I had two pygmy goats called Lucinda and Lavender, two goats of mixed parentage (!) called Oscar and Daisy and Angel, the lovely angora buck. I used to spin his fleece.
I also had sheep who lived well into their teens, chickens, ducks, quails, rabbits, cats and anything that turned up wanting a home.
I had polytunnels and grew all my own veggies and fruit, and sold the surplus.
It was expensive and back-breaking, but very rewarding and I miss that life and my animals.
I lost it all when I had to re-home them when my landlord gave me 8 weeks to leave because he wanted the house back for a relative who was coming home from abroad.
I've never got over that.
I still have my cats though.
Perhaps one day I'll get back ... ? I'll never give up hoping.
