Gullringstorp Goats & Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap Tour


Today, June 22, 2013 is Midsummer Day. Here in Sweden, it’s normally a day to relax after all the family and friends, time spent eating and drinking snaps. Every now and again there is a special activity planned for the day.

A customer of Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap, requested a soap-making tour. We have had people come often to visit the goats. No one has requested a real tour. I put together a very informative tour starting with our goats and goat care. I not only supplied items that we use daily or need to have on hand for our goats, but to add to the talk were photos of events that could not be shown on this day. Here are topics that were covered:

  • Goat nutrition
  • Medications, when needed
  • Winter considerations
  • Maternity
  • Milking
  • Goat “Meet & Greet” in the enclosure

After the first portion of the tour was completed, we went into the workshop( Leif’s) and had the Soap-Making presentation. There was much to discuss and no real need for photos because everything was right there to see and touch. Here are topics that were covered :

  • Safety Equipment
  • Natural Botanicals
  • Natural Colorants
  • Natural Essential Oils
  • Natural Butters and Oils
  • Utensils Used
  • Molds
  • Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap Products were on display for purchase

Because of where our guests stood, they were able to see our goats run into the enclosure and leap and frolic as they always do. They were able to watch them eating and playing and falling back into their family units.

Ballet Shoes


As you all know, I am a City Girl turned Country Gal who still enjoys the pleasures of the city. One pleasure is Ballet.

For all my viewers who have enjoyed my posts about ballet  and all my new viewers, I have found a really informative short video about ballet shoes. There will be new information for many and familiar information for others.

I hope you enjoy as I did:

 

 


Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap Attends Another Market in the Swedish Countryside


This was a tiny Handcrafts Market nestled in a beautiful wooded area of the Swedish countryside not far from home. We arrived early so we could get the “lay of the land” and choose our spot that would highlight Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap table. In the end, I was quite happy with our choice. I love cozy nooks  and I found one nestled up next to a lovely little wooden building. I felt quite happy in our little space.

Everyone was  worried about the weather and prayed it would not rain. It became a joke that if it rained, everyone would have to take a bath with all my soap getting wet.

It was a lovely Market and we had a great day!

We were in the woods...

A common Swedish thing is to have a lottery at events and house parties. Well, Leif bought us two tickets and when I opened mine, it was #27. I was 27 whenI had my daughter so this was a lucky number even at the Marknad. I WON!!!

New Mommies and Babies go into the Large Enclosure for the First Time Part II


I know I promised to post about the mommies and babies yesterday , but yesterday was huckleberry’s surgery. He was castrated yesterday because he will remain at Gullringstorp and with his mother Poppy. I made a promise to my first goat Frida, that I would allow her to keep all her babies born here at Gullringstorp. Frida passed away July last year, but that promise still holds. Her daughters, Keriana, Poppy and Pansy will always have their babies with them. Little Huckleberry will not be one of our breeding bucks but remain with Poppy and the other does.

He is doing quite well after his procedure after a slow day yesterday. By the time the goats were brought back into the stable, last evening,  he was up and playing as usual. I will not be his friend for the next 7 days. He’s not going to like me at all.  I have to give him Penicillin injections every day for the next 7 days. This is to insure there is no infection after the procedure.

Today is a rainy day so no one is out in the enclosure. All are in and the babies are fussy because they really enjoy playing out in the enclosure. Hopefully it will be better tomorrow.

Here are the mommies and babies having a great time in the enclosure:

New Mommies and Babies go into the Large Enclosure for the First Time


Our new little families have enjoyed the big outdoors in the large enclosure for 2 days now. It was quite wonderful watching them run , leap, and jump all around. The babies were so very happy with their new found freedom.  As they found each other and realized they had new playmates, they soon forgot about mommy. But although the mommies were busy eating all the grass they could fit in their mouths, they never lost sight of their babies. There was much chatter going on in our enclosure. Mommies speaking to their babies from great distances with the cute responses from tiny mouths from every direction in the enclosure.

After viewing our empty paddocks for several years, it is just a delight to look and see such life and happiness and sometimes drama in our paddocks. I always have my Canon slung over one shoulder and iPhone in my pocket when I am with my goats. You can never tell what you might see.

