Illustration Friday 'Rambunctious Goat'

"Nanny appreciates a well - dressed tree"

Goats are the most rambunctious creatures I know. Of all the words that could be used to describe a goat, 'rambunctious' is probably the most appropriate. Closely followed by 'endearing' and 'infuriating' depending on the mood you are in when the goat is encountered! I love goats, and would dearly like to own one. My husband hates them and threatens to leave if I ever so much as THINK of taking one on!

Fabulous illustration, I love the color and details. I like goats from afar, and that's spoken as a Capricorn, the goat zodiac sign! lol!

I love goats too. They have such an attitude problem, a bit like Canada geese (like them too).

And guess what? I've done a goat for my IF this week too!

Great drawing! I bet your husband would love goats if he got to know one personally. Some can be rambunctious, but they are so funny. Mine make me laugh everyday. :)

what a great picture! until recently i raised fainting goats and i really miss having them in the pasture. they all had very distinct personalities and kept me entertained daily. your picture captures the essence of their mischieviousness.

Infuriating is a perfect word for a goat. I owned three on two separate occasions, and they got into all kinds of mischief: escaping to be with the horses in the pasture. The first goat I owned was a cross-bred named Missy, and the other two were Nubians: Fred and Ginger.

If you have a horse or horses, goats in a barn or stable will bring good luck.

Great artwork!

Thank you for visiting my blog.
