This is Goat, my old buddy who knocked my barn clear off the foundation from butting it. He also stood on his hind end and would try to butt everyone but me. Much better than a dog, seeing a goat big enough to ride comming at you!!His horns strech over 4 ft from tip to tip. It took 8 stacked focus shots to get the focus from tip to the other side. I told him when he died, I was gonna hang him in a tree and keep his skull forever... Well it's 35 years later and finally Goat is doing something non-destructive!

Congrats, it's a marvelous tribute to your old friend. And the story about him is so moving. Sounds like a TOTAL character. Just like YOU!

Very interesting subject. Seems the animal died while in the velvet phase. I'm sure this fits the spiral just fine, but to my eye, it's bottom heavy, with too much negative space above, and too crowded near the bottom edge
