The Travesty of Goats in Trees

This year I have been happy whiling away the months to the steady and lofty beat of the goats in trees calender

Every month brought a new sylvestral capric delight. So hoping for another fun year of arboreal ungulates i looked up the 2011 calendar. However I was shocked when I looked at this years chronology of tree based mammals.

See the fun loving soaring tribes? Now see this years calendar.

July, April and February are repeats. December does not even have any goats in a tree. The trip of goats in the photo are entirely ground based, what a sham.

I would not lightly give out about the folk at the august Brown Trout publishers but this shoddy display of could lead to dangerous Bovidaen Déjà vu.

Which means I am stuck without a calendar for next year. Any recommendations?

So long as you're not boycotting Brown Trout, there's this.

If you are into R.O.U.S. there is a capybara calendar http://www.cafepress.com.au/+capyvaras_en_capybaras_wall_calendar,89411096

The first picture says 2007 but the months say 2011.

I have... illegally. It's on my wishlist still.
TC is the one I couldn't identify! He was not very famous in my country. His wikipedia entry doesn't have my language ;)

I have this year's 'goats in trees' calendar and, I must say, I cannot think of any superior alternative. I know you were upset about the repeats, but I don't think you're going to top that photography. Also, the last photo pictured in which the goats are not actually in trees is not december, but just an extra photo that is not included in the calendar itself. So, they are true to their word, all months included have goats in trees.
