@Gérard Beullac: Thanks Gérard!....during the conversion to B&W I darkened all of the grass, the stone wall and the mountain in the background in order to make the white of the goat stand out more.

You got a splendid composition out of this. The line of the cliff in the back is particularly good at making the photo interesting.
