Why yes I have owned a goat. In fact I have 2 goats right now. Stanley and Snowflake. They are Pygora goats. A cross between A pygmy and an Angora. Fiber goats. They are SO much fun. Inquisitive creatures.

Regarding whales---no that's not a whale in that picture but it sure looks like it could be---for the sake of argument lets say it is. haha!! MB

Oh yes, how fabulous. I was immediately transported to different times in my life when I've owned goats. In Wales and later in Tasmania. I used to milk my own goats in Wales. In Tasmania, they were bred them for their fur. I love goats but you do have to be sure they don't get where they shouldn't else you end up with no garden.

This goat is a beauty. A lovely portrait.

Never owned a goat...he's cute, but he's kinda "in your face", isn't he?

I had THREE goats, in an other life, when I was working in a farm.! Their names were Hortense, Cinnamon (Canelle in French) and Paprika (I'm not joking, that's true!). Also had sheeps..Very good memories!

Sharon said...

What a face! I've never owned one, but I love to watch them!

The best use of owning goats that i have heard of was a couple of years ago when Julie and I spent a long weekend in Sonoma after business in San Francisco. We were driving around to visit wineries and we saw a homemade sign that said "Lavender Festival." We followed the signs on some country roads and came across a farm on a hill top.

The farm was the retirement home of a retired Air Force Colonel. They had fields of lavender, an olive grove, and a vineyard was the next project. In talking to them, they said that when they bought the land it was covered with thistle and it was impossible even to walk across the land.

Their solution? 14 goats. One year later their property was cleared and ready for them to work on building their house, their Italian styled swimming pool, and planting their lavender fields and olive trees.

No, never owned a goat. I've been a scapegoat a few times and have been compared to a billy goat on occasion and have been the goat of a few jokes once in a while...

Our daughter in So. Florida has some goats.

I love this photo, Brattcat...it is entrancing...as if he really liked you and wanted to look as cute as possible when you snapped the shutter.

Re the house in Cedar Key - Sorry, I know nothing about it. It seemed to be boarded up at the time which may mean the owners are snowbirds...

Thanks so much for your comment on Florida Fotos...it made my day!

My uncle had a lot goats.

I guess the question is, do you own a goat?

Boise Diva said...

No goats, but I want a chicken.

Rob and Mandy said...

Ah...no. But when i see this picture, when I see this goat staring at me, I have to think of that movie we saw here last week, Men staring at goats, in spanish: los hombres que miraban fijamente a las cabra (sounds so much better in Spanish!!!), and I shiver. Is this the revenge?

brattcat said...

Clueless, we had a pet goat when our daughters were small. His name was Voltaire. He was very sweet.

Bye,

Serge Cornillet said...

I mean Very good portrait!!!

Julie said...

Been one, not certain if that qualifies!!

Virginia said...

Oh that's about the cutest thing I"ve ever seen. I had a boss once that told me " No one can get your goat if you don't show them where it's tied!" . Truer words were never uttered.

Yes as a matter of fact I have had goats. My first wife fell in love with a nanny goat that constantly got loose and ate the neighbors garden. After reclaiming it from the police station several times she got rid of it. It didn't work out.

Tash said...

Lovable. Or is he or she? Certainly looks it.
Nope, I never owned one...but I have petted some at a petting zoo :/
I also have a funny photo sequence of my grandmother trying to get me to pet a goat when I was 6 or so. I'll have to dig those up.

I owned a little lamb when I was 4 but it broke loose and I never found it again (I used to live downtown, but I had a big garden). It probably got into somebody's oven :-(

It took me a few days to recover from the loss!

So cool! :-)
