Indeed. I jest not. These are LaMancha goats - which entails them being 'earless', but not deaf, mind you. They are just cartilidge-impaired.
They are the newest addition at my sister's farm, which, ironically enough, just got some attention from PBS's Small Business School (smallbusinessschool.org) and are publishing my photo taken of my neices: http://smallbusinessschool.org/webapp/sbs/Holidays/LaborDay/school.jsp
The baby in the foreground actually has the ears - don't know what that's about - but as you can see, the nanny and other kids don't. This set is very shy - so this is as close as I got before the battery went dead on my camera.
More farm pics tomorrow, and I promise I will update the photos on my sister's site this week. Girl Scout's honor.
