White House Goat

Today's picture is from around 1890, and it shows a family with a Goat Cart for the children. The picture is taken in front of the White House. Wow, how different things were back then.


  1. We never had a goat cart. We also had our goats dehorned.

    1. There are different breeds of goats, some with either very small horns or none at all. That is probably well-known to people in the Middle East, but not to Americans - or "city folks". When Jesus said he would "separate the sheep from the goats" it wasn't just a matter of looking for horns.

  2. What a unique photo. And a very regal looking goat!
