Glorious Goats

30 Sep

I really did enjoy the time I spent with the goats over the weekend, and it’s the first I’ve had a chance to just photograph them all happy and relaxed in a while.  Today, I’m just sharing more goatie bliss.

      It was a wonderful afternoon to just be lazy in pasture! Perfect!

    Love them! It’s quiet around here, now that Jenna’s goats are gone. 😦

      😦 I would never be able to do that. It’s hard enough selling the kids, but I still have my adult herd.

    Love all the poses of your beloved goats. My favourite is Millie – leaning her head near the tree trunk. Just adorable.

      Millie is truly a special girl. 🙂

    These hooved beauties are winsome and all seem to have a personality that is fun as well as active and always seeking the photographer to capture its playful style. I am taken by the ginger colored Runaround Sue, but all of these goats have such a nice nature…

      They all have very distinct personalities. All of these girls are sweet except Lucette. She’s a brat that I can’t get near.:-)

    What exceptional photos of these beautiful goats.

    • Teresa September 30, 2013 at 7:06 pm #

      Thank you so much!

    These are great.

    I love the polkadot on Lucette’s cheek, so cute 🙂 Coral is so grown up… crazy how they are babies one year and the next they have their own!

    • Teresa September 30, 2013 at 8:19 pm #

      It really is amazing how quickly they grow up! Coral is 2 years old now.

    No matter how many goats you have no two personalities are the same! They each have their own personality!

    • Teresa September 30, 2013 at 8:42 pm #

      That is certainly true!

    OMG … I cannot decide on the best model for relaxation and contentment … such expressive beings! However, I believe Blaze wins my heart this go-round! 🙂

      It’s funny to see which goats ham it up for the camera and which ones ignore me and the one that just turns tail and refuses to pose. They are funny!

    Awww….they look so sweet and peaceful, enjoying the warm sunshine!

    • Teresa October 1, 2013 at 6:36 am #

      It really was a perfect day to enjoy the pasture!

  11. Snap October 1, 2013 at 8:26 am #

    they look so happy and relaxed and enjoying the weekend, too!


    • Teresa October 1, 2013 at 8:34 am #

      We all had a great time out in the pasture this weekend!

    Your precious goats brought cheer and a smile today – they are very adorable.

    • Teresa October 1, 2013 at 9:53 am #

      Thanks, Patty. They always make me smile.

    They are so photogenic! What wonderful subjects they made for this post.

    • Teresa October 1, 2013 at 1:22 pm #

      It never ceases to amaze me the way some goats just vamp for the camera!

  14. Nancy @ A Rural Journal October 2, 2013 at 6:36 am #

    Love them all, but Blaze is my favorite today. xo

    • Teresa October 2, 2013 at 6:39 am #

      Blaze is quite the sweet girl!
