Goats are social creatures. When we bought our kids the owners knowing this made it a major stipulation that we could not just buy one goat from them. By nature, goats are herd animals and the owners concern and “before you buy” requirement confirmed that we bought our goats from the right place.
Our two goats while they often have spats do enjoy cuddling up once and awhile.
Thought I share these photos for our younger (and older, not wanting to exclude) readers this morning.
Now we get a lot of letters, email, from people. But yesterday we received an extra special one from a 10 year old reader which made my/our day!
Greetings from snow covered PA
Dear Ms. Dervaes,
I am a 10 year old home schooler. My family has enjoyed your web site
very much. My little sisters like to look at your animals. My mom
enjoys reading your menus and looking at what you’ve cooked. We garden,
and our menus are planned around what we’ve grown also. My dad teaches
college English, and he made his students look at your web site in his
environmental lit class. We appreciate that your family shares your
experience on your web site.
Slyvia, your email was very special to us. I printed it up and will look at often here on my desk. We are so glad you and your family enjoy this site as much as we enjoy sharing with you. Thank you so much for writing and keep in touch!
To know that we have young readers here at LHITC is really a humbling thought and makes me want to share even more. Believe me there’s not any lack of writing material here on the urban homestead. It’s just having time to sit down and write about it. No lack of photos either. Too many in fact.
But when I get an email like this one makes me want to find time in my already busy schedule. So thank you for reminding me/us why we do what we do.
How many young readers do we have hear. Care to raise your hands and would you like to see more of here at LHITC? I know, I know besides the cute animal photos.
