Spindle???

what is a spindle and why did my human get one? it's probably some torture device for use on goats. i saw her looking at alot of strange things online. im worried. then yesterday i heard her say, "i feel an urgency in the air, something is coming, i can feel it". what the heck does that mean? what's coming? i think she has gone off the deep end. maybe she got some bad feed? hmm maybe i should take a closer look at the pills the doctor gave her. one of them might be affecting her ability to think straight. maybe a good whack over the head will fix this. i think i mentioned that the other day. i could head butt her, thats how goats solve things.

Dear Gerald,
A spindle is for spinning wool. Yes, I know, this worries you. It can be used to spin rabbit fur (angora), goat hair (mohair), sheep's wool, alpaca or llama fleece, even dog fur, if one is predisposed to that sort of thing. Yes, your lady has been bitten by the spinning bug. However, a spindle is actually, in my opinion, more difficult to use than a spinning wheel, so she will tire of it quickly, throw it across the room, and come outside to feed you peanuts. Take my word for it. No worries mate.

Dear Gerald,
I feel I should let you know that the spinning bug is a bit of a troublesome thing, in that it will not relent. Your lady is likely to begin schemes, plots and other nefarious things in order to afford a spinning wheel. They come up from time to time on Craig's List you know. Or, she could get one from a local spinning guild when someone upgrades you see. So, just be forewarned. But, then you might get some angora goats that you could supervise, you see, putting you into a position of great leadership, befitting one such as yourself. Then you could be Gerald the Great Leader Goat.

Phew! We thought you might be getting a close shave so the human could make herself a jumper from your coat. You probably shouldn't whack her over the head though, she sounds accident prone enough without your help.
Hmm, Majestic Leader sounds a fitting title for you.
