Hi all! Thanks for following me on this adventure! :)
I wanted to take a moment to address Pat's question about how will I ever return Miss Darla.
I'm actually anxious for her to return to the barn because living like this is not a great idea since she DOES have to return. If the barn were in my backyard and I could continue this it would be different but she lives on a farm...and all that that entails. I am, after all is said and done, only a goat borrower. And she is a goat.
This nasty weather afforded me an opportunity to learn so, so much and Farmer Lyle, who is a farmer for a living, has been most gracious to indulge a goat borrower like me. He's taken time from his chores to answer a million question and impart 50 plus years of goat wisdom.
Besides, this is only the very beginning for me and Darla!
I'm pretty sure this bonding experience seals the deal in our Maa-goat relationship.
A lucky accident as it were.
I will continue to feed her, care for her, visit her and love her. She'll be visiting pre-schools, nursing homes and events and all with her crazy storytelling Maa in costume. She'll wear the Capra Project blanket proudly and be a fine Yule goat.
And we'll both have a very magical and special relationship and many, many barn adventures to come!
And really, for a townhome dwelling goat lover, who could ask for anything more?
Love you all.......
I am so glad we've met........
ps. If you don't know about the CAPRA AND THE MAGICAL GOAT BLANKET PROJECT you can find it here in this blog. It's going quite nicely and people have been so kind. I'd really like to say you are all a piece of this project if you care to send a scrap of fabric.
