Okay so this fall I got goats, they are dwarf Nigerian goats and are all wethers so no milk , no bucks, just lawn mower/pets! I had no idea that farm animals could be so affectionate! They are just like having dogs..:) Since they are such a big part of our family now I decided to add their photo to our Christmas Cards..:o)
Hope you like it. Added a border and of course some bows and greenery..:o)

Happy Holidays!

Hello Donna..
Could not find your hydrangea post =)

I do love this as a Christmas Card.. I think it makes a wonderful one! Edit work imo is nicely done..
I love each expression as well... ha ha ha

Hi Donna,
Nice idea-the small goats instead of Santa's rein-deers :)
Funny and original.
Have a great Christmas !

Now that is just too cute! I also love goats. My grandchildren were helping to raise 2 of them for a friend until they passed the bottle feeding stage.
The black one is a little bit too dark against the trees but the bows and greenery helps. Nice composition.

Hi Donna!

Beautiful and funny shot! Really perfect Christmas Card!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2010!
