Just Some Goats

17 May

It was a nice but breezy day to join the goats in pasture.

I love seeing them out here eating, scratching, and snoozing.

Whenever I’m out here taking pictures, it never fails that I get a real close look at Marley. (Hope it’s close enough to macro.)  It’s a good thing he’s a sweet boy.

I think he’s handsome.  No wonder his boy, Fionn, is such a good looking guy too.

I have to say, my favorite thing to see is those sweet mother/kid bonding moments.

    And I think you are amazing for having such a love for these creatures and sharing it with us! Goats are under rated.

      They really do not get the respect they deserve. Thanks so much for your kind words.

    Awww, such sweet, precious pictures. Like you, I love the mommas and offspring bonding ones really well.

      Thanks, Eileen. You too!

    I am able to get goat milk, so I appreciate your goat photos, I don’t know if someday I will have any goats, but they look like special animals. I wonder if the horns get in the way of snuggling sometimes, so I like the last photo with the kid putting his head between the mother’s horns.

    • Teresa May 18, 2015 at 6:47 am #

      Glad you get that delicious milk! Horns are actually pretty convenient handles. Not much of a problem snuggling.

  8. Ah these are all so sweet but especially the last two!!

    • Teresa May 18, 2015 at 7:54 am #

      Thanks. Those mom/kid shots are always my favorites.

    ahhh, how fun to have these cuties around. I love the TAIL COUNT pic…LOL

    • Teresa May 18, 2015 at 7:55 am #

      I’ve already got my 2016 Tail Count picture ready to go!

  10. TexWisGirl May 18, 2015 at 7:44 am #

    those are precious.

    I love your goat pics!! Someone told me I should get goats to clean out my old ugly roses. Wouldn’t that hurt their throats? Especially like the pic of the two goats snuggled close. So cute!

    • Teresa May 18, 2015 at 7:56 am #

      They love roses. They kill them by eating just the leaves. You’d have to remove the dead branches eventually. They’ve done a great job on cleaning up my pasture.

  12. Mama Zen May 18, 2015 at 10:44 am #

    Those last two are so precious!

  13. Mary Ann Yoder May 18, 2015 at 11:22 am #

    Your goats are beautiful!

    • Teresa May 18, 2015 at 11:31 am #

      Thanks. I thought it might just be me that thought that. 😉

  14. Gattina May 18, 2015 at 11:32 am #

    Goats seem to have the right idea!

  16. Pat May 18, 2015 at 5:31 pm #

    These are wonderful shots.

    What neat scenes! I thought of you today. We went to a blueberry winery and they had goats and the cutest goat crossing signs. I’ll do a post soon! lol Hugs, Diane

    Such beautiful goats!

    • Teresa May 18, 2015 at 8:13 pm #

      Thanks. I do love them.

  19. judith@Lavender Cottage May 18, 2015 at 7:36 pm #

    From a distance, macro or showing a loving mom with an offspring brings me joy to see your goats. The last two photos are precious Teresa.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

    • Teresa May 20, 2015 at 7:45 am #

      Thanks. That huge family bond is one of the things I find endearing about the goats.
