So it's not a sheep. I thought it was. Ja-9 thought it was. It wasn't.

It's a goat!

It's an angora goat.

So are these: (which I probably should have entered instead)

Janine and I were taking pictures of the "sheep" and then Janine moved down the road to photograph some goats, while I stayed to photograph the sheep. When this guy came out, turned off the electric fence, and told me I could come in and photograph them.

They were angora goats. And, by the way, the goats that Ja-9 went to photograph were really sheep!

Anyway, he started wrestling with the goat, and the goat would rear up and head butt his hand -- over and over again. It was really something to see!

Thanks for all the comments. I know it wasn't a barn or a countryside, but I figured it definitely was part of this guy's little farm. He had about 9 goats. :)

Oh -- here was another outtake. These aren't sheep or goats. :)

This has to be the oddest image I've seen in a while on DPC! Truly wonderful and puzzling - is that a guy in a really realistic sheep costume???? Marvelous catch.

Would have been better without the other sheep, it looks like you are throwing a toy at the main subject!
