Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Pointy things


Over the last week I have been lucky enough to visit the Farm. One of the lovely animals raised on this farm are goats. Very friendly (possibly because we brought food), quirky and curious beyond belief.

What do these have to do with “Pointy Things” well they have horns and when interrupted from their food, they use them to shove others away.

For this photo I got down to the goats level for a better view and when one of them looked quizzically at me I got the shot I wanted. Two of the clan were hand raised and are twins. They are some of the youngest there but always come up to us for a pat and more attention. Mistakenly patting their heads near their horns seems to be a bit of a threat and the end result was a warning of an almost head but with these horns.ย  I learnt quickly to pat their necks instead…
