The goats were not interested in me at all! I think it is because they are normally getting wacked with a stick when a person comes around…

That first one has an intense look!!!
Probably wondering why I was chasing him with a stick!
Against my better judgement and despite the repeated warnings from nearly everyone who knew anything about life in Egypt I accepted an offer from a local that would get me up to the pyramids before the sun came up for some awesome early morning pictures. For $20 he offered me on his camel while he rode a donkey. Because the historic site was officially closed we had to take a small trail up the side of the hill. It was all loose gravel and the camel struggled but was making steady progress. However, ‘Mohammed’ repeatedly beat the camel and it cried all the way up the hill.
did you get the pictures?
Seems like they take better care of their goats than their cows. The first one has nice markings….the second one looks bored…and the kid has no cares in the world.
I think it miight be that goats seem to thrive on anything & cows need more grass/grains that are not plentiful
What exotic looking goats. As far as beating camels or any other animal for that matter, it makes me feel sick that people can be so cruel.
Amazing how different cultures are, sometimes it is hard to understand why people are the way they are
I think the third pic is a lamb. A lamb among goats…wow…success…integrating two different factions to live together peacefully….lol.
I can tell the adults apart, but not the little ones!
These are wonderful – even if some of them look like they’ve had a ‘bad-hair day!’
They look so furry and fuzzy – the only goats I’ve ever encountered have really short and smooth hair, nowhere near as fluffy-looking as these ones. I like their colouring too, very striking. But the eyes of the first one give me the heebie-jeebies! Well-captured images!
Thanks, I appreciate that
