Military Goats In the News

It's been a while since I've posted anything WRT a subject dear to a Mad Padre's heart, namely the military goat. This last Thursday, March 4, was St. David's day and in honour of the patron saint of Wales, the Second Battalion of The Royal Welsh Regiment paraded with their mascot Taffy, seen here.

Sounds like a pretty good day for the 2nd Welsh's padre: "'Gunfire' (a drink mixed of rum and tea), a parade, a church service (complete with Regimental Goat Major and goat), a rugby match and a leek-eating ceremony at Tidworth Camp". Where do I sign up?

Rum in tea? Yuck! Sounds like a good way to destroy a perfectly good English tea to me... The goat is pretty cute though!
