    You know, I was planning on doing this for the last few days but the other post beat me to it!

    These are some that I like, that I found while digging through the old photos the last few days (had to find some for a friend).

    They arent of goats which is why I thought I'd put them in a different post, but mods please move if it should be on the other thread.

    My steer, Mario. Grand Champion on hoof at Sydney Royal 2004, black limo, orphaned at 3 weeks and put on grain. Was too fat to get the champ on the hook. The sweetest best tempered steer of all I have shown.


    Week old angus bull calf, 'Frankfurt', at Sydney show 2005. Also my avatar. Mum was the craziest bitch I've ever had the pleasure of working with. I washed her with a broom.

    Piccolo, I posted this on another forum where I have an avatar, just copy and pasted it here to save writing it out again :oops: I've been meaning to get on with doing an av here ...

    Heh Heh I was playing with that calf like all show (1 week) he was cool!

    toth ... the elephants were behind electric tape and also tethered by a chain attached to a front leg. They were really relaxed about everything. Our animal welfare rules have changed and circuses are no longer allowed to use elephants in their acts ... but a lot of old circuses like this one own elephants from when they were allowed to perform ... they are not suitable for zoos as they are too humanised ... so it doesnt leave them with much of a life - they get downright bored because they love performing, and arent allowed to do it anymore. (In case you didnt realise, I love circuses and I tend to stick around and talk to the people waaaay too much. The last one that came through here had three performing goats!)

    Jet is a border collie.

    Tassie is short for Tasmania, the little island at the bottom of Australia. I LOVE tassie, if I didnt have all my family here I would be moving there.

    Storms are pretty tame in my area, we dont generally get gale force winds or storm damage or anything like that. They just look intimidating!

    climbed up a ladder to stand on a teensy, weensy platform, spun around on it, barrel rolling, seesaw ... probably some others that I am forgetting. They were very well trained. We went back and met them after the show :greengrin:

    Great picture keren! The one of the kitten on the screen really cracked me up.

    She reminds me of my old cat Nala. That cat used to cling to the molding at the top of the doorway and wait for my dog to walk underneath. She would then drop on him as he walked by.
