|Maraton and stretching - © Jelrik Nylund-van Berkel|
As she said, now it is springtime and everywhere you see sports. Running, Zumba, Aerobics, uphill-running etc... So we were challenged to be a sportsphotographer.
This week I was working at Mørk gård in Sætre by my good friend Helge. It is a wonderfull place in the middle of the woods with about 70 Kashmirgoats running around. Goats are amazing animals with a lot of character. They love being outside but when it begins to rain they run to the barn, scared to be wet. This week a few trees were taken down and those goats just love the fresh leaves of the trees. They have an amazing area to graze on but when they hear the sound of the chain saw the maraton starts, because, hey, the grass is always greener on the other side. From all over the area goats starts running a goat maraton and all together they rush to the fallen tree. When arrived they start a stretching session to the nicest leaves, crawling over eachother. It is like a bunch of Piranhas jumping on their bait. And just an hour afterwards the whole tree is ripped for leaves and bark.
It is funny to see the physical strength that those goats are delivering for a bit of food and shows that springtime is not only physical training for us people but for the whole nature around us.
