Portrait sitting with an old goat



He approached the red barn like a movie star on a Hollywood set, waiting for the lighting to be adjusted just right to catch his best features. If he'd been clothed in red velvet, what King or Pope could compete with his beard or his proud stature?

He glances out to a horizon line with a calm, internal force that tells the world,

"I am Guinnias, I am here."

Old Man Guinnias came to Apifera after we adopted him from the  New Moon Goat Farm who had rescued him. He is one of five senior goats Apifera has adopted from New Moon.

Beautiful! A distinguished and very much loved goat. Such an elegant line to his face, his beard. He is a very regal one.

He knows things.

Seeing his teeth make it look as though he is smiling. Very cute.
