High Reaches Nubians

Karen GoatKeeper welcomes you to this website, home of GoatKeepers Press.

The Rains Begin!

Is the drought over? I don’t know. Is it raining? Yes, finally.

Rain plus warmer temperatures equal growing plants. Botany season is beginning again.

This is a problem as I am still trying to finish up pictures from last season. I did all the easy ones. Now I am looking over the hard ones: sunflowers, beggar ticks, asters.

As spring approaches, you are losing the opportunity to see the trees without their leaves. Many trees have distinctive shapes only visible over the winter.

And, no, the flu isn’t really gone. It is and it isn’t. The flu is gone. The coughing and the exhaustion hang on for weeks.

Spring gets closer each day gone by. It’s now 7 days to March.

Are You planning for Spring Planting?

Pumpkins are fun to grow, fun to experiment with, fun to read about, fun to work puzzles about.


The Pumpkin Project

Check out a book dedicated to pumpkin lovers to find out why pumpkins are so great.

Purchasing Books

Buying anything on line can be risky. Security is a big issue. I am not knowledgeable enough to provide this. So, any book purchase from my site is handled by other secure sites: Amazon, Kindle or Smashwords.

Check out the book pages, read the sample pages. Clicking on the Buy Buttons will take you to the appropriate place to purchase the book.

That leaves the pdf versions for my three nonfiction books: Exploring the Ozark Hills; Goat Games; and The Pumpkin Project. These are $2.99 each. Anyone wanting a copy of these needs to email me from the contact page. We can make arrangements through PayPal.

Ozark Hills begins botany season by stalking the willows. Which willow is which? I wish I knew.

Updates are normally done on Wednesday afternoons. This is subject to weather or disaster delays.

Find Me On:


Visit me at: http://www.pinterest.com/karengoatkeeper. I try to keep up with nine boards on nature, my books, country living, gardening, my cats, my goats and the science projects. Take care or you may spend hours browsing as Pinterest is a very interesting place to visit.


Visit me at: Goodreads. It is a great place to meet new authors, established authors and people who like to read.

The Pumpkin Project by Karen GoatKeeper

The Project Corner and Outside Project are discontinued. If anyone is interested in any of the Projects, write me. I do have all of them and will be glad to send you a copy.

Goat Galleries

My Goat and Kid galleries are again in need of updating. Sigh. The goats are camera shy, chores are numerous, the weather is turning cold. Excuses.
