Pet Goat

Today's picture shows a couple of boys with a pet goat. The picture was taken in 1940. I will admit that we had a pet goat when I was growing up. Goats are smart, and do make good pets.


  1. Of all the pets you've shows so far, goats seem the least "exotic" and the most practical. These boys on the farm have some obvious affection and pride for the goat, who might even be their 4-H project. I've never been up close and personal with a goat, so I don't know their personality, but I'd guess they're friendlier than yesterday's monkey. They also give milk, and I know their cheese is good. For some who are lactose-intolerant, as I am, their milk and cheese can be managed while that of cows causes problems. This is a sweet picture.
