"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

Cowabunga!!!!

Duuuude!  Thas' what I'm talkin' 'bout!  And look ... wouldn't you know they're blondes? 
See the article here.

Dana NcGregor's pet goats Pismo, left, and Goatee surf at San Onofre State Beach, Calif., on Wednesday July 11, 2012. McGregor started taking Pismo's mother Goatee to the beach, and it wasn't long before she was on a surfboard. When Pismo was born, McGregor put her on a board too, and she was a natural, he says.

How in the WORLD did he get those goats to do that?!? My goaties hate, hate, hate water and won't even venture a hoof into a tiny little puddle! :0

Dear Candy,
I can't be sure, but perhaps there were Peanuts involved?

Mrs. Micawber said...

I think someone should mention that there's a nuclear plant in San Onofre. Just sayin'. Who knows what the side effects on goats might be?

Marigold said...

Dear Mrs. Micawber,
Oh, no! Teenage mutant Ninja goats! Say it isn't so!!!

Millie said...

I do not want to do that. I am not a fan of water.

"Auntie" sezzzzzz... said...

Don't you worry "Marigold"! You are so much wiser, to never what to try such theatrics. -pout-

Marigold said...

Dear Millie,
But you're a blonde!

Marigold said...

Dear Auntie,
You are quite correct. I would not try this, even for Peanuts. :)

But, Marigold, have these 2 goats eaten their daily quotient of thistles, poison ivy, and blackberry vines? I hope they're not just out playing around all the time and shirking their responsibilities.

Marigold said...

Dear Ozarks Goat Girl,
It might be a good thing they were shirking thier duties. Otherwise they might be full of holes from all those prickly things and sink!

The pic is hilarious! Marigold, I think goats are evolving more quickly these days. I bet it is because of the internet. Monkey see, monkey do.

I am looking forward to the first goat running for President. You know who will have my vote.

Marigold said...

Dear J,
Yes we can! :)

I would be perfectly happy if a flock of seagulls came and squatted all over Mr. McGregor.

Marigold said...

Dear BuffyBelle,
Duuuude! Where's your surfing spirit? :)

Melodie said...

I only know one persons who has goats that will go in water..I am pretty sure she could not get them on a surf board!

Marigold said...

Dear Melodie,
Certainly not if they are smart goats! :)

What a great photo!

Marigold said...

Dear Penny,
Yes, I wish I had taken it - but not that I was one of those goats. :)
