Goat fun

How does a former show goat spend her days? Carmen, who has earned her master championship with the American Goat Society now spends her days around the pond with her kids. On Wednesday, she decided to go into the pond -- yes, she is standing in water (and algae) up to her belly -- to get more of the willow leaves. It was quite a surprise to discover her standing in water, because when it rains, the goats all start screaming and running for shelter as if they are going to melt.

Your picture made me think of the deer that walk into our pond to eat the water plants growing underwater--that's right--they put their heads underwater to forage for the water plants they prefer. When I see your goat wading in the pond it reminds me that goats and deer might not be too far distant cousins.

Excellent observation! Actually "they" say that goats are more closely related to deer than any other species, even sheep.
