Barnyard Goat

It's been another long time since I posted, summer has been crazy busy with trips and grandkids but a great summer!  I was visiting my daughter in California in the spring when I snapped this photo of the goat.  I knew there were goats at this home outside her neighborhood from previous trips so I made a point to go back and see if I could get photos.  To my surprise there was a whole family of goats and this white one who seemed so friendly.  He/she tried to come close but unfortunately there is a big gully full of brush and stuff between the walking path and the fenced in barnyard.  I had to telescope in with my camera to get any photos.  This painting is from a photo where the white goat saw me checking him and the others out and he/she is checking me out, probably was hoping I might be a means of getting a carrot or apple.  Whenever I've been around goats it always seems like the white goat is the most friendly and the leader of the pact.  I wonder if thats my imagination. ?

Due to the limitations and inconsistencies of various display monitors, the colors you see on your screen may not be a totally accurate reproduction of the actual painting but I work to get the best likeness possible.
