We went to a zoo today and it has a petting zoo. Emilie met her first goats about a month ago at a working, educational farm. I think after today, she may be disallowed in the petting zoo again! :eek:

There was lots of hugging going on, some re-hugging and 2 attempted naps! Poooooor goats! :rolleyes:

How many hugs do you see?

Emilie is very excited to be back amongst goats! And for anyone concerned, she's NOT sunburned, just hot. Her pediatrician say she's so fair, she's see-through. :tongue:

A cute 5-day old that I wouldn't let her molest.

I really dropped the ball here. As she was hugging this goat, it managed to walk away and she was left in mid-air bent over. :smile:

Sometimes, you have to seek out your goats under rabbit pens.

If they won't be hugged, then try honking their horns!

I think I'll just add myself to this pile of goats (and sneak in a hug!)

Boy that goat hugging is tiring! I better take a nap!

These goats seemed to actually enjoy their hugs. She also attempted to head-butt one, but I missed the shot. Staff, meanwhile, got a huge laugh out of her antics. :smile:

Thanks!! :smile:

I was impressed with how tolerant the goats were considering that many were QUITE pregnant and the heat of the day (to which none of the animals are yet acclimated).

What fun shots. Goats and kids (both types) are such a joy. Like Dave I am a former goat owner. Actually they belonged to my former wife. Before you purchase.
1. Consider lens lust
2. Consider 90 degrees, 100% RH, your head in a goat's udder and 10000 flies not eager to be photographed.

If not enjoy. :smile:

I did not realize flies were camera shy!! :eek: That could be an issue. :frown:

I love it! Great serie :biggrin:
Thanks Dude!!! :smile:

Emilie shows a natural love and respect of animals. We've also been working hard on "all dogs are not to be hugged" so that she's not running up to stranger's dogs and hugging them. Part nature, part nurture! :tongue:

Great photos, Kids just love to hug goats.
Hhahahaha......right up there with jumping in puddles, eh? :smile:

Great fun to watch! I already enjoyed your first series but this one really proves Emilie has a special relationship with goats. :biggrin:
Thank you Daniel! I think she loves anything with fur!! :smile:
