Wow... Never seen anything like that. Great capture, the goat could do with some more food but interesting capture.

Wow!those horns look as though if they turn in much more they will do the goat some damage but i am probably wrong.He looks as though he'd run if you got too close but he doesn't know that if it was me it would be the other way round.Great detail,texture,lighting and presentation.Don't work too hard and cut down on those twelve hour shifts if you are doing them nineteen at a time we like you around.....healthy.Take care.AnnSmile

Talk about crowning glory, I've never seen horns so big, he looks a bit senior so perhaps that's why, great capture,

Amazing creature! Those horns look a serious impediment to getting about. The grazing doesn't look to be that abundant either. Like the eye contact! Good pose, well caught!

another lovely natural capture
-re horns on thorn's comment - many domestic rams have horns that grow round into their face (agonisingly painful) so just before this happens the vet or farmer saws them off (doesn't hurt as they are the same as hooves and fingernails)
- Don't want to think what happens in the wild

A great image James the light shows off those long curly horns to perfection .

Nineteen 12 hour shifts eh!! I can commiserate as when first nursing we did 3 months of 12 hour shifts 8pm-8am on nights.! Still not all doom and gloom as I managed to pick out a husband as he lay helpless in bed LOL xx

Those horns are amazing, but the poor animal looks a bit malnourished. He seems to check if you are carrying anything edible. Well captured.

Amazing shot. It would be neat to crop square to the head and horns and replace the BG for an in-your-face impact.

Hi James

What strange eyes and huge horns! On my travels its not uncommon to see what westerners think of as malnourished animals, but its not the case, its just the way they are, very lean. Good capture in a natural setting.
