My children and I recently went to a county fair. They had many animal barns where the you could see and pet all the animals. This goat really caught our eye, in the midst of all the noise and commotion, he was peacefully sleeping on another goat. We couldn't help but think he was smiling!! He looked so peaceful and cozy.
Vincent Van Goat is approximately 1 year old. He is a La Mancha (earless breed) goat. We rescued him from an animal shelter when he was a baby.
He likes to sneak into the tackroom and eat cat food. He's a delightful creature with a wonderful sense of humor!

Jilly Goat is about 8 years old. She is mostly Angora. Jilly was given to us from a friend about a year ago. She loves being petted, eating, and playing with her pal, Itty Bitty (another goat).
Jilly is full of personality! There is a misconception that goats eat anything and are cranky. Perhaps some are, but not Jilly! She is particular about what she eats, and loves most people. I love spending time with Jilly who always brightens up my day!
Meet Patches and Mary, two of three of my grandparents' goats. Patches and Mary are both a few years old. Mary's been in the competition before, but this is Patches' first time.
Foster Freeze is a 3 month old goat we got from friends. He hangs out with the dogs and my horse. Foster loves being with people. He will come into the house lay down and sleep.
George and Snap are Pygmy/Fainting Goats. I bought George and Snap when I saw a sign posted at the local tractor supply store. We bought them to save money on gas for mowing by letting them eat the grass, we have 25 acres.
This is a goat that lives down the railroad tracks from my house. My niece and I walk down to the goats and feed them grass and flowers every now and then.
The goat was posing for me to take photos. She was really showing off. LOL
(Billy Goat) Gruff was born on August 2, 2007. He is a newborn Pygmy/Fainting Goat. Snap the Pygmy mom finally had her kid on Thursday. Gruff loves to jump and play already.
She was born August 13th. She likes to wander around and eat. She is a calmer goat than the other three, also she is a small goat.

Mary is a 7 year old Pygmy goat. When I was in high school, my mother ran a daycare service out of our country home. Two little girls, who she watched, lived just down the road from us.
And for no particular reason, here is a goat wearing a hat. This goat appeared at my local library's annual lawn sale.
