animals with us. I see on the map my Moo’s that arrived in Texas – many have been gifted and the one I saved sits by computer to keep me company.

Sharon Beiter March 17, 2022

When I first found SSF and started watching, Moo instantly caught my eye with her unique appearance, I had never seen a goat that looked and later found, sounded like a cow, she was beautiful. Moo captured the hearts of many people around the world and her passing has hit everyone hard. Moo will always be remembered fondly and with her two adorable twins, Winnie & Winston in the barn, our hearts will slowly mend. 💜

Nicola B March 17, 2022

I found the Syman’s youtube channel during the 2020 kidding season and instantly fell in love with Moo. Her sassyness and all around silliness captured my heart and she became my favorite. She was one of a kind and such a blessing to your wonderful farm. Such a tremendous loss all around. RIP sweet Moo Moo. Your spirit certainly lives on in those 2 wonderful babies you left behind. Will miss you forever
