Today's military goat in the news is Taffy, the mascot of 2nd Battalion, The Royal Welsh, who was on hand to greet spectators at the London Olympics. This image courtesy of the UK MOD's website. Sadly, British Army Training Unit Suffield, where I currently work, does not have a goat.

The Royal Welsh have been accompanied to battle by faithful goats since the Revolutionary War.
