Goat carts 13.gif

The christmas most dear to my heart
was buying Beepers a cart
that was towed by a goat
And certain to float
When inflated with a fart.

Sweet! hi5.gif

Uganda is such a trouble-stricken land.

Right kind of aid, imho. hi5.gif

It's a great idea, but where is the money coming from for feed and vet care? Sorry, but I'm concerned about the animals' welfare. 13.gif

The money is all donated via the church. Not so worried about goat feed as they tend to eat anything. chuckle.gif

The link I posted tells the story about Agnes who applied for a course in farming and animal husbandry (paid by the church) and was given a few goats. She bred goats for the whole village and for the money they got from selling goat milk they bought cows and sewing machines. The women of the village also founded a group to care for orphans, widows and aids victims.

Octo, I just found this while looking for cute goat stuff. wtf2.gif

Quote:

Ask any conservationist what they think of goats, and they will tell you: they are one of the most environmentally destructive creatures in the world, particularly in arid, drought prone areas, with erratic rainfall. There is also a direct correlation (as yet largely unquantified by any scientists) between the numbers of goats and the disappearance of wildlife. Large mammals, adapted to living in arid areas, such as antelopes (many of which are endangered), are in direct competition with cattle, goats, sheep and other livestock – and cows need huge quantities of water as well as grazing.
