Last week you met Faintly – our wee littlest goat, and you saw all of the things in our house that she’s bigger than. (Or not.) You’ll be happy to know that she’s eating well and growing. A bit. How much? Well, she was curious too, so we wrapped her up tightly and took her into the village to see what else she’s “bigger than.”
We’ll post all the things in the village that she’s “bigger than” later this week. But here’s a sneak peek at the people and places Faintly met on her “big” adventure. (Most of the photos – at least the better ones – were taken by our friend Chris Stout-Hazard.)
“Excuse me Brent, will we find something that I’m bigger than?”
“I don’t know Faintly. I hope we can.”
One of our first stops was NBT bank. Faintly thinks she might want to be a teller one day. When she can see over the counter. Did she find anything she was bigger than? You’ll have to tune in later this week.
Special thanks to Volunteer Fire Squad member Stacy Wojciechowski who was kind enough to make a special trip to show Faintly a fire truck. Did she find anything at the fire house that she was bigger than? We’ll see.
Faintly’s new friends at Adelphi Wall Hangings helped her pick out wallpaper designs for the barn. (She went with a mid 18th century Everard Damask.)
Don’t let Faintly’s wee size fool you. She’s quick. Many of the day’s shots turned out like this:
Another stop was the Sharon Springs Free Library where Faintly didn’t make a single peep, earning praise from Library Director Mary Ellen Wolfe. Was she bigger than anything in the Library? Stay tuned.
In the “Kids’ Section” (see what we did there?) of the library we may have found the perfect sized barn for Faintly:
Faintly also met shopkeeper Maureen, from Cobber & Co:
And Tony, from The Black Cat Cafe:
Sometimes Faintly needed a little quiet time between shoots:
Of course Faintly had to stop to say hi to Megan, and tell her all the things she was bigger than. What were they? You’ll have to wait and see.
At the end of the shoot day, she challenged the photographer to an arm wrestling match. She was not bigger than him.
When we got home, Faintly ate and slept much more than usual.
Then again, she dreams bigger than most.
(Faintly went to many more places on her trip, and we’ll share all the pictures of what she found in the village soon.)
