Ribbons Shmibbons

We have a little yearling named Xie Xie (pronounced shay shay) and she is very good-natured. She has a little good-natured daughter named Binky and a good-natured son named Buddy. Being one-quarter Nubian she does occasionally let out a bellow of indignation for no apparent reason, but we think that is just as a courtesy to her fellow Nubians. In reality she is very easygoing and doesn't mind much of anything.

In the photo above by official goat photographer Wendy Webster Xie Xie is being used as a display table to show off some of the ribbons the girls won at the fair. She doesn't care.

In the photo below Xie Xie displays the rosette she won herself. It is a pretty good ribbon for a little skinny yearling to win. She doesn't care.

The ribbon is nice, but may we please have a picture of the face? If she is part Nubian, I definitely want to see the face. Is she related to me???

oh dear I guess the photographer didn't get a picture of that. Xie Xie is not any relation to you, Marigold. But she is pretty anyway.

Are you sure the photographer didn't take a picture of her face? It probably would have been out of focus anyway.

Perhaps the 'photographer' was out looking for hummingbirds...again?
