Our home overlooks the neighbor's goat pasture below us and we enjoy watching them. With the extreme heat we have had this summer, they let the goats out in late afternoon or early evening when it is cooler. This is also when we get torrential rains and thunderstorms.
One day this past week, mother goat and her son got caught out in a sudden very heavy shower with thunder. They huddled under a tree for some shelter. The barn is all the way down the other end of the pasure over a creek. I watched, waiting to see what they would do.
The son was the first one to make a run for the barn, dashing out into the rain and leaving mom behind, hugging the tree.
She waited a bit but after a big clap of thunder, made the dash herself - you can see her as a blur on the far right of the picture.
I am joining in on Camera Critters today and Photo Hunt - Busy. I was busy taking pictures and the goats were busy running for cover!
