Inter-Atoll Goat Beauty Contest to be held soon....

Maybe those semi-Arab Dhivehin who herd goats in imitation of Mohammad, (a man who lived 1400 years ago in Arabia) will take cue from their brethren in Saudi Arabia and launch the Inter-Island and Inter-Atoll Goat beauty contests soon

With thanks to Life in the Fast Lane......goats were on the catwalk for the Most Beautiful Goat at the Mazayen al-Maaz competition yesterday in Riyadh, capitol of Saudi Arabia. A Damascene goat — or Maaz Al Shami — named Qahr was the beauty queen who won title for first prize.

Winners are selected on the basis of a combination of factors and overall appearance, not simply by their color — but the head, nose, mouth, ears, breast and eyes — with the most important factor being the size of the head and the whiteness of their eyes.
First and foremost, think about whether you can meet the needs of a goat and whether goats will meet your expectations as a pet before owning any, as they require considerable attention and commitment.

Some say that goats can be a close runner-up to dogs as pets and easily trained to be led by a leash for walks if you dedicate plenty of time to them on a daily basis, making them a great hiking companion.

Disciplining these creatures may not be an easy task, but they respond well to positive behavior modification versus negative — using a gentle and loving approach, soft tones of voice, and coercion with food. Don’t make sudden and unexpected motions, no force of your will, and never strike them with your hand or an object.

While they may not run to greet you like a dog when calling them by name, they will learn to recognize their name and acknowledge by looking at you, and even have the capacity to learn a few words.

    Would the mademoiselle like me to xplain my 'let the dogs loose' statement? For one thing i have since then come to know, who i had been talking to all along. second of all there's 'Reactionary' and there's plain old 'Overkill'!

    Most of the blog posts are wayy off the mark from what I had implied

    This blog is not going to prevent goats from being imported to the atolls, through this methodology of hate. Maturity will hopefully catch up with you, in time. Once you are able to get your temper at The certain someone under control. hehe

    Muizz is doing a better job than you. It takes finesse to influence the peoples mindset & positively reinforce cultural values(as opposed to a complete overhaul), not irrational fear-induced rantings and propagandist plagiarism.

    What you need is a hug, D(ea)R