Because I have so many photos, today will be babies only:

Sweden’s Royal Wedding of Princess Madeleine


While  I was attending an event in Österbymo,  displaying my company Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap,  there was a very different event happening yesterday,  in Stockholm. Our Princess Madeline was having a Royal Swedish wedding to her beloved Christopher O’Neil. Another beautiful  fairy-tale wedding in Sweden.

London’s Royal Ballet and the Ballet World Bids Farewell to Alina Cojocaru and Johan Kobborg


Last evening was the final performance of two of the Royal Ballet’s shining dancers. The two principal dancers performed in Mayerling with such depth and feeling as never before experienced on the Royal Ballet’s stage.  My daughter had purchased her ticket months ago and has enjoyed many Mayerling ballets this season. I was lucky enough to be able to see one in April with Edward Watson, dancing the lead Prince Rudolph. His performance was spectacular and he received something we have never experienced in all the years we have been attending the ballet; foot stomping in the audience at curtain calls. The sound reverberated within us  all. Wow.

I just can’t imagine the emotion flowing through that theater last evening. Oh, I can guarantee you there were tears in that audience last evening. My daughter always gives me interval calls at the intermissions for updates. She was without words for the experience she was having. Johan gave 150% in his role and that was only the first Act. This ballet is very demanding and one needs to pace themselves for what’s to come. It sounds like there was no pacing last evening. John just kept coming like a freight train with emotion, speed, and precision. Oh how I wish I had been there, but thanks to my daughter’s calls, I felt  as if I were.

At curtain call, the two principal dancers were honored with the flower toss. This is the highest accolade that can be bestowed on a dancer at a performance. Oh to have been a fly on those walls!

This loss is not completely understood by many, at this time. It is rocking the ballet world and anyone who have seen either of these magnificent dancers, is feeling the loss, deeply.

Two Principal Dancers to Leave Royal Ballet

By ALLAN KOZINN
Mr. Kobborg and Ms. Cojocaru performing in Andrea Mohin/The New York Times Mr. Kobborg and Ms. Cojocaru performing in “Romeo and Juliet” with the American Ballet Theater in New York in 2012.

Alina Cojocaru and Johan Kobborg, two of most admired principal dancers on the roster of the Royal Ballet, in London, announced on Monday that they would leave the company at the end of the current season. Their final performance at the Royal Opera House will be in “Mayerling” on Wednesday, although they will remain with the company for a visit to Japan, with performances in Tokyo on July 11 and 12.

Ms. Cojocaru, 34, was born in Bucharest, trained in Kiev, and joined the Royal Ballet in 1999. Mr. Kobborg, a Danish dancer, joined the company in 1991 and became a principal dancer in 1994. The two first worked together in 2001, when Ms. Cojocaru filled in for an ailing Miyako Yoshida in a production of “Romeo and Juliet,” in which Mr. Kobborg was dancing Romeo. That collaboration was the start of a storied partnership onstage and off, and that year Ms. Cojocaru was named a principal dancer.

Their work at the company has not been uneventful. In 2008, Ms. Cojocaru was seriously injured when she was handled awkwardly in a lift, but she was dancing again the following season. That same year, there was talk of Mr. Kobborg succeeding Monica Mason as the company’s director, when she stepped down in 2012, although in the event, Kevin O’Hare was appointed to the position.

The two have danced with other companies, including the American Ballet Theater, with increasing frequency in recent seasons. In 2012, John Neumeier’s “Liliom,” which had its premiere at the Hamburg Ballet, was created for Ms. Cojocaru, who won the Prix Benois de la Danse for her portrayal of the lead role.

“We have had wonderful experiences with the Royal Ballet over the years, and feel fortunate to have worked alongside so many inspiring artists,” Ms. Cojocaru and Mr. Kobborg said in a statement.

Alina Cojocaru and Johan Kobborg have announced they will leave The Royal Ballet at the end of the 2012/13 season to pursue other artistic challenges. Their last performance at the Royal Opera House as members of The Royal Ballet will be in Mayerling on 5 June. They will fulfil their touring engagement with the Company with their scheduled performances on 10 and 12 July in Tokyo. They will both continue dancing and will shortly announce their future plans.

