Secrets of Stage Magic — Revealed!

Few illusions are as classic and breathtaking as the “pulling a baby goat out of a hat” trick. In this lesson, we’ll concentrate on how to conceal the goat so that you may slip it into the hat undetected. For this, it is important to select a goat that can fit entirely into the palm of the hand…

Magically adorable, Judy S.

    Right now the cute involves watching my preggo goats getting chubbier and starting to develop very adorable mini udders ;)

  44. Fird Birfle says:

    *Begins the Jealous (but happy) for old goatlady List*
