If you hate sheep as much as we do then you’ll think this is hilarious.
You won’t find goats this dumb that’s for sure.
We saw quite a few fine specimens on our recent trip to Malawi, including this handsome fellow:
He was hanging out near the maize storage facility in the Millennium Village of Mwandama. I blogged about that here, though it might appear my goat fetish is being replaced by simians.
We were also in the Millennium Village of Gumulira, where select households were given goats to try to recruit them to be goat lovers. I blogged about that here, including video footage of baby goats bonking heads under hanging tobacco.
On the homefront, no update on our own goat situation. We were thinking of moving to a friend’s house on the outskirts of Nairobi because they have goats, but a few nights ago they were violently burgularized, so now we’re thinking otherwise. Until that time comes, we’ll live out our goat dreams vicariously through others.
Oh, I did add some goat manure to our garden this morning, if that counts for anything?
we had a bout of goiter to deal amongst other things, but now we are in greener pastures and one step closer to having our goat…
Our bid to obtain a goat from Eastern Kenya was rejected. Here’s the text of the email:
“Unfortunately the pastures in Nairobi (currently where they are) has no enough pasture for the goat and the goat may run away. Therefore, they think it should continue to graze in the extensive pastures of Dertu with the pastoralists until they they obtain an ideal grazing field.”
Maybe we should move to North Korea?
