It’s Cy’s birthday today. She’s two. She was the first goat born on Big Picture Farm and continues to maintain her position in the deepest center of our hearts. She is easy going, independent (if not a tad aloof), but always sweet to the others, especially her mom. She champions a very amusing style of play (even at Day 1 she would climb up, launch off, then silently perch on the cinder block in her maternity pen for hours on end). Her mother is Gertrude (Stein). Her daughter, Eva (Hesse). As a family, they represent the “artist” branch of our sprawling, surprising, loving, ridiculous, and ever-rewarding family tree. They are a loyal tree-o.
We’ll drink Budweiser out of can to thee. (it’s the only beer we’ve got right now, for real).
