    Music should be "Goats just want to have fun" from Cyndi Lauper.

    (the goat bridge was funny!)

    Sure! I believe you! Thousands wouldn't, but I know you were an engineer type in a previous life...

    Going to go and stare at the nieghbour's goat now...

    It looks like something designed by MC Escher.

    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.

    VERY cool!
    Also uber-cool that the goats don't just take off and go wreak havoc somewhere, LOL!

    But those heights! Yikes...I got queasy watching the Goat Bridge video for heaven's sake!

    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.

    There is a quaint café in Coombs on Vancouver island where the roof is made of sod and they have goats living up there!

    Oh dear. How dangerous. Goats have been known to attack from above.

    With no warning.

    Don't be a victim!

    "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."

    Al Johnson's Swedish restaurant in Door County, Wisconsin has goats on a sod roof also. My daughter, many years later, still talks about the restaurant with the goats eating grass on the roof!

    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...
