Jackson County Fair: "Don't Leave Me-e-e-e-e-e!!!"

Jackson County Fair: "Don't Leave Me-e-e-e-e-e!!!"
NOTE: My husband and I started a new work project today, which will mean I'll be behind on my comments until the project is done, about 2 weeks. My apologies in advance, I will try to comment as much as I can in my few free moments! Thanks for understanding!! :)

This dear goat was absolutely beside herself when her companion was taken away for a bath! Here she is, standing up against the side of her enclosure, bleating as loudly as she possibly could. It made for a very amusing image, and I laughed to see her funny face, but I felt bad because she was so filled with anxiety, poor dear!

Nubian goats were developed in Great Britain by breeding dairy goats to imported goats from Middle East and North Africa. They are known for their long, pendulous ears and roman nose, and are raised for both their milk and meat. They have a high proportion of butterfat in their milk, but because they aren't strictly dairy goats, they don't produce as much milk as other breeds. These goats are also popular for their heat tolerance, and thrive in hotter climates.

If you would like to know more about these goats, Wiki has a very nice page here: Wiki: Nubian Goats
