The Face of Avatar


This is a little goat called Blue Eyed Elaine. Lainey to her friends. I took this photo several months ago at Herron Hill Dairy. My camera loved the little blue goat that bears an uncanny resemblance to the girl in Avatar.
I got several pretty shots of her that day. Goats, just like people are either photogenic or not. I am not. Lainey is.
Now she looks like this.



I liked her so much I brought her home a while back. Lainey, once likened to a footstool, is super wide. She has what we need here. Some width. She also has the pretty neck and head associated with the Belle family.



She was suppose to lose weight when she came to my farm but Lainey loves to eat.



You will often see her licking the feed pan when all others have left.


Or sleeping in it while waiting for it to fill.


note to friends and family that are probably planning an intervention, I did sell four goats.

I was just going to say ... in that head-on shot she looks just like Baby Belle! Okay, who did you sell? That one picture looks like she is sticking her tongue out at you for even daring to say anything about losing weight! Is she my niece too? Is she related to Peanut?

She is very pretty! I can see why you had to bring her home.

I'm not all that fond of goats, and even *I* think she's adorable.

And she's clearly got first dibs on whatever hits the feed pan...
