As most of you know, I’m from East Tennessee (just spend a little time with me, you’ll hear it!). I was born in Elizabethton, my MeeMaw was from Mountain City … Roan Mountain has always been a special place to me.
Tuned in the Nashville’s NPT this morning, Tennessee Wild Side was coming on as we waited for the coffee .. thought this segment was going to be either about Watauga Lake or the giant rhodendrons. maybe Iron Mountain or the Appalachian Trail. Much to my surprise it revealed this magnificent story of preservation, goats and Great Prys (Click here for the link to the show.!
Frankly I usually skip Tennessee’s Wild Side because I’m not a great outdoor girl … my idea of camping at it’s worst is a new Holiday Inn. Watched this segment and haven’t been able to quit thinking about it all day. Just made me proud, the work they are doing to preserve those sacred spaces on Roan Mountain.
Bottom line, Ewe & Company is adopting a goat (or 2), perchance a dog … if you’d like to participate with a donation, please send us a message on our Facebook page … (so you can be included in the goat-naming contest)!
(PS … Baa-chus is adopting a dog!)
Will reply to Facebook but want you to know you have my donation for one of each

Glenna, I just saw the video and read your posting on adopting the Roan Goat. I kind of jumped the gun before saying I”d adopt a goat and dog. I didn”t realize that you were doing it as a store project. So, I”ll contribute whatever you come up with. Thanks, Susan
