Dessert Goats out for a run (Antelope)
Whenever we drive to La Grande or Boise, we look for these amazing animals in the fields and on the hills. Their coloring is such that they blend in, so you need sharp eyes to find them, and, considering they are the fastest land mammal in North America – you have to look “quickly!” While working on this painting at Mad Mary’s in Joseph Oregon, a lady commented… “Oh, Dessert Goats!” which made me laugh. We raise goats, and if they get into the garden they are truly pests… but I think the Antelope are much prettier.
