Military Goats In History (Behaving Badly)

Mad Padre's Man in Dublin sends this wonderful piece on military goats. As longterm readers of this blog know, one of our primary missions here at Mad Padre is to sing the praises of that most noble of animals, that paragon of animals, the battling billy, the military goat. May a regiment has been graced by the elegance of a well turned out goat mascot on parade, but sad to say, goats, like soldiers, don't always behave well. Fortunately the story of Lance Corporal William ("Billy") Windsor is one of redemption.

Simply marvellous. I am now starting the day distracted by the mental image of goats eating cigarettes and drinking Guinness (when old enough)!
