Getting My Goat

I just bought a goat. Actually, I just bought six of them.

Please don’t tell my wife — we have enough animals (although the appeal of not weed-wacking our property may be irresistible).

Actually, the goats aren’t for me — they’re part of a mission program through World Vision to donate animals to poor families and villages around the world. Unlike simple donations for food or clothing, livestock help sustain a family for the long term. They are food factories — turning grass and grain into nutritious milk, eggs, and other high-protein food sources.

If you’re not into goats, you can donate chickens, ducks, sheep, fish, cattle, or a fish pond. Really neat stuff.

So check it out, and make a difference in the lives of others here.

You don’t really need that new Blu-Ray player, now do you?

  1. Hello I found your blog looking for stuff on our sons birth defect esophageal atresia. i wish you the best and you have a great blog.

  2. How cool. And also, goat wool can be spun/plyed into wool for knitting clothing. (I know that because I am a knitter, and goat wool is quite a lucrative yarn industry.)
