Ahhh....friends with goats....how I envy them.....and how I love them for allowing me to be a Goat Borrower. 'Tis a kind and generous person and a special friend who'll let you borrow their goats.

Had a lovely day this day at Kritter Kris' farm, visiting the animals, borrowing some goats for snuzzling and sharing time and a yummy sup with kindred spirits.

I am always overwhelmed at how wise and giving these creatures are. It's as though they know when your soul could use a good snuzzle. They graciously give of themselves all the time you need and more, all without question. And they whisper wondrous goat stories in your ear. Really, they do! If you listen carefully they'll tell you stories of wild flowers and Goat Kings and magical meadows where, they assure you, one day you'll have goats of your own. You only need to wait until the time is right.

And so, I'll wait. I believe the Universe provides and I believe, when the time is right and all things align, two goats, who belong only to me, will come capering into my life with stories to whisper and tales to tell. And then, I'll be the one to give back and happily welcome another soul into the world of goat borrowing.

Good night, little goats. And thank you.

I wish we were neighbors!! Buttons, Blackie, Hayley, and Jolly would so love having you around to listen to their stories and adventures. Can't wait till you are adopted by a couple of goats as I know you will have amazing stories to tell.

Thanks! I think we'd make for perfect neighbors! And while I wait for my two goats I'll keep enjoying your blog!

Snuzzle a goat for me!

A Goat Borrower can never have too many goats! ;)
