    Now since my last visit 2.5 metre peter the goat has appeared, apologies for the piccy quality - i'll get detailed shots for you get time Bets.

    I really have no fukin idea why Thais are so obsessed by large animal statues. This one is outside an "Army" camp, in quotes because they are the Farm Army... whatever that is. Amazingly its even got hair which i have no idea what they made that from. Like most things in Thailand it'll probably be in a really sorry state with one horn missing and bald patches next time i see it. For dates PM Manny. Behind is Belinda the Baaa Lamb of equally impressive scale but behind the wire likely due to the high Welsh population in the vicinity.

    GOAT WORSHIP: STUNNING PHOTOS OF HEAVY METAL'S MOST ICONIC BEAST
    Photographer R. J. Kern has traveled the world to document the "hoofed animals … both banal and mythical"






    From Venom's Welcome to Hell to Slayer's Show No Mercy to Slipknot's Iowa — the goat has appeared in some of heavy music's most iconic imagery, thanks to its long history as a vessel of the devil, representation as occult deity Baphomet and general badass reputation as a strong-willed beast that will eat almost anything and can cling to near-vertical mountainsides with its cloven hoofs. No other animal better represents the tenacious, IDGAF attitude of heavy metal, and perhaps no other photographer has spent more time capturing their image than R. J. Kern. Since 2012, the Minnesota-based photographer has been traveling to Ireland, Germany, Norway and Iceland to investigate his family's pastoral roots and document the "hoofed animals … both banal and mythical" that have supported his ancestors for generations.

    ^ The first one is not very heavy metal, more like The Sound of Music with Julie Andrews singing "High on a hill is a lonely goat, ole ole olehehoo..", and I'm pretty sure the second one is a sheep, possibly a merino.
    Just saying.

    This may be more of a heavy metal goat...if it's not a sheep.

    While the greens are maintained relatively well, goat herds help the cause at the Himalaya Golf Course, Pokhara, Nepal

    Wales: Goats take over empty streets of seaside town
    30 March 2020




    A herd of goats has taken over a deserted town centre, eating hedges and flowers from gardens.

    Usually, the wild herd of about 122 Kashmiri goats venture from the Great Orme into Llandudno during bad weather.

    But town councillor Carol Marubbi believes the lack of people around because of coronavirus has drawn them down.

    "They are curious, goats are, and I think they are wondering what's going on like everybody else," she said.

    The goats - some of which have recently had kids - have been spotted nibbling flowers.
