Milking Apr12 by Mark M. Redfearn still milking in my summer dreams Rosie-goat Related Post navigation ← Archer Water Boy → 19 comments on “Milking” gemma says: April 12, 2013 at 12:05 pm Better to milk a goat than carry one especially in Arizona summer. 🙂 Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: April 12, 2013 at 12:32 pm I’ve never carried a full-grown goat. What’s that like? Reply yerpirategunn says: April 12, 2013 at 1:12 pm Very good that one – still going on, real or not…in the mind, yes.. Reply pritilisa says: April 12, 2013 at 1:31 pm LOL Gemma! Poor Rosie, where are her kids? 🙂 Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: April 12, 2013 at 1:45 pm You know what happens to most kids, don’t you? Especially the males… Reply 4joyjoanne says: April 12, 2013 at 2:53 pm hope she is still being milked! Funny to read of summer memories when we’ve hardly had a Spring…. Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: April 12, 2013 at 3:35 pm Sadly, Rosie went to goat heaven many years ago… Reply Sam Edge, Writer says: April 12, 2013 at 3:41 pm God job – i wrestled with this one ..

I can only relate to my own childhood dreams of reading about living on a farm! Holy Anthem Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: April 12, 2013 at 7:20 pm I didn’t grow up on a farm, although my mother did—and she hated it! When I left home, I ended up being a hippie farmer for, oh, twenty years or so. Now I’m a sort-of respectable citizen, but I still miss having goats around. They are wondrous creatures. If you ever get a chance to get close to one, look in its eyes. The eyes were what enchanted me from the onset. Reply WabiSabi says: April 12, 2013 at 8:49 pm You just reminded me of the only eye contact I’ve ever had with a goat. I bring a beloved little boy to the barn at the local (city)zoo where he squeals with delight when feeding the goats. I have made eye contact with them, exhorting them with a silent look, to be gentle with the little boy! They understand.

Notes of Gold Reply rebecca says: April 12, 2013 at 9:34 pm seriously did i ever tell you i had a goat named rosie? Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: April 13, 2013 at 2:09 am Really, really, really? Then we have one more thing in common! The Rosie-goat in this haiku is not a figment of my imagination: She was one of the first three goats I ever kept, along with Jenny and Malcom.

Love the haiku, that started the string of conversation…I’m sure she is in goat heaven butting heads with angels.☺ Peace Siggi Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: April 14, 2013 at 6:55 pm Yes, Rosie-goat would do that, Siggi: butt heads with angels. 🙂 Reply siggiofmaine says: March 30, 2021 at 2:05 pm Smiles .. 🙂 ❤ Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
