    Default Great Goat Pics

    These were taken by a friend on the Kenai and email to me. I was so impressed I had to share them. I hope you all enjoy them. That peekaboo shot is amazing! I posted them on the photography forum as well but there are so many more people here;

    Either a bearing tree for a property marker or a channel marker for the river. Can't tell for sure.

    Not sure its a he. Looks like milk veins running along the belly but could be hair line and the horns look thin. Horns look to be 7" to 8" but not seeing it other than a photo takes some luck.

    Deffinate male. I would say 7-8in and 5-6 years old.

    Great pics! You just don't see up close pics of a goat without it being dead. Thanks.

    The pic was taken near the photographers house, not really in the middle of nowhere so the plastic things on the trees are not surprising. Probably just some old signs or property markers. Actually I believe he was standing in his yard!
    As far as goats go I thought this looked to be a pretty big male, am I correct? How would it rate trophy-wise? I always thought goats were very wary and hard to get close to, is it unusual to have one hanging around near houses and allowing itself to be photographed?

    Thumbs up

    The pictures are the Trophy. This is about as unusual as it gets.

    He's definitely a billy. The taper of the horns is the give away. Nannies are typically two-thirds as wide at the bases. Looking sleek in his thinner summer coat.

    By my estimate he's 5 1/2 with just under 8" horns (+/- 1/8").

    In two years he'll go B&C easily

    My apologies to the OP--I played with the pic to illustrate my estimates
    Feel free to critique my numbers.
