    1. I think the goat was in a fence so the photographer had to take a side shot or jump the fence and get thrown out of the place. I like the view too though, good thing it was fenced.

  1. I love your photos. Thanks for sharing your family memories. This photo is very nice.

  2. Look at those horns! I wonder if kids today still go to “petting zoos”? I look forward to taking my future grandchildren 🙂

    1. They still have petting zoos here. At least they did 9 years ago. I have a photo of a granddaughter brushing a goat. I will use it next time an animal/ child theme suggests it.

  3. There’s something so sweet about young children becoming aware of animals in such a hands-on way. I’m assuming you had your share of doing the same?

    1. I’m sure I did. Otherwise I would be holding a grudge against Pearl and my parents for always saying, “No pats for you Kris, move aside and let Pearl pat the goat.” Or maybe that is why I kept goats, rabbits and chickens for several years.

  4. Those horns look wicked, Kristin. Thank goodness the goat was passive while your sister was sitting there petting it.

  5. Another winner! Do you keep track of your photos with some kind of system? I imagine a filing box labeled “Goats, w/Children”. In chronological order too.

    1. Ha! If only. No they are in various binders, boxes. When I see a prompt I remember seeing a photo that would go with it. Then I have to look through the various binders, boxes and computer folders. Usually I can remember where I saw it. The only photographs I have scanned and ordered chronologically are those of my Graham grandparents. They are in order through the 1950s. It makes it so easy, why don’t I do the rest?
