During the horrible week in September, friend and fellow artist Sue and I made a plan.
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!
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!
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.
