On the subject of goats, here's a ham radio operator I repeatedly contact who has become "alpha goat" to two wethers, Rooster and Peanut. They follow him wherever he goes, especially packing into the Colorado Rockies. They carry some of his gear, including a few thousand dollars worth of equipment. (Don't worry, it only weighs a few pounds.)
View this clip with caution if you're subject to vertigo or motion sickness. The camera is mounted on the back of the goat.
He also is owned by a Peruvian Paso named Lucy.

There is a place in North Georgia called the Dillard House. They have an awesome restaurant, hotel and a petting zoo complete with goats, sheep and a huge long-horn cow among other things. One of the goats will hop on a pile of rocks in the middle of the pen, leap from there to the back of the cow and the cow will then deliver the goat to the fence where it will jump out. Then the resident border collie will keep it contained until someone comes along to put it back in the pen.
"Hello, Orkin? Yes, I'm calling about some pests. I can hear them running all over the roof."
"Have you seen or identified any of these pests?"
"Yes, we're infested with goats on the roof. Can you help?"
"No, nobody has figured out how to get rid of goats. Just name them ma'am."
You jump in the saddle,
Hold onto the bridle!
Jump in the line!
Yeah sure, it starts with cute vids of goaties and their play pretties. You get a few does and a couple of bucks, and a passel of good intentions. Next thing you know you're being goat raped in the snow. The worst part is, you can't tell anyone. They don't want to spend that much time standing next to your smelly a$$.
Looks like two got into something they couldn't get out of...
HELENA, Mont. – Two young goats wandered onto the thin ledge of a railroad bridge and spent nearly two days high above the ground until rescuers in a towering cherry picker plucked them from their perch, hungry but safe...
