I, Fenway Bartholomule, have just had the most splendiferous and amazing idea yet!

What do we have? We have:

A) A small farm, where little acreage means little gardening jobs.
B) A FarmWife with a big hankering to use draft power.
C) A lazy, bored, strong goat boy.
D) A mule with no desire whatsoever to pull anything at all.

News flash! FarmWife, thou must get thee a goat-sized plow. Jasper'll do the work more gladly than I, and I can carry you down the trail more ably than he. You will succeed in all endeavors. Joy and peace shall reign.

You're welcome.



  1. Fenway, that is a brilliant idea. Goats used to be widely used as draft animals a hundred years ago; here in Australia they were in widespread use in outback towns until the 1940s.

  2. Now, if only FarmWife will go for your idea!!


Thanks in Advance for Your Mulish Opinion!
