The wooly goat

The kind owner of some black ewes and their cute lambs gave us permission to go onto her property to take photos.  But once I got there I had eyes only for the shaggy goat.  He was easily tempted over to the fence for a rub and some freshly pulled grass that Chris found for him.




I don't know if putting his head on this angle helped him to see us better.  Maybe he was just striking a pose.


How he managed to see where he was going is a mystery but he was very sure footed.
