Over the fence

Avignon, en amont
Last Saturday on a walk along the Rhone I met Mr. Goat. For a tasty bunch of flowers he was quite ready to stretch his neck over a rusty fence. Of course I didn't let him wait, he got it all and ate the lot to the very last flower. This post is my participation to the November City Daily Photo theme day : fences. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.

Samedi dernier lors d'une promenade au bord du Rhône j'ai rencontré Monsieur bouc. Pour un savoureux bouquet il n'a pas hésité pas à tendre le cou au-dessus d'un grillage rouillé. Je ne l'ai pas laissé attendre, je lui ai tout donné. Il s'est régalé et n'en a pas laissé une fleur ! Ce billet est ma participation au thème du mois du réseau City Daily Photo pour novembre : "fences" (clôtures).

What an incredibly handsome goat! I do hope the rusty top to the fence did not goad his neck too much. Although goats have cast-iron stomachs, I wonder does that extend to their tender necks.

Julie I don't think he hurt himself, he gave me the impression he knew exactly what he was doing, without much effort.

Mr Goat is a character indeed!

Clever goat to have his meal held out to him. The barbed wire didn't seem to faze him one bit. Handsome devil, too!

Rakesh Vanamali said...

Quite a personality!

Chri said...

Le bouc et le bouquet... Une fable!

What a fine goat. Lovely photo of him. I love goats. Used to keep them and milk them when I lived in Wales and later, in Tasmania, they were kept for their coat which was spun (not by me!)

Tamera said...

Goats are always hungry, aren't they? It doesn't take much to make a new friend -- just something to munch on!

Le tenir par la barbichette !
Je les aime bien ; la chèvre est mon signe chinois.

La Capricorne que je suis apprécie tes fleurs, merci Nathalie ;-)

Thérèse said...

Il est vraiment beau! Et tu me rappelles des souvenirs d'enfance... les approcher d'un peu pres et on sent pendant des jours meme avec des douches entre temps... Ils adorent les ronces et c'est une bonne chose.

Oh, Mr. Goat is very handsome! Fun take on today's theme.

Gosh he's magnificent Nathalie, his horns (antlers?) are so big. He's loving that snack, a tasty reward for such a good portrait!!
