Goats at the Glims Farmstead Museum 24.5.2015.

The 4H-organization is having a petting zoo with
goats and sheep over the summer. It was a
huge success on the opening day when I visited.

  15. Glims on hyvä kohde, varsinkin näin kesällä siellä on kaikkia kivoja teemoja. Lapsetkin viihtyy, eikä vain valokuvaajat :)

  21. Enjoyed your photos of the goats! They are handsome creatures. It's fun to watch them play. My father had a friend who had goats once...he said they were contrary, and would even eat blackberry stems if I recall correctly.

  22. Cute photos of the goats, they love visiting with people and tasting their clothes.;-) I was thinking at the beach today watching dogs playing in the surf what it would be like if people brought their pet goats to the beach. I like the eyes particularly of the dark goat, I can see his horizontal pupils better.
