Can a goat smile?

Odd question you may think.  Smiling is often considered a uniquely human trait, but I am convinced that our animals do actually smile when they are happy and content.

Judge for yourself ... A quick pic of our lovely GinnyPink taken yesterday afternoon.  I reckon that's about as close to a goatie smile as you're ever going to get:

Or how about this one - a lovely picture of Marlin taken by Sue Clinker:
Or, with a slight variation, the toothy grin as demonstrated by dear old Thelma goat:

And of course, they can be rude as well.  This picture of our dear departed Cherokee was snapped by David some years ago.  What excellent timing though, just as Cherry stuck his tongue out!
