Tour of Michael's Folly - Emily in the paddock

[ Emily the goat in summer 1999 ]

Emily the goat in her paddock in summer 1999. I used to feed her all my leftover organic veg and salads, as well as herbs from the garden; this girl could munch her way through a metre-high thistle faster than anyone I know. Sadly she passed away in August 2001 following an unsuccessful pregnancy. We buried her in the woods, and had a funeral ritual with the kids singing songs as we danced around her grave covered in flowers and plants she liked to eat.
