Happy New Year

Happy New Year, everyone!

Oh you think I’m a bit late? Okay, let’s be more specific: Happy Chinese New Year!

See, I’m entirely up to date! Sadly, we say good bye to the year of the horse (I love horses!) and welcome the year of the sheep, the ram, or goat! (I love all those creatures as well.)

So what is it, the year of the sheep or the goat? It might not be a big difference in the Chinese horoscope, but let me tell you, here on the farm it’s a big difference.

I mean, look at them: Do they look alike? They even speak different dialects, which upsets the sheep…

Whatever animal you choose it is, may it be a happy and prosperous year for you. May it be cheeky and mischievous as the goat would choose, or peaceful, soft and calm like the sheep; make it your best year ever! (And if you forgot about your new year’s resolutions earlier in the year, well, I guess you got a second chance…) Cheers! To YOU!
