    I wasn’t sure about posting this but I saw the weird looking cat thread and figured there’s a thread and comment for everything

    The other day I was at a old farm house we do a lot of work at and there is a veterinarian/semi animal sanctuary I guess for retired farm animals and what not near the property

    Well my coworker tells me of this earless goat he saw and I wasn’t sure what he meant so I went over and sure enough it’s an earless goat

    I’m curious how this happens

    Has anyone ever seen this?
    Was this poor fellow in an accident or do you think it’s a birth defect?
    Any goat experts out there?

    I hate goats, and they hate me. I have a mutual non-aggression pact that seems to be holding, but I don't trust those damn animals any further than I can throw them. I bet that goat chewed his own ears off.

    Thirty years ago when I used to ride my bike to work, I used to pass a small family farm that had one goat. Most days he'd be out in the road waiting for me. He didn't like me riding past his pasture, and he intended to do something about it. He'd charge at me, trying for all he was worth to knock me off of my bike. I feared for my bike, he would have probably eaten it had he succeeded in knocking me to the ground. It was the same story everyday. I'd come around the corner and he'd be there waiting. I'd slowly approach him, then come nearly to a stop maybe fifteen feet from him. I'd stand on my pedals doing a track stand, just waiting for him to make his move. I learned from experience that the goat charges in a straight line, so I'd slowly approach inch by inch in a gear tall enough to allow me to accelerate quickly. As soon as he put his head down to charge I'd crank the handlebars in the other direction and sprint out of his way.

    I've had other run ins with other goats. I don't have this problem with any other animals, save for the groundhogs who try to eat everything I plant. To this day I won't eat or use any product made from goats, including goat cheese. I hate goats.

    I've always thought goat's have a cool shape to their pupils.

    Well I’ll be darned I never thought of googling it
    The mystery is solved!

    I just learned a couple months ago about goat waddles and that blew my mind

    Huh Now there’s a whole breed of earless goats

    Who would have thought

    Well I guess I’m glad the poor thing wasn’t maimed

    This particular goat seemed fairly friendly and runs towards the fence when I get out of my truck to look at him

    Geese are another story
    When I was younger my buddy and I decided to approach a flock of geese and I tell you what geese are ferocious little animals they fanned out their wings and made the most incredible hissing sound while charging us at full speed on their little webbed feet

    I don’t know if it was a pack mentality so the geese felt safe to attack or if they are just hard bottom animals

    I would have guessed something chewed them off or they were cauliflowered from boxing with the other goats.

    We ran out of milk once on a holiday and a farmer gave my second son goats milk. We all used it. Lighter, less fat- beautiful!

    We had two Lamanchas in our small herd, both passed this past year. They were extremely gentle but also extremely curious. It was near impossible to do any work in the pasture if they were around. Especially if you tried to ignore them - in which case they would bite at your butt to get your attention! The other breds we have seem to be fine with being ignored and would generally shy away from human contact... unless you were carring anything that resembled a feed or treat bucket. Then they were all over you like white on rice!

    They are weird. I just noticed them for the first time in July. They look like neck testicles.
