Jackson County Fair: Staring Contest with an Earless Goat

Jackson County Fair: Staring Contest with an Earless Goat
Steve and I went to the county fair a few days ago!! Our county fair is pretty small, but it's a lot of fun and has a strong community spirit, due to the fact that most of this area is rural farmland.

This amazing "earless" goat is called an American Lamancha, a dairy breed developed right here in Oregon! Although they are famous for their nearly non-existent ears, these goats are popular for their high milk production and comparatively high butterfat in their milk.

If you would like to know more about these distinctive goats, Wiki has a great page here: Wiki: American Lamancha Goat

It does look so odd without the long floppy goat ears. But those distinctive eyes give it away!

So, you could call these goats rude names and insult their taste in beards and and all that, and they wouldn't be able to hear you?
