photoblog image 'Scene' in Dorset - Goats

'Scene' in Dorset - Goats

This "longish" series comprises a variety of subjects and shots I took during our April visit to Dorset for our nephews wedding.

Many years ago we went to a Donkey Sanctuary at Church Knowle, not far from Swanage or Wareham on the Isle of Purbeck.  We returned during our Dorset visit to find it is now a full-blown animal welfare and rescue sanctuary and therefore slightly more formal than it was during our previous visit but none the less interesting for that.  If you like cats they have plenty looking to be re-homed.

These two seemed to be enjoying a comfortable rest in the spring sunshine.

Details of the sanctuary are here


If you copy and paste this http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/304599.htm into a new tab you will see a collage of the eight images I have had selected for the Leicester exhibition that I mentioned on Monday.  For some reason I can't get a link to work with this one.

Escapees from Tiff's pagan ritual, Brian?

Perhaps that is why they are at the Donkey Sanctuary?

Very sweet
Brian Walbey: Indeed they are Tony.
Lovely photo Brian. I like goats, they are highly intelligent animals, but smelly "en masse" (a few years ago we lived next to a goat farm").

Love your collage, well done on that, and well done again on the 8 selected.
Brian Walbey: Thanks on both accounts Sheila.
This is good Brian and so is your exhibition entry
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
You scratch my back etc.
Brian Walbey: They certainly didn't move at all while I was there Chad.

well captured Brian - I like the collage too
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul.
I guess you would have to rest your head once in a while from carrying those horns around. Lovely shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Mary.

Nice shot Brian. Good weekend
Brian Walbey: Thanks Albert, enjoy your weekend as well.
This is really sweet Brian, I copy and pasted but it would not work, not sure what I have done wrong so will try again.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda. See if the link works from here http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/304599.htm
Mutual appreciation. Good selection of shots in the collage.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much John.
Just a couple of mates!
Brian Walbey: I hope that's all it is Tom smile
I'm not all that fond of goats....apart from the cheesesmile
Brian Walbey: They are not my favourite animals either Bill.
well it certainly beats them locking horns, good shot
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Derek.

They look good friends.. "scratch my back and I'll scratch yours" sort of thing. Let's hope that the sanctuary continues to thrive, Brian.


Good luck with the exhibition; some cracking shots in your set.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Alan.
I guess they are not locked in battle..Nice one Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron.
