"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

Now That's What I'm Talkin' 'Bout ...

Really. The picture just DOES not do it justice. Really. You may recall that back in February the goatmother learned how to crochet. In case you forgot, you can check here. Anyway, at that time I was hoping against hope for a coat. But then she made this ridiculous looking thing for Cabra (check it out here) and I lost ALL interest. Quickly. I'm sure you can understand why. But now... NOW the goatmother has fashioned what you see above. It is beautiful. It is purple (my favorite color) and it has lovely pastel flowers. Okay, I'm back in for the coat. A goat could look very stylish in something like this. Why I could be the next Linda Evangoatista, or the next Tyra Butts, or maybe even the next Cindy Cudford. I am So stoked. All I need now is a pair of Jimmy Chews or Manolo Baaaniks to complete my ensemble. Move over all you would-be fashionistas. Mahrí-gold is on the goatwalk.

That goatmother is one quick learner.
Do you have to keep Cabra away from the finished product?

Dear goatgirl,
Cabra seems only to be interested in the 'little' pieces. Once they achieve some size she seems to lose interest. This is a good thing.

Wow. The Goatmother is a woman of many, many talents. Can't wait to see what she'll come up with for you, Marigold. Maybe a cape? That'd be pretty dashing.
