Curly haired goats? Interesting to say the least. The different colored eyes are kind of freaky since they look like the same breed. Nice image.

Nice shot, goats really are quite inquisitive animals, and they love people.

I believe they are angora goats, however most are light coloured so it could be a cross of some sort.

Correct, they are angora goats. There are colored angora goats, not sure what they originally bred the white ones with to get color, but these are pure bred.

I have one tiny goat, who can actually get her through the fence, but thanks to her horns, can not get her head back out. so I go out there some days 8 times a day to free her head.

I know the feeling, we have three kids who absolutely love getting stuck in the fence, but we know of it all right, they scream their blooming heads off, nubian goats are apparently known for their noise...

not familiar with Nubians so can't compare their noise to the angora... but when my little girl Mia gets her head stuck, it is a louder, very distressed bleat compared to their normal noises. My dilemna is, I'm recovering from a partially torn ACL, so to free her, I climb the gate, drop down, try to get to her and get her freed before the naughty boys get to me and get too "playful" I tell her all the time it's her fault I'll never heal.

anyway, you milk your goats? Post some pictures if you have any. I love goats.

We do milk our goats, maybe I'll get some pictures, however our current kids are much less 'cute' now that they are growing.

I used to have Nigerians! We had to get rid of them unfortunately. I miss them still.
