Day 15 Entry 4
Our next to last day was a huge success! After breakfast we went with Mama Kuku, Michael, Kinai and Sampson up steep and hard packed dirt roads and picked up a gentleman who guided us to his home among banana trees. We found three more goats to add to Tom’s newly constructed goat shed at the Sunrise of Life street children home. One was a nanny with a kid in her belly, another was a nanny who had a kid and finally, put into the package deal, the billy kid. (There was no point for them keeping the billy goat since he could not produce milk.) I am not expert on udders but by comparison to the ones we had seen before we went on safari, we had hit the jackpot and all for 470,000 shillings. Tom and I wondered how the goats were going to get to the children’s compound. Alas, they were put in the very back seat with the largest one situated right behind Tom’s head. Yup, he was really excited about that nose on his neck, so we traded places and I sat kiddie (no pun intended) corner. Poor Kinai seated with the goats was the recipient of a lapful of excrement and pee during the journey.
The goats were delivered to their new domain where there was a bit of jockeying about with the other three goats. Happy day.
