A couple of goats and a lot of bull!


You'll notice I took this shot from behind a fence. You may remember a previous shot where I leaned over the fence to focus and the bull charged me! The fence is rickety (notice the broken board) and I was afraid it wouldn't hold, but I made a hasty retreat on my bicycle and got away unscathed. I was more careful this time. That bull may be small but he's very protective of those goats!

Wherever there are a couple of old goats, there is always a lot of bull. (Sorry, I couldn't resist)

The goat on the right looks like it's practicing for water skiing!

AH, so an old dog CAN learn new tricks? Glad you didn't repeat the mistake, Lowell. ;)

I have learned to stay well away from bulls. They have no sense of humor and they don't like to have their picture taken. That goat seems to be giving you a warning look.

Oh lol, you have some wonderful comments here! :-) Love this post. I'm trying to picture you on a bike, pedalling like crazy being followed by a fast and snorting bull!

I wonder if a biker can pedal safely away from a charging bull...

I can't top Sharon's comment! ;-))

I've heard that goats are often kept with bulls to help calm them and keep them company. This is maybe not the best side of the bull though!

If that bull lifts its tail, Lowell, run for it!
