Pet of the week: The enthusiastic goat

Posted on February 25, 2019 |
By Lydia Visser



pet of the week 2 18.jpg

Now here is a thing of which our family boasts;

That we now own the liveliest of goats.

When she’s feeling sprite and in need of fun,

She jumps to her feet and the show has begun!

 

With a flip to the left and a hop to the right;

A rear straight up then all four in flight.

Again she does it without hesitation,

To gain elevation and try aviation.

 

In this - of course - she doesn’t succeed;

So she makes up for that with overall speed.
