🙂 I would not be able to do anything else on the farm, just hang out with the baby goats all day.

They’re a nice distraction. Fortunately this isn’t a very busy time of year. 🙂
Because baby goats, indeed …. what sweetness …
For sure they’re pretty darn cute. 🙂
They are sooooo cute! ❤
They always are, but this bunch is especially cute I think.
Curious little dudes, aren’t they! I love that last picture, the light hooded one peeking around the tree watching you.
It’s hard to get a good picture of them when they’re playing in a mob, because it’s hard to get anything but their backsides. I liked that one too, since 3 out of the 5 were looking at me.
Do goats stick their tongues out when they’re happy? There’s are a lot of tongue-sticker-outers in your crew, including mama, in that first photo. I’m tempted to just sit here and look at them instead of turning on the news. Maybe I will.
Along those same lines, what do they do with their tails? I notice some up, some down… are they like a dog, wagging when happy?
I’ve honestly never paid much attention to that. They wag their tails when they’re nursing. Normally I think their tails stick up. I’m going to have to watch them more carefully now to figure out if there is any pattern.
News, what news? Seems to be all the same for hundreds, thousands of years. Linda, I can see your cat getting a tongue-sticker-outer buddy soon. 🙂
Scott, you got me curious, so first I thought maybe the ones with tails up were pooping, but looks like they are a lot like dogs, see here: http://www.whisperingtalesgoats.com/didyouknow.htm
That guy in the last pic with tail down looks like he’s been caught in crime scene, a little scared of the photographer.
Actually they don’t stick out their tongues a lot. I just got lucky with those shots.
Unfortunately this is turning out to be not a good day to read the news. I’m glad to provide a baby goat alternative.
Bill, goat blog posts are always a hit with us. The cuteness is soothing to the soul. I can imagine that the factor is multiplied 100 fold to see them live and up close. It’s definitely something you couldn’t experience being a lawyer. 🙂
Have a great watching the kids day.
We do enjoy kidding season. But surprisingly my baby goat posts don’t draw nearly as much traffic as when I editorialize on something. Posts like this one will have about half as many views and visitors as “normal” posts. But that’s OK by me. Some days I just want to share pictures of kids.
Love the coloring.I especially love the one with its tongue sticking out. So very, very cute.
His coloring is very unusual, which has made him a popular guy here. He has one white leg and it is fuzzy, unlike the rest of his body which is more slick.
A darling kid!
He also appears to have a “ridge” of hair down his spine which I don’t(or can’t?) see on any of the others… He seems a very thoughtful little fellow: )
Yes, thank you. Cuteness is very necessary today.
goat number five is camouflaged (against fallen tree, ancient) and seems to be logging – its goals.
They love playing on that log.
After feeling my blood pressure rise, reading the news; the goat photos were a happy antidote to it all.
They have that effect on me too.
And why not! 🙂
I could post pictures of kids every day, but that would probably be overdoing it.
Lol! Probably. I often wonder how many pictures of alpacas eating grass can I post
Few baby animals seem to have as much personality as baby goats it seems to me. Thanks for sharing, Bill. –Curt
They are playful and curious. Goats are much like dogs, with individual personalities.
So cute! I absolutely love baby goats. Thanks for sharing.
Glad you enjoyed the photos. It’s hard to resist taking pictures when I’m in the pasture. A better photographer would have a field day. Literally.
Why not? The world’s a better place when we can enjoy pure and simple cute 🙂
I agree. Sometimes we just need to celebrate something cute. 🙂
Always my favorites 🙂
They’re a photogenic lot, even at the hands of a poor photographer like me. 🙂
Well, I wouldn’t agree with that. You take great pics. But, yes, this subject is particularly hard to get a bad photo of 🙂
