In contrast to the goat of yesterday's post, these two domesticated goats, which were abandoned by their property owner, roam free on a hilltop near Comps, a village at the junction of the Rhone and Gardon Rivers in the south of France. Friend Sylvia snapped the photo and sent it saying that locals bring water for the goats to drink.

On n'a jamais vu une chèvre morte de faim. --proverbe francais

No one has ever seen a goat dead of hunger.

une colline:  a hill
une chèvre:  a goat
jamais:  never
mort(e):  dead
la faim:  hunger
mourir de faim:  to die of starvation

  1. Now you have a reason to visit this beautiful region of Gard and share your picnic with the goats ! I can confirm that Mrs is vegetarian and enjoyed my salad leaf and my apple. Mr is a sandwich eater and mostly the ham inside that he took from a hiker's lunch !
