Oh my oh my oh my. This would be my first experience ever to write to the Great Santa Claus.  I am but a wee goat, although not so wee as I once was.  Oh my how skinny and weak I was, indeed.  But I have found such great friends everywhere I go: the very fine and good-looking veterinary students at the hospital, not to mention the surgeons; the young people who come at the weekend to tend to me and my friends; the people who come outside, no matter the weather, and feed and water us, and make sure we are comfy cozy. But most of all I want to say how much I love grandfather Madison, the sheep (though he claims he identifies as a buffalo, and so I believe him, that I do). He is so very old and has seen so very much, and I learn from him every day.  He also thinks I smell quite good (though the humans have nothing good to say about my odor… you see I have yet to be, well, ah, fixed).

My dear Great Santa, I have many needs, I do. My daily medical routines requires so many types of bandages, and it is becoming quite a hardship for my dear people here to purchase them. Might I ask you to send some of these badly needed supplies?  It is not a fun gift but it is so very vital to my continued recovery. Here is the long list!

Yes, it’s a big daily process but I am so very very good about it, that I am!

This is another thing we need in the infirmary.  I live there full time right now, but I hope to soon graduate to be able to go out with the goats. Especially Caroline.  Caroline is a very very comely maiden.  OK, so we need a whiteboard so that we can keep track of our schedule, our medicine, and so on: https://tinyurl.com/whiteboard-for-gilly

Did you know I need a sponsor? I am a wonderful animal to sponsor, because I’m so friendly and nice, and because, well, I do owe the farm a big favor for covering my (very, “OMG so expensive” as they put it, hospital bill.)  Thanks to all and one! https://shop.stargazingfarm.org/product/sponsor-gilbert/

Many blessings to you and your family, my Great Mr. Claus.
