He was one of those goats that you 'adopt', that then go on to be part of the nucleus of a breeding herd in a developing country.  Goats are like any other mammal -- in order to produce milk, a female goat has to have a kid every year or so.  And in a third world country, that means a real he-goat instead of a visit from the Artificial Insemination service.

You mean the bride price was a donation to the Heifer Project?

That is SO COOL.

Yes.  I couldn't remember the name.  

The cows are sitting on the shelf in my bedroom.  3 stuffed toy cows, about 6" tall.  They were brought in as part of the groom's procession to the front, carried by our 3 youngest grandchildren.  Sil also threw in a chest of glass "jewels" and chocolate "coins".  

And as a dowry, Elfqueen received a chest full of sewing and tailoring equipment.

She's already posted this pic and link in another thread, so I don't think she'll mind here:



And her wedding thread, with pics:

Agreed- objection withdrawn!
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

I don't think it was the Heifer Project specifically but it was a similar organization.

What a great idea!  Somebody alert OffBeat Bride--they'd be all over this!
William wondered why he always disliked people who said "no offense meant." Maybe it was because they found it easier to say "no offense meant" than actually to refrain from giving offense.

Dang straight.  I'd be all over this if I was getting married again.  I love, love Heifer International (assuming this is the org).

Someone will always sniff at the way a wedding is arranged, but i wonder if the OP was the same person who compained about  wedding they had attended with no bridesmaids, the MOB and MOG in simple summer dresses, the bride wearing a wax hair ornament that was yellowed with age, because it had been her grandmother's, and a reception with no booze, no music, and only a sheet cake instead of a traditional cake.

E-hellions reactions were much the same to that person, that it's about having what you want, that you don'tahve to have yards of attendants, and morning dress, that booze and a three tiered cake are not obligatory, and how nice to honour Grandma's memory by wearing the hair ornament that she wore.

Heh, I actually wouldn't mind attending a wedding like that... sounds interesting, anyway.
The only disgusting behaviour I saw was on behalf of the guest.
