ON THE ISLAND.

. . . Old Janet settled herself a little further off, winking and blinking at thought of the pleasure at hand.  For at these times Nellie told them stories; and if you think they did not understand, I can only say that it was Nellie’e belief that her goats understood every word.

    1. They are! And there are many children’s stories from 100 years ago that feature goats – they were interesting! I was thinking of a goat week! So many pictures!

      1. We have six. Good old Sunshine practically jumped into our truck when we bought our first two does. She can’t be bred–but my husband fell in love with her. Everyone who visits loves her best. I’m not sure why. Then our does had three kids this year–two does, one buck who I insisted we save so I can train him to pull me around in a cart.
