And as for you, O my flock, thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I judge between
cattle and cattle, between the rams and the he goats... Ezekiel 34:17

I shot this candid at the Pierce County Fair on August 13th. As you notice
this goat was acting very stubborn.. The judge leading it by the tail and the 4H girl had a hard time pushing it forward. I love goats and I think it was a bit apprehensive of all of the attention.

The goat had a mind of its own and he did not want to be put out on display or to be judged, but finally it went along with the program, "getting it done" as it says on the red T shirt on the far left of the frame..

    That is one scared goat!! I don't blame the poor thing. It must be very frightening for them. But 4-H is wonderful for kids....I myself won a ribbon for my garden veggies at the fair when I was in 4-H. We didn't have any goats. :( Fantastic shot, Andrea!!

    What a great fair shot! I wonder if your fair has a photography contest. Many times they have a fair theme.

    Thank you everyone...Regenia, this was the first year that we didn't see the photography displayed at the fair..We were so busy walking around to other

    booths and animal barns that time slipped away from us. Usually the pictures that are on display are judged and the recipients that win, receive first, second or third prize ribbons for their work...and some money..
