Billygoats in the Yard? Voters say, "Yes!"
Okay, so 18 people voted on the goats-in-the-yard issue. In an overwhelming response, 83% chose to support goats in our yard. I was tempted to shift the language of the question to ask whether voters would want goats in their yard, but I didn't. I'm sure that everyone would clamor for our goat(s) to visit once we got it/them. Now, the results are not a binding vote, but rather an opinion poll, right? And, though the voters responded favorably to the issue, they didn't approve a budget for said goat(s?). A quick search of the local goat-outlet shows some availability recently, but without an approved budged, it's only window-shopping there. It's the Duin Exotic Animal Farm down in Iowa, where, instead of a goat or five, I could get some chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, horses, or turkeys. No raccoons or squirrels. We've got a strong supply of rabbits, thanks. Now maybe if there were a rabbit-hunting goat, we'd be in business.
