Beloved Dairy Goat

Photo source: Ram Krishnan
Rahat Basit has delivered to us the Jamunapari goat, and the world is a brighter place for it. The jamunapari is one of the most beloved and tall of the Indian dairy goats. And how can you not adore it? Look at that stubby snout and those dangly, beveined ears. The droopy eyes and the prominent forehead!

I've got a hankering for goat cheese now. Maybe some cheese rolled with cranberries and walnuts...I shouldn't be posting on my lunch break. Must go eat. Leftovers.

Thanks, Rahat. The Pari is amazing.

I had one of my own when I stayed with my grandmother in her village in Bihar. They are so cute, but stubborn as hell.

Holy crap! It's not often I recoil when this page loads, but that face completely freaked me out! There needs to be another post soon to take that off the top of the page!

I'll say it again, I have a soft spot for animals with long ears. Both of my dogs have huge ears.

Also, that smiling spider picture from a couple posts ago was on cuteoverload.

Trechary!

if you lop off the ears, it reminds me of the monsters from Aliens...

This picture makes it easy to see why the goat has been linked to the devil in many cultures.

But..those ears; are they naturally squared-off like that?

Also, I think we should have a captioning contest for this picture.
