This is Joe of Triangle J Farm in Albany, Oregon and twin bucklings. The kids were just over a week old when I took this photo. Joe was carrying them back in to the barn after the goat herd had enjoyed a romp in the field in between rain showers.

Isn’t it cute how the bucklings are touching noses?

  6. Triangle J (Julie) wrote on my Facebook link: “You have no idea how hard it is to get him in front of a camera… I always get the weird faces or the back of his head. I usually have to sneak up on him.”

  7. I wrote back to Julie and said that I did sort of sneak this shot of Joe. I was in my pickup getting ready to leave the farm when I saw how cute this scene was and I fired a couple of photos. This one turned out best because Joe showed some warmth in his expression and the goats – as if on cue – touched noses. Perfect!
