"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

Setting A Baaad Example

This just gives us all a bad name.  Next thing you know,  all the Goatmothers, Maas, Goat Girls, Goat Guys and anyone else out there that lives with a goat is going to see this and EXPECT that kind of behavior.  Oy.  Not even for Peanuts, Goatmother!

Skateboarding Goat


"Auntie" sezzzzzz... said...

Oh-me-oh-my-oh-gracious! Who ever heard of such a thing?!?

I think those tricks, are *worse* than the skate boarding. Come on! What self-respecting goat would do TRICKS, for Pete's sake?!?

Don't let 'em even think about it, "Marigold"!!!!



Melodie said...

That was terrific! If goatie gate opening was in the Book of World Records I have a goat that would be the champion!

Marigold said...

Dear Auntie,
I know. I'm so embarrassed for that goat.

Marigold said...

Dear Melodie,
Now why open a gate? That is unless it goes to where the Peanuts are kept. That would be a good reason. If your goat can get that gate open, I'll give him or her 1/2 the stash. Well, maybe 1/3 of the stash. Well, some.

Oh my word! I like this even better than the surfing goats!! Only in Florida, or maybe California! :)

Marigold said...

Dear Candy,
You like this? Oh, no. I will write to your goaties and tell them to watch out or they may soon be skateboarding soon! Oy.

Marigold said...

Dear Mimi,
Well, I suppose one must consider the 'weeee' factor.

Myson said...

Me's wants to try skateboarding! It looks funnerest!

Marigold said...

Dear Myson,
Are you embarking on a literary career now????

Mrs. Micawber said...

Some goats will do anything for a Peanut. Shameless, that's what they are. (And do I detect a slight downhill portion on that "world record" run? Just wondering.)

Don't worry, Marigold. We shall always esteem you for your intellect and not for your athletic abilities (or lack thereof).

P.S. Is there a Guinness World Record for number of blog posts written by a goat? Might be worth looking into. :)

Marigold said...

Dear Mrs. Micawber,
I know. It is truly shameless the lengths some will go to for notoriety. I do have to point out, however, that Happie's ride might have been longer had the human NOT decided to do it in a parking lot with concrete parking stops.

I am so glad you appreciate my mental prowess. As for the Guinness World Record of anything, what's the point? I mean *I* know what I can do, and that's what counts. :)

At least this goat looks happy getting treats, unlike the stunned look on the surfing goats.

Dear BuffyBelle,
Quite true. Quite true.
