A Happy Goat Interview and Giveaway
January 30, 2014
I'd like you to meet my colleague Pricilla, who has been heavily involved in the launch of BABY PENGUINS LOVE THEIR MAMA!
Pricilla is Famous SpokesGoat for Happy Goat Soaps. They make the amazing mama/baby penguin soaps I've been giving away at my readings. It has been a pleasure for a city-dweller like me to meet Pricilla and her owner, Patty, and I thought I'd invite Pricilla to talk about herself and life on the farm.
Pricilla, I have so many questions. First, how old are you?
A ladygoat does not maaa things like this! But I can pass on that I am nearing 18 years on this Earth.
Do you have any kids?
I have had several kids in my day. AbbyGoat is my kid but she doesn't listen to me any longer. Isn't THAT the way of it?
How long have you lived with Patty? Do you get along?
I LOVE my publicist! She brings me apples and she scratches my tail. I have lived with her for almost 7 years now.
Where is your farm?
My farm is in a magical part of Montana. It is called Superior. And it is.
Are there other animals on your farm? Are any of them famous, like you?
AbbyGoat likes to THINK she is famous but she is not. I am training little Bernadette the goat to take over when I retire. The four Farm cats - Stinky, Pumpkin, Sherpa and Harry - are developing quite a following. Especially Sherpa. He is a crazy cat!
How many years were you active as a dairy goat?
I have kept my past secret from my publicist. My first farm was not a happy farm. They took my horns. I miss my horns. My second farm was very nice. I was there for three years and gave them lots of rich milk. Then I came to the Happy Goats Farm where I helped the publicist start my soap shop. I gave her milk for two years and then retired. She was just learning and she realized that I should have been retired earlier. The people who had me before didn't know that and didn't tell her either. We are all lucky that I survived my last pregnancy. Now I get to graze and bask my days away and maaaa about being a Happy Goat!
What’s your favorite food?
Apples, apples, apples, apples, apples, apples, apples, apples, apples, apples, apples, grain, apples apples, apples, corn, apples apples, apples, strawberries, apples, apples, apples, apples, apples, watermelon, apples, apples, apples, carrot tops, apples, apples, apples, apples, apples, beet greens, apples, apples, apples, APPLES!
What’s your favorite soap scent?
I really don't work with the scents. That is the publicist's job. If I had to pick I would maaaa Apple! The publicist has several favorites including Afternoon Tea, Lemongrass and Fresh Pineapple.
Was your milk used for things other than soap?
Oh yes! The publicist makes cheeses and ice cream and caramel and fudge and hot fudge sauce and yogurt.
Do you ever take baths?
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! No water. I hate water except to drink. If I need to feel clean I take a dust bath. It feels soooo good to roll around in the dust.
What’s retirement like?
It's the best! I eat my grain. I eat my hay. I graze, I munch, I nibble, I bask. It's the goat life!
Any questions for me?
When are you going to write a book about a goat?
Funny you should ask, Pricilla. A good friend of mine just wrote a book about a goat. You'd enjoy it!
I want to thank Pricilla and her
owner publicist Patty for all they've done. They've even donated three wonderful soaps for a giveaway! Enter whydoncha!
