    Somebody needs to put a rope on that one, cut his cahoneys and feed him out, he would be great on the BBQ pit.

    It would probably be some tough meat. I haven't had goat since about my freshman year in high school Neighbors used to do up a goat once each summer.

    That's funny, they can be mean, My goat story, about 35 years ago we were goat sitting one of are neighbors Nubian bucks, he had a good set of horns on him. I was out picking apples one day and my daughter who was about 6 at the time, asked if she could come in and help, she had to go through the horse paddock where the goat was to get to the fruit trees. I told her ok, but as soon as she crawled through the gate, the goat started chasing her down, she's running, every time he'd get close he would rear up and try to head butt her in the back, I was running an intercept course, when I got there he was about to let her have it, I grabbed him by the horns and throw him to the ground, he got up, reared at me, I caught him with a right hook and dislocated his jaw, he gave out a couple of funny sounding baw's moved his jaw around until it reset, then went back to grazing. Told the neighbors we came that close to having a barbecue with their goat as the main guest.

    That animal in the video is not a goat but it is a sheep buck/ram! Big difference but still just as mean!

    Cabrito! Yum..years back, while a "staffie" for an admiral at NAS Corpus Christi, one of the more senior "staffies" was big into grillin' and chilling, and we could do the grillin' thing on Padre Island...dunno where he acquired the baby goats, but they were yummy!

    we had goats on our farm when I was a kid. We had a cart we hooked them up to and pulled us around. I learned early that when a goat tries to face you down, let him come and grab his ears like they were his horns and try to twist them off. They will leave you alone after that

    My son took this photo of a grumpy goat on top of a mountain in the Cascades, an area known as the Enchantments.

    They know how dangerous these guys can get, especially with a female present (see back of photo) so they stayed below the rock and he held up his Go-Pro with a hiking pole and took the photo. Click the photo to make full size.

    That's great! At first judging from the thread title I thought I'd see a picture of my mother-in-law:D.

    Grandpa used to have a curly horned sheep back when we were kids, he'd wait for you to turn your back to him, then WHAM! I used to forcefully hold my little brothers back to him, I was an ornery little boy back in the day.:D

    I hope the PETA crowd doesn't see that video, or all those people will be up on charges. They got to protect their animals buddies at all costs.

    I thought it'd be Rep. Maxine Waters.
