Ekphrastic April, Day 10: "Goats"

Even if you don't like goats, I think you'll admit the piece is invitingly spring-like.

"Goats" (1934) by Dorothy Adamson [1894-1934]. The only biographical information I was able to find stated that she was an animal painter who specialized in hunting dogs.

Poison Ivy Control

Climate change has allowed poison ivy to move further north. It is now everywhere in New England and can result in nasty rashes. A few years ago I discovered that goats eat poison ivy, and, that farmers rent out goats! Great idea. And, in case you're worried about the "poison" crossing over into goats milk (and cheese), rest assured it does not!


  1. HA!! Poison ivy control! Who knew?!?!

  2. Ha! Reminds me of my "Goat Gardeners" poem for March Madness a few years ago (though quite a different style). https://michellehbarnes.blogspot.com/2015/03/tanka-toasts-and-total-madness.html
