Words to Consider

  • "And the Bastard grant us, in our direst need, the smallest gifts: the nail of the horseshoe, the pin of the axle, the feather at the pivot point, the pebble at the mountain's peak, the kiss in despair, the one right word. In darkness, understanding." -- Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold
  • "There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious-makes you so sick at heart-that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!" - Mario Savio
  • "They tell us that we live in a great free republic; that our institutions are democratic; that we are a free and self-governing people. That is too much, even for a joke. ... Wars throughout history have been waged for conquest and plunder... And that is war in a nutshell. The master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles." —Eugene Victor Debs
  • i do it for the joy it brings / because i am a joyful girl / because the world owes me nothing / and we owe each other the world / i do it because it's the least i can do / i do it because i learned it from you / i do it just because i want to / because I want to —"Joyful Girl", Ani DiFranco
  • "Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short. Civilization is another word for respect for life." - Elizabeth Goudge, author of The Joy of the Snow

Sigrdrifa's Prayer

  • Hail to the Day / Hail to Day’s Sons / Hail to the Night and her Daughters / With loving eyes look upon us here / And bring victory to those who have gathered / Hail to the gods / Hail to the goddesses / Hail to the mighty, fecund Earth / Eloquence and native wit bestow on us / And healing hands while we live

My kitty is obviously much smaller than a goat, but she becomes a hellish creature when we try to trim her nails. It take the two of us to overpower her and lots of patience to get the job done. All that for such a little thing. So it amazes me that one man, with a bit of rope, can trim Zeekie's hooves without incident. Well done, John! :-)


OMG! That is too funny!
Your goats are very entertaining.
And pretty, too. :)

Looks like a good way to get a backache.


Okay! Now I have to pee - tho' NOT on a rope - from LAUGHING! Tell John he's my HERO! And YOU should have been a writer, Anita Edmonds! Charles de Lint has NOTHING on YOU! LOL!


very smart goat!


Ah...the dreaded hoof trimming!

I used to have a really hard time with that. I don't need to do it often unless the girls get a bit ragged...the rocks tend to keep their feet in good form.

But when I do, I use the dremel. And they really seem to enjoy it. I do have a stanchion though...that helps lots.


oh, how you would love to read my friend Peggy's blog - she has goats and lots of other animals!
