As the wonderful women who come out to take photos for us will tell you, goats are not the easiest of photo subjects. They would rather nibble on the camera straps. Stand next to the photographer for some attention instead of in front of the camera for a picture. They're always moving, eating or looking the other way. It takes hundreds of pictures (not to mention a lot of goat herding, hand waving, can shaking and funny voice making) to get a handful of good ones. A few weeks ago PSGR friends Lilly and Emily came out with some Halloween props and their amazing photographer mom Jerrinne. When Rocket saw the props he decided to stay put and observe from the dog house.
Soon he could not resist partaking in the fun
He was drawn to Bingo's hat, obsessed is more like it
Others were simply perplexed by Bingo in his hat
Peach was quick to figure out that a tip of her head would knock her hat off
A few others found the props to be tasty new treats
Emily helped get the headbands on the goats while Lilly tried a new vantage point to help get the goats attention
Finally it worked!
Many thanks to Jerrinne, Lilly and Emily. Their spirit, photography skills and some cooperative goats made for some great Halloween fun and some picture perfect photos!
