Yes I'm sorry I said the C word- but it has come early with our presents to each other - I bought MrP an Ella...



Ella LOVES ivy!

 They are looking a bit odd as they were sheared before I collected them- they look much much better with their lovely curly locks


Ella means 'pretty little elf/fairy' suits her doesn't it?
 He bought me a Dotty- Dotty was bottle fed and follows me everywhere like a little puppy

Beautiful Dotty (note the pretty collar)
 They are pedigree Angora goats- I have wanted one for sooooo long. They have a purpose too they are organic strimmers and will hopefully eat the long grass and weeds off the field that the horses won't eat- at the moment though they are concentrating on the ivy on the old barn- plus when they are next sheared in the spring I can have the wool spun and knit something made from my own angora


                                             Dotty also LOVES ivy (and savoy cabbage)

The garden with the stables in the background
I decided to break you in gently with the before pictures at the farmhouse- this is the garden from the back door (which for convenience is located right next to the front door) I'm hoping at some point next year this will be a beautiful cottage garden- one of the Belfast sink planters was in great condition so now has pride of place in my kitchen- it is almost half finished (pictures to follow)

Remember though a goat is for life not just for Christmas...
