THE WISDOM of SAGE SISTER

SAGE SISTER SPEAKS......

art by Dame Laura Knight (1877-1970)



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! 

#1. "NEVER ENTER THE BUCK BARN DURING RUT SEASON WITH AN OPEN JAR OF MOLASSES."


#2.  “NEVER ATTEMPT TO WALK THROUGH THE GOAT PASTURE WHILST HIDING A BANANA IN THE POCKET OF YOUR GOOD DRESS PANTS.”


#3.  “YOU KNOW THOSE TINY METAL THINGS ON PIGTAIL ELASTICS?  IF YOU SHOULD THINK ABOUT LEANING OVER THE HOT FENCE TO FEED YOUR COW A YULE TREAT…DON’T.”


#4.  “IF, AFTER HAVING FED YOUR COW CLEMENTINES, YOU RUN OUT OF SAID CLEMENTINES, DO NOT TURN YOUR BACK ON YOUR COW TO CLOSE THE GATE.  COW HUGS ARE NOT COMFORTING, HOWEVER MUCH YOU’D LIKE TO THINK OTHERWISE.”


Stay tuned for more of Sage Sister........pretty much as the Incidents occur........

In the meantime....come find us on Facebook!  Just search for Sisterhood of the Goat
