During the horrible week in September, friend and fellow artist Sue and I made a plan.
We would go to see the secret urban goat farm of West Berlin.
We would draw strength from the goats. This plan gave us great comfort and an important thing to look forward to.
And it was deeply restorative.
Look at the grandma and grandbaby enjoying the goats, above – what a wonderful sight it was!
To the left you can see Sue’s hands as they petted the sweet goat! Goats are good magic.
The secret goat farm, the Charlottenburger Ziegenhof, is quite near our house. It is in a city block, with a cafe and art gallery and Indian restaurants right there. It is a heavenly place, a restful oasis. There are goats and fluffy chickens and myriad places for children to play. We slid down the slide!
The goats are gentle and calm. They amble over to you and present their necks for skritching.
These goats are cats. They are deeply slothful, and assume loaf position on their Goat Resting Shelf most of the time.
They are chill as fuck. Nothing has ever bothered them, and if it did, they would just eat it. Important info from the goat feeding guide:
The Ziegenhof is entirely volunteer run and donation supported.
I made these goat drawings with the financial support of my Patrons on Patreon and they are free to use and share!
Goats are great!
