The Great Goat Rodeo
More recently, a close friend, a transfer from South Africa, hired a flock for a similar, steep, jungle-like situation. She and I both have a love of goats, but for different reasons.
She loves to consume goats, I love to pet them! But we both enjoy eating goat cheese, especially when served with figs, honey and thyme.
We also love the name of a South African wine featuring this beloved creature.
From time to time, we all get “emergency calls”, these generally bring on various feelings of dread, fear, sadness or regret and a sense of urgency.
Tonight, I received an emergency call, to which I was thrilled to respond. Lassos in hand, my son and I headed out to coral some goats who had “gone to the other side”.

LOL! I think I know exactly where these goats roamed! I love when city and country collide!

I SO agree!!
Great post. I recall being at the Goats do Roam winery in South Africa. It was a nice spot and what an interesting phenomena.
