Owning a very small goat quickly became a very large task. Not only did I need to be close to feed her 4 times a day but Poppy craved company and I was her only friend. Poppy got up before me, went to bed after me and slept on my lap as much as possible. We spent so much time together that I began to feel half goat. I thought that as she grew she'd become more independant but she was a very sick goat when I got her and she was taking her time about growing up. Then late one Friday night Poppy escaped from her paddock and unable to find me at home she walked over to the bar to find me (which isn't as silly as it sounds since Nairn would often bring her for a walk to visit during the day). The customers saw the funny side but obviously something had to be done to keep Poppy happy. The sensible answer was to get another goat.
In early 2012 Penny & Nairn moved from central Wellington to South Westland. Welcome to the record of their adventures.
