Copy Goats

Crybaby - tallest goat so she is able to graze on some particularly tasty oak tree leaves by raising herself a few inches balancing on some poles in the pen. Nobody else paying any attention








Oops - Bubbles sees Crybaby eating something and attempts to reach it - but too short and not standing on the poles.
















Hey what are Crybaby and Bubbles doing over there?















Let's try to get some of those leaves - yep - let's ALL try to get some leaves.

















Crybaby continues to eat - nobody else gets leaves but they all tried!








Photo essay on why I always carry a camera when I go out to mess with my goats - they make us laugh here on Buhlaland - and that is always good!

Dear One,
Fun to see these pics.

They are very clever goats, especially the one being sucessful munching tender leaves.

Have a sweet week,

Do they always copy each other? The pics were great keep it up.

They DO copy each other most of the time - that whole "herd" mentality thing rings true for goats quite consistently. Always seem concerned one will get a tasty bit another didn't find.
Goats are funny - one big reason we keep them around.
Thanks for commenting y'all -

*LOL* It always amazes me how they can stretch their bodies like that! I guess you do what you have to do, huh?
(If someone held a donut over my head, I would definitely be stretching up to reach it! *giggle*)
