Meet Vincent, the Inspiration

I talk about him all all the time, but I should probably actually introduce you to our goat, Vincent van Goat. He is the star of three picture book manuscripts I am preparing for submission.

If you were meeting in person he would nibble your clothes and expect a treat. Peanut butter filled pretzels are his favorite. And yes, he really is interested in painting.

We let our goats out of the pasture when we are outside working. They are very curious.

Developing Vincent as a character wasn’t hard at all. So much of what I write is very true to him.

We adopted Vincent and Pi in May of 2018. We dreamed of having goats for years and we love having these cuties. Their previous owners had given them these names and we love them!IMG_7179

But no one loves them more than my 1 year-old daughter. They are so sweet to her.
