This goat was 4 days overdue, I had 3 children that where like expectant fathers, running up and down the hill to check on her. Finally on July 4th, a breech birth the twin boys arrived. Goats have 2 uterus's, so twins, triplets are always expected. A single goat birth would be like me having quads every time I got pregnant! very rare!

Thank you all so much for your comments and votes, tis a good comeback from this last year!

very intriguing mix of disturbing and heartwarming.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy art gallery.

One of my favorite type of newspaper assignments is to capture "wild art", which is defined as "Stand-Alone, Feature Shot, Enterprise art are found moments that are intended to be realistic slices of everyday life" (definition taken from this glossary). These are typically images that caption themselves, not needing a lot of words to get their point across. For this challenge, I'm scoring images as whether I'd like to see them on the front page of a paper as feel good wild art. If I don't think they would make the paper, I'm then asking myself, "does it make me feel good?" If it doesn't do much for me, well then, oh well...

Hands down, here's the winner.
