The Wether Report

There is a strict rule against wethers here.

I was just telling Gilbert, my LaMancha wether, about it. “The problem with wethers is┬áthat they are the lilies of the valley. They toil not, and neither do they spin.”

Gilbert did not respond; his mouth was full.gilbert_post_1200w

“And they also eat a lot.”

Anyway no one offered to buy Gilbert except a guy named Jose in Burien whose only question was – how much does he weigh? Always a tipoff. Since Gilbert is friendly and handsome and likely to be enormous when grown, and since by this time he had ingratiated himself with me using his LaMancha personality, I did not want him to become the guest of honor at a cabrito party.

And in any case I had been thinking about getting back into goatpacking. So I dragged the old pack out of the hayloft where it had been sitting for years, covered with dust.

“You are going to have to do some toiling, Gilbert,” I told him. “And maybe some spinning.”

Gilbert did not respond; his mouth was full.

Packgoat club now forming. Inquire within.
