...craft fair buddy!! Meet Marigold...(modelled on my real goat, savannah and badly drawn by me!!)



Small child in background had to just jump in soon as she saw the camera  :mwaha:

Marigold has a fully functioning udder that people can come along and have a got at milking (only got water in it) and I'm hoping it will draw people over to get them talking about goats and goats milk in general
I also now have a diddy table and chairs so that little people can sit and colour in pictures of goats, a huge banner to tell people what I am selling (ie. no its not fudge!!) and designing an A-frame with lots of goaty facts on.
After my disaster (see 'worst fair I ever attended thread  Wink   ) I decided I needed to act fast and try to make the stall more interesting to pull people over. If nothing else, my 4 children can learn how to milk Marigold ready for when I let them milk my real goats!

wow you are clever!! The goat looks really good, not badly drawn at all.  But how the heck did you manage to make a fake working udder?   :mwaha:  I wouldn't know where to begin!

Seriously it's a great idea, I bet you'll be a real talking point at fairs.  Do let us know how your first outing with Marigold goes!

Great idea! And very resourceul of you - a working udder! That will really get peeps talking and it is so great to use the goat as a way of getting people to know more about your soaps

That is a really cool idea.It's great when people think outside the box. Don't be surprised if people ask if you sell fresh goats milk though.  His/her left but cheek looks a bit swollen though. Cheesy

Ah well that would be handy because I do sell fresh goats milk for puppies and kittens (fostered lambs etc) and ALWAYS have more milk than we know what to do with  Grin
