Inquisitive goats


Look at these curious characters I caught staring at me a couple of days ago. Would appreciate any help with identifying the breed.

Can't help with the breed, but he looks downright charming!

I'm loving this series of animals. Now goats I can't resist. I used to keep them in Wales and later in Tasmania, but neither looked like this so can't help with the variety.

It's a ... Are you ready?? ... an Alpine! Nice horns. Where did they wander off from?
Here is a link where I found a match...http://www.ansi.okstate.edu/breeds/goats/.

BTW - how grand to have friends who traveled on QM2! We've been on QM often - to eat, to watch fireworks, for parties - but it still feels different when it doesn't leave it's docking place.

Oh, I love goats too! They live for playing King of the Mountain.

I didn't know there were so many goat fans out there! :-)

Tash: Your goat does look similar and it makes sense that it's an 'Alpine' of some sort. I'll see if I can get a closer match (probably only something that's known inside CH!).

It's a Swiss goat. It's where Swiss cheese comes from of course.
