This is our favorite local Nativity display:
The kids were small when we first started to visit. The barn had only that central portion and the fence was post-and-rail, making for some interesting goat/child finger interaction. That didn’t happen much because the goats were busy chewing on the clothing of the mannequins. Now the central characters are behind goat-proof wire and the whole thing has been enlivened by the addition of baby goats who spend their time jumping on and off the donkey’s back. We suspect that the wise man with the heavy beard is a lady mannequin but we can’t prove it. Also, I’m not really sure where Joseph is in this scene. Is he kneeling next to the manger wearing a black vest? Or is he standing behind Mary draped in a brown cloak?
