With the prospect of a field to fill with animals next Spring E and I visited Buttercups Goat Sanctuary near Maidenhead today. It's a small charity which appears just to house and then re-home unwanted goats.
There were around 130 in a huge field all doing goaty things. As I spent my childhood with a big white goat called Ria I adored it and we had fun looking at all the other permutations of colour size and breed.
George and Heathcliff were our favourites...and the field was full of buttercups.
