Brooding On

Living with Goats

"You need humility  . . . to live with goats -- and you need a good sense of humor.  Goats, . . . are the same size and weight as us.  They can stand on two feet at our height, and even their eyes remind us of a version of ourselves; and if they like you they'll lick your face and if they don't -- watch out. "
                                                  From Brad Kessler's Goat Song

When I stood in the field with the goats and pulled the Mimosa branch low enough for them to reach more blooming goodness, they were definitely loving me . . . and, humbling me as they stood, hoofs on my chest, using me to get a leg-up to higher branches!
