Goats

My fellow Canadian friend, Diane, has lived in our town of Atenas, Costa Rica, for over eight years. She can find anything, anywhere. She knows all the shops in Alajuela and Atenas and probably many other places ... the ropas, where to buy fabric and sewing supplies, shoes, the garden shops where I can get my orchid supplies. This gal is a font of information and has the eyes of an eagle.

Which brings me to goats (not eagles). Here is one of my latest paintings of a goat:

31.5"x31.5", acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas.

You can see my artwork here.

Intrepid Diane leading me to the goats.

Diane knows I like goats (and cows, and horses, and chickens, dogs and cats and anything else on four legs). She found a source of goats near where she lives. So off we went to find them again and take pictures. We found them after a walk up a side road.

    1. I understand that Coopeatenas carries goat milk by the liter, as well as goat yogurt and goat cheese. The cheese is excellent.

    2. Yes, we already purchased some and made delicious cheese but we want to try using milk fresh from the goat.
