Meant to Be
About a month ago I heard through the grapevine that the local zoo might be interested in getting some baby goats from me for their petting farm. I gave them my contact information and waited to hear from them. We were really excited to have a couple of our babies at the zoo. It is a wonderful facility where they would get top-notch care and my family could go there and see all the children enjoying them. My son and daughter-in-law happened to be here when Snaps was just born so they got busy holding and socializing him for a life at the zoo. It's a tough job but someone had to do it.
Then I never heard back from the zoo. I called and talked to a very nice lady and told her what I'd heard. I just needed an answer so I could move on with finding them a home if they weren't interested. She said she would talk to the keeper and someone would get right back to me. They didn't.
So I decided I'd waited long enough and put my last two babies of the season, Spots and Snaps, up for sale together.
Enter Jennifer who grew up with goats and is starting a new preschool called Rooster Valley Farm School. She had been searching a long time for the two perfect wethers for her little farm. She came out yesterday with two of her children, Jack and Eleanor, to meet the goats. My goats loved them. Especially Snaps. All the holding that Kyle and Stephanie did was rewarded in spades.
Naturally Jennifer and her children were thrilled that the zoo had not taken them and they could buy them for their school.
If I had a preschooler...and lived in Snoqualmie...I would be happy to have him or her spend the day with this wonderful sweet kind lady and a couple of funny little wethers named Snaps and Spots.
I said it before and I'll say it again....
I meet the nicest people selling goats!
