she grazes wisely, choosing the herbs and grasses that will make the best nutrition and medicine for her health and the purity and vital power of her milk. adapted over countless millennia to the loving bond between goat and milker, she's - okay, a reluctant mother, and rejects her kids in favour of the milking, but if she's the universal foster-mother, i was hers, and now her strength and goodwill towards humanity is a powerful force for the healing of many of the ills of our species as well as that of many others. i'm talking about my dear old dagmar here, but i'm calling a blessing on all goats for the healthfulness and healing in the elixir of their being-in-the-world and gratitude for her sacrifices and her good milk.
i put this picture on my fb but thought i could share it here too. wish i could give anyone who wants it a glass of this good fresh warm magical medicinal milk and a hug of my good old goat!
ps. there's always so much sickness and suffering on this forum, and not enough good medicine. so here's something healthy to do us all good!
