Our local Council organized a wonderful, family day out in celebration of Australia Day on January 26.

Carnival-style stalls and demonstrations of country activities such as shearing the sheep and milking the cows provided some of the day’s highlights.

But for me, nothing could equal the delight of watching the farmyard animals.

One remarkably friendly and engaging baby goat kept coming up to me, seeking attention. I confess I would be tempted to have one as a pet if circumstances permitted.

As it is, Chicki need have no fear of competition.

    We are alike when it comes to goats my friend. As I shared that picture of me loving on goats at that dairy and bed and breakfast. They do seem to crave affection and I love to give it. I would have a herd of them if I had a safe environment away from predators like big dogs or other creatures. Loved all your pictures.
