Stella and Iris


The sun rose like it did everyday, but today being Wednesday, it was just a teeny bit earlier than yesterday. So noted Stella, the largest of the two Boer goats sitting on a wooden pallet, surrounded in mud with the heads of new grasses peaking out.

Visit Tails & Tales, the short story site of artist/Katherine Dunn to read this story.

I'm with Iris. I don't like fences either. Fences are to open and get out of, so there.
That was in defense of the the "monkey" goat.
That was a good story, thanks.

you gals are quite the entertaining trio. love the story, K. it flows so naturally for you. more, more! and i'm all about NO fences. i guess the only one oso has is our door...and he simply rings the yak bell to alert me, and i am the steady gate opener giving him daily "insie-outie" priviledges. hee. he's got me wrapped around his paw, big time.

That is a beautiful, sweet story. I've never known a goat personally but they seem like lovely creatures.

You just keep outdoing yourself! I can't tell you what an inspiration you are. The art, the animals, the gardens and boundless creativity. How do you get it all done so finely?
