Old man walking his goat.

By Nigel_NZ
One for Silly Sunday, from the 2015 file.
We we were on one of many side trips down dusty tracks to the sea, as we passed through a group of holiday homes we noticed this old man and a goat walking the track to the shore, not often you see this, the goat was quite friendly but somewhat protective of the old man, more like a dog would be, so perhaps it's guardgoat ! !

Thanks to all who vote or comment on my pictures, much appreciated, cheers.

That's a Saanen goat -originated in the Saanen Valley in Switzerland. A large goat, excellent milk producer. Goats are herd animals and if they don't have at least one other goat they will make a herd of whatever they can. Horses are their favourite but a human will do.

I had 200 goats at one time; 98 milking. New Zealand was always on my bucket list, one of the reasons being its fine reputation for goat milk and cheese production.

A fantastic beach!

Beyond good ..actually rather sublime Nigel. Never know what a day at the beach will bring I guess. Maybe trained to dig up clams ?
