Goats are one of those animals that just make me laugh out loud (that's why I used this animal as my blog masthead). I've had some experience with goats, enough to know I would love to have some one day when I can. Some years ago I read this article from The Onion that really summarizes goat personality. Then I dug out this photo below of my sister Rae in August 1971 when she was 3 years old and obviously someone must have said "here Rae, hold this goat". She is having none of it by the expression on her face. The donkey behind her right shoulder seems concerned and neglected as well.
