SAGE SISTER SPEAKS......

Sage Sister's Wisdom For Those Who Should Know Better.....But Usually Don't.......
Sage Sister, a product of a combination of Sisterhood of the Goat and my (hilarious? painful? reality check?) learning adventures on my Borrowed Farm.
Lots of things have happened to me in the course of the last two years of being The Goat Borrower and, from time to time, Sage Sister is compelled to speak.
This is her advice thus far......
Words of Wisdom from the Sage Sister:
Fo people who ought to know better....but don’t.
Please find The Sisterhood of the Goat on Facebook and join us for lots and lots of fun farm adventures!