Kevin O’Hare, Director of The Royal Ballet, said:

‘Alina and Johan have given many memorable performances as members of The Royal Ballet both at the Royal Opera House and around the world. Over the past ten years I have greatly enjoyed watching their unique partnership develop, as I know our audiences have, and I wish them every success in the next phase of their careers.’

Alina Cojocaru and Johan Kobborg joined The Royal Ballet in 1999. Speaking about their decision to leave the Company, they said:

‘We have had wonderful experiences with The Royal Ballet over the years and feel fortunate to have worked alongside so many inspiring artists. We wish Kevin O’Hare and The Royal Ballet’s  dancers and staff all the best for the future and would like to thank our loyal and supporting audience for sharing many magical moments with us.’

Farewell Alina And Johan. Thank you for all the wonderful experiences.


A Brave Fan Asks Patrick Stewart A Question He Doesn’t Usually Get And Is Given A Beautiful Answer


I found this post and was vey moved. I had recently read an interview Patrick Stewart had given and read what he revealed of his own past. It is so important to understand the root causes and find ways to eliminate domestic violence. This is an issue that needs our attention and intervention. No matter what the cause, there needs to be treatment and this has to end.

As a woman and mother of a daughter, I would never want this to happen to myself or my daughter. It should not happen to another mother, daughter, sister, friend or any woman or child.
Thank you Patrick Stewart for speaking out and for your involvement !

Before I knew Patrick Stewart as Professor X, I remember him as a starfleet commander on the Enterprise. Star Trek. It was one of the few things my father and I shared, next to Xena the Warrior Princess. Well, it was just something I would watch with him. Either way, I’d recognize him and his bald head anywhere – and that’s not an insult, mind you. But I was like 5 or 6 or 7, what’s a little girl got to know. And then there was his assistant whom I called Powder Face – I googled his name yesterday but I forgot again. Was it ‘Date”? “Data”? The android anyways.

I’m going besides the point. A couple of days ago, I saw a post about P.S eating pizza for the first time and this morning I found this post. It talks about domestic violence, specifically to women. And he shares…

Happy Chickens and Roosters at Gullringstorp


Oh how our chickens and roosters are so happy that winter is over. They are enjoying being out of the hen house . Not only do they have their own yard to enjoy, but they also have recently been enjoying the back play yard with Pumpkin and her daughters. They are eating their grain, and whatever goodies I place on the “table”.  Eugene is our beautiful Brahma rooster, Bojangles is our Black Netherlands Whitehead rooster. Then there is our fluffy buff Orpington rooster with no name because we thought he was a hen for so long.They are so much fun to watch.

Updates from the Nursery at Gullringstorp June 1, 2013


Our babies are growing bigger everyday and are just too cute for words. they are still allocated to the baby play yards, but will soon be ready to go into the large enclosure with all the other goats. In the meantime, its our job to make their play yard experience as fun as possible. Because our mothers are unable to browse or graze, I need to forage for them and bring them all back buckets of yummy greens. They get their greens either outside of their boxes or in, all depending where they are when I decide to go foraging.

We have had a major change and I am so very happy with the success of it. I have moved Rose out from her box and into Nanna’s. This way Pumpkin and her two long-legged baby girls can enjoy the entire box. The fence is down! What’s even better is that this is the only goat that Nanna has accepted into her little private suite. Nanna always gives the impression that she is happy alone in her box but I also have gotten the feeling from time to time that she needed company. We have tried several different combinations and in the end Nanna was never happy with any of my choices. Nanna and Rose are doing so well together and it’s been a week now. I am so happy! Pumpkin and  her daughters Violet and Willow are really enjoying the extra room in their box.

Our babies have even been introduced to each other, under supervision. I have no issues with the babies, but the mothers are not ready to be nice to the other babies or mothers yet. It will come. Anyway, the babies were happy to see and meet other babies.

I am so pleased with the development of out wee ones. They are growing and inquisitive just as they should be. All are happy and energetic.
